    LIV golfers denied. Judge said their damages were contemplated by Saudi Arabia contracts and that they still have chance to play elite golf in North America in meantime.

    Trial set for next August during FedEx Playoffs.

    So no World Ranking points for at least a year, unless they go play on foreign tours.

    Gonna be super bizarre the next few weeks knowing at least a half dozen guys in the playoffs will go in the next month or two

    To chase money.

    No other reason to play on this meaningless tour that plays 3 round shot gun starts when he could be building on an all time great legacy.

    oh, and "growing the game" and "spending more time with his family".

    I don't see how the good LIV golfers remain competitive with these limited events against mostly scrubs and has beens and a lack of opportunity to play in majors that will only get worse as time goes on.

    But at least they get to party with Trump, play pro ams with Clay Travis and Caitlin Jenner and take a sick jet to the events. So cool!!

    In order to protect the reputation of TMB fantasy golf league any current and rumored LIV golf members will be removed from your lineups. This list includes Cam Smith and also people from the teams in front of me based on rumors I’m about to create and spread on Twitter. Thank you all for your understanding

    "The attorney explained that at least some of the guaranteed upfront money given to the players is treated like an advance. Based on the attorney’s explanation, the money players earn in tournaments is then counted against the upfront money they get when they sign on with the league."

    :roll:

    What a sham. PGA purses going up in response and the sponsorship money is going down. The scrubs are rejoicing and the handful of players still in their primes will be regretting this.

    Love to see it.

    Carlos Ortiz dropped out of the lawsuit. Must not have wanted someone to learn of something during discovery.

    I’m right there with you. I’ve never played what I would consider a real mountain course. I mentioned Links (PC) a bit ago, and that’s really where it all comes from. Castle Pines and Big Horn were awesome due to the constant insane elevation changes and where I spent a ton of time clicking as a kid while playing the flattest courses on planet earth in Texas in real life.

    There were a couple tracks in Tucson that were close (Ventana Canyon and AZ National), but they weren’t technically high elevation from the outset. Need some place at 7000+, pines everywhere, sheer cliffs, where a mishit drive carries 320.

    Royal Hawaiian was close to the old insane Devils Island, and that was better than I ever could have imagined, so I’m guessing the same will be true for mountain golf.

    I’m also not sure why the first coffee of the day inspires this style of rambling posting, and I’m sorry everyone

    Jigga is lying again. When he played in Omaha he thought our course had crazy elevation. There's not 1 pin you can't see from the fairway.

    Looks like 6. One of the few holes on the course where you can miss left and be okay.

    Edit! It’s 8

    Yep. Watching the Korn Ferry guys send it off the mountain made me feel much better. It’s an intimidating tee shot from the back.

    Our professional championship a playing partner hit one left that might have been up. Proceeds to hit it way left gone, OB right, way left gone then bunted one out there. Ended up finding his first but I had to follow 5 attempts from him.

    How is the guys going to LIV and complaining they are blocked out of majors any different that me starting a rival basketball league and expecting one of my teams to play in the NBA playoffs? If you want to play in the NBA finals you play in the NBA. You want to play in the pre-existing golf majors the pathways are laid out and you compete in events with OWGR points.
