    I’m sure breaching contract with the saudis will go well.

    formula 1 had some issues with a race there and the government threatened to hold the teams at the airport for breach of contract.

    The only strings attached I see is they have to play Asia Tour events. Both as a way to prop up that tour and the only way they can get OWGR points to stay relevant for majors.

    Yeah it’s nuts. It’s tough to blame them for that kind of money. These guys are already making millions and they bolt. The avg person on the internet talking shit would sign for less.

    Yeah it’s easy seeing a few of the top guys who already make bank like Rory, who was set for life when he was a teenage say no, but guys like Reed and other mid packers with hardly any sponsor sign up for 8 or 9 figures. It’s a no brainer.
    I mean they can get up and take a political stance and say I don’t want Saudi money and everyone gives them a pat on the back and it’s forgotten and they’re still in the same boat.
    I would respect the guys more if they said it’s a business decision. Instead of growing the game bullshit.

    Was out of town all weekend so finally getting to watch the Sunday NLU podcast on YT. Joel Dahmen asking Soly to be his caddy for the Scottish Open in front of everyone was absolutely hilarious. You could tell Soly immediately wished Joel didn't do that.

    If it helps at all, I went to the range at the marine base in Oahu this morning to get a few swings in. They handed me a King Snake 9 iron, a Tour Model 7 iron, and a Bazooka 5 iron and told me to have fun. They were all fine, honestly

    So ending wrap around season should help. But fall events turn into almost a long Q school for everyone outside top 70 of the FedEx

    hopefully they open those fall events to KF players if they’re not otherwise qualified or somehow giving the younger players more chances

    Ill be honest- all these News rules have confused me. All these changes are to benefit the players and to some extent, sponsors.

    Need some changes to the fan experience. A tournament where heckling in the backswing is allowed.

    It does seem like being outside the 70 would make the LIV money more attractive. For 2021 that would include guys like Fitzpatrick, Hatton, Jason Day and bunch of folks who are already LIVin it up.

    Royal Hawaiian today. I do not recommend their rentals. Super lightweight regular shafts led to my worst ball striking day I can remember. Lost 12 balls lol. Back on team fit is essential. Anyway, it was unreal. Pics from my in spoiler

    The thing is that if LIV is successful, these mediocre talents are just going to be dumped in favor of the better players that signed up, so unless the money was up front they are just chumps. They took the bullets and hijacked their careers so that better players take their spot and the money that was promised.


    Granted for Westwood, Poulter, McDowell that doesn't matter because they were toast.
