You seriously didn’t just try to compare Wolff to Tiger? Once Wolff has 15 majors and 82 wins, he will be a bigger draw after his ranking drops. 
 

I would much prefer to watch Scheffler over Fowler right now. 

🤯

I pointed out that owgr doesnt tie to viewer interest. I couldn't find a more recent poll,  sheffler has gone nuclear since this so would have been surveyed. Likewise cam smith would/ should rate on this now too.

But Phil, Bubba, Sergio, rickie, Jason day and matt kuchar making this list over significantly better golfers is the point of my post.  Matt Wolff played in one of "The Match" series,  he has market appeal regardless of his owgr.

Interesting that 7/15 on the list have moved to LIV and Rickie doing so would not be a surprise.  This poll having been done 9/21, it would be interesting to see how they rank now (same respondents).

I hate seeing Wolff's nutty-looking swing. He has been a mess on the PGA Tour. I would watch any of guys competing on the PGA Tour over him.

One of the reasons I like watching guys like him and 2 Gloves Gainey---- No cookie cutter swings but they do at times get the job done. One of the reasons I like the Champions Tour too.

i lost all interest in kuchar when he won a  tournament $1.4 million and gave his caddie $5,000 , he did give the caddie $50,000 after a lot of pressure from the bad news and fans .

kuchar is worth 30 million , good grief . kevin na gave his caddie a 1973  dodge that was part of the payoff for winning  a charles schwab challenge tournament plus caddie fees .

i have more respect for the pga players going to liv than i do kuchar

Cam isn’t a super popular guy. He’s not going to cause lots of fans to not show up to an event because he isn’t there and not many are going to not watch because he isn’t in.

I think hovland would have slightly more impact on fan attendance and viewership but again he’s not as big a draw as some of the guys already gone and there’s others who are as talented as he is to fill the gap

Same here, I like watching both Cameron and Sam Burns' games and if Smith jumps I will watch a little more.

I would be very surprised if Cam Smith does NOT go to LIV. The question is just when- after the Fedex Playoffs or after the President's Cup.

I see that Marc's name and move to LIV is expected as well.  They have the same agent.  

After Win at the Zurich, Cameron Smith Backpedals on Cutting Mullet - Pro  Golf Weekly

In other news, Ortiz has reportedly dropped out of the class action lawsuit against the PGA... citing that he simply "want's to move on".

Would his agent be that involved, I'd be thinking GN would be using the Aussie "mates" banner and talking directly to Cam..

A few weeks back, Chamblee hinted that winnings were draws against the contract amount. This was vehemently denied by LIV and some of the players. At the hearing, "However, in presenting the case for Talor Gooch, Hudson Swafford and Matt Jones on why the players, suspended by the PGA Tour for joining LIV, should be granted emergency relief to compete in the PGA Tour's FedEx Cup Playoffs, one of the players' lawyers said that the money allegedly won during LIV Golf events is "recouped against the LIV contracts.” 

And, "Later in the hearing, microphones picked up LIV Golf’s lawyers discussing the admission among themselves near the end of the hearing. Although the entire conversation was not audible, one of the legal representatives can be heard mentioning “Chamblee.”

All the contracts with LIV are state secrets it seems. 💩

via espn. in my opinion, the correct decision. They were not harmed monetarily via emergency circumstance. They may be harmed long term, depending on how the case is resolved, but that’s their eyes wide open, big boy pants decision.
