What do you guys think these big name sponsors like PING, Titleist, and Taylormade are thinking having their brand name on display at these media events?

Well Callaway put Phil's sponsorship "on hold", whatever that means.  It will be interesting to see what the manufacturers do here, because all the corporate sponsors ran for the hills right away.

At least for now with it just being streamed i don't think it will be a huge deal. I think more if an issue if they had a larger broadcasting contract.

Technically, they could use all of the names except Masters.  I would see the boys in Augusta putting the kibosh on that in a New York minute.  Saudi money or no, that is one group of men even they would have a hard time winning against.

The Team names are about the worst ever. Like, they could have gone with Laser, Blaser, Phaser, and Michelle. and had them been better.

Maybe Phil will start playing Yonex again.  Actually, come to think of it... he probably has already developed a mfg. company.  He will be playing a set of Mickelson Hy Flyers this weekend.  And we all know what the logo is...

Do not know exactly on that but correct me if I am in left field here---- Remember there was a Cobra Norman connection at one time

Based on the article below Norman is currently the global brand ambassador for Cobra Golf.

Well, maybe. A look at the trademarks owned by Augusta National, Inc. doesn't show a blanket trademark for the term "Masters" as it relates to a golf tournament and LIV Golf could argue that calling something the LIV Masters is distinctly different enough to skirt any trademark claim, plus there's little chance people would confuse the two, which is the crux of some trademark disputes.

This post does not constitute legal advice... just a potential guess as to how it could play out.

Not a lawyer either, but I have used one a time or two.  I would be very surprised to see them not dispute any attempt by LIV to use the term in regards to their golf product.

They probably do not see those two as being negative to their reputation.  This is the same group that limits the commercials during their broadcast to only approved sponsors and only for limited commercials (why you never see a "WHHHAAATTT'S UUUPPPP" beer commercial). Those men have more than enough judicial clout and leverage to make even a perceived slight something they could go after you with a sledgehammer for.   But, I could be completely wrong, just like my wife always says.  🤣

Also, right or wrong, I'm pulling for someone from LIV to win the US Open just for the content and takes of people trying to wrap their heads around it.

If this happens, I propose that we get @GolfSpy_APH overtime pay because this thread may get wild!

Perhaps, but watching the world burn while all these pundits have these takes... it's a fun time to sit back with a marshmellow and make a delicious s'more

With you there, the Golf Channel has lost their minds over LIV, not even attempting to hide their disgust.  If I was inclined to be anti- LIV, the way they are covering it makes want to see just what the "charlatans" and "con artists" are up to over at LIV.
