    Nah. There is a slow burn happening but he’s cooked and tells us all the time how much he doesn’t care so LIV is perfect for him.

    it would be nice if they catered more to the young players than the journeyman hanging on. But not sure how you implement that

    FedEx Cup should be scrapped in it's current format. If they want to have that in some form (season long race that people care about) have it conclude in spring with the big events. Starting with Scottsdale, including Riv, and ending at Bay Hill.

    -August just doesn't work for big golf events
    -Atlanta is about the worst course for the format that is played there
    -Do fall events where they can go to big cities with smaller fields at big time courses like described. Clubs won't mind giving up the course in August/September

    Get some god damned events in Chicago, Boston, Philly, etc


    Dump 3M and the like off of the schedule

    regardless of your stance on this thing I think we can all agree that making serious changes to the PGA tour, like Top 50 only events, etc., is only good for the sport. What took so long?

    Becoming stars because of the tour or in spite of the tour? Young guys are performing at majors. That's how they become stars.

    There are tons. Max as well. Hovland and Im the last couple years. Really the only guys making their name through Majors are Morikawa and Zalatoris. Morikawa was very highly thought of before the PGA really.

    The last published financials are from 2019, and the PGA Tour had about $70M in net revenue on $1.4B of gross revenue. So they aren't holding that much back and it makes sense to have some money in the bank for rainy days, global pandemics, etc. There are limits to what nonprofits can keep, in any event, so I wouldn't give Phil too much credit. Dude should have half a billion in the bank and doesn't, so he's not that great with money.

    I’m skeptical. That doesn’t make sense TBH.

    The internet says DJ’s net worth (not reliable at all, I know) is around $50M. If your comment is anywhere close to accurate, shouldn’t he be around a quarter billion.

    This has DJ making $40M in '21:

    https://www.sportico.com/personalit...-sponsors-woods-mickelson-mcilroy-1234632139/

    Another that has JT, Rory and Spieth together averaging more than $30M (and Phil and Tiger are obviously in a class of their own):

    https://thegolfnewsnet.com/golfnews...ponsorship-deals-prepare-to-be-amazed-117877/


    But DJ has made more more than $100M in tournament winnings and FedEx Cup checks alone and has almost certainly doubled that in endorsements, so $50M in net worth is probably light.

    I'm not going to fight this one, because its impossible to find verified information on golfers' enforsements, but maybe its 6-8 years, or 10 years for some. But it is attainable money for guys like Rory, Collin, Spieth, JT, Scottie, Rahm in a short time frame and who else is LIV giving $150M to? Brooks and Bryson have reason to believe they're on the backside of their earnings on the tour, and for DJ it makes sense to take 9 figures at this stage of his career guaranteed although maybe he would have been better off with winnings and endorsements on tour, but I can see why Rory, JT and Collin can be dismissive of a big payday that might shorten their career and ruin their images.

    Scheffler played in the Ryder Cup. And your definition of stars is wanting. None of those guys are stars. Tour die hards (and posters in this thread) know who these guys are, but casual viewers don't because casual viewers don't watch tour events. It's not compelling and neither is LIV.

    So 8 fall events with the Top 50 from the year in Fed Ex Cup points? I assuming they think they will get the money from a new TV deal for these eight events and bigger sponsorships as well? But competing at the same time as football? I feel like the tour needs to blow up their current calendar.

    Chatted with someone that works for NBC Sports about LIV. He seems to think their television rights will exclusively be held by one or multiple of the big tech companies. Said the traditional broadcasters will care too much about profit margins and will feel spurned about what happens to the PGA Tour, while big tech will take the route they’re taking with the NFL and offer outrageous deals with no plan for profit just to be involved. So it makes complete sense LIV is already starting a relationship (albeit in its infancy) with Google and Facebook.

    So assuming the Top 50 play those 8, plus 4 majors, plus the players and let’s say Memorial. And then if the FedEx cup is still around as is that’s pretty much their full schedule.

    Well they are using the FedEx cup points to determine who get into the 8 additional tournaments so the FedEx cup would still be around.

    Right I mean whether it’ll be the full 3 events or will they cut that down to say 2. Or give byes to the finals for the top 10 or something.

    Are the LIV deals exclusives, or do they want those guys to play in PGA events if they're allowed to do so?

    freedom to play where they want was a talking point but is Phil really getting 200 million with no guarantee of number of events ?
