Where will the merger leave the current USPGA and DP World Tour sponsors, e.g. the likes of Rolex? Will they pull out of golf sponsorship?
I’m not attracted to LIV or the concept of professional golf in random teams. Would be great if a rival tour is established, as surely LIV won’t be able to accommodate all current LIV, USPGA, DP World Tour and Challenge Tour players.
I am sure that those players who backed the PGA and DP World tours and didn't take the blood money will be royally pissed off at this. Will wait to hear what Rory and the rest have to say but I suspect this is just the start. What a mess.
Edit. Although I see that Rory has begrudgingly accepted it. Doesn't have a choice really I suppose:
