I don't agree with its whole grow the game, but the overall publicity that has gone along with it has certainly been a boost for the golfing world in discussion and chatter.

This is one that I have a little different opinion on. I think from just the US perspective, the idea of growing the game is laughable. But if you are talking globally... that is a different conversation. This is a league that is viewable on YouTube, the most watched content provider on the planet. That reaches a lot more eyeballs then the PGA Tour and its current broadcast rights. While the LPGA tour does a pretty substantial world tour, the PGA tour doesn't stray from the continent that often. If LIV continues to travel to global locations and provide ways for people to watch for free anywhere on the planet... Its hard for me to ignore that as a way to help grow the game. It is also seemingly trying to include a pretty diverse group of players in terms of ethic and regional background. I think that claim of growing the game, while it isn't their obvious priority, can't be dismissed as not happening.

Only think I can think of is when they imported the new beta member test platform over? However really should not have effected just the default. 

Either way, the default has been buggy as of late especially when newer features are introduced. 

Good news is that I've found a quick fix for it so there shouldn't be any issues. 

For future reference if there is a issue like that to any and all, best to send a quick PM to myself or @GolfSpy_BOS@Golfspy_CG2@GolfSpy_CS@GolfSpy MPR@GolfSpy_TCU and one of us will get it sorted or be able to get ahold of the proper mod to sort it away.

Thanks you Sir, working normal now. It affected my Android tablet and my iPhone so was pretty sure it wasn't a fault on my toys lol. Plus other "blog's" worked fine...

Regardless of anyones side on this tour and how it impacts the future of golf both PGA and otherwise there is no doubt it has done a great job of stiring the pot to get lots of people talking about the game. 

I don't agree with its whole grow the game, but the overall publicity that has gone along with it has certainly been a boost for the golfing world in discussion and chatter. 

Just look at this thread alone as it has 20 plus pages in really not that long and as a follower of this thread I'm getting a ton of notifications on it at all times. 

And on my FB feeds and regular news media feeds it has gotten big. That is not counting comments like regular folks. On the classic golf sites there is not much said I think because most folks on there are like me sorta neutral on the subject. It has also been fodder for the mainstream media and there are folks reading about it that do not even keep up with or play golf. It has blown up to 34 pages on WRX and I know for a fact the mods have deleted quite a few posts.

In my experience this is way too broad a statement.  Due to our business I have personal interaction with more than a few mega millionaires and most are very good to deal with.  

People can be turds no matter the status of their financial bottom line or position in society.  

GN's arrogance is properly summed up by his blatant lie about not knowing about Shipnucks ejection while staring at it happening.  I would bet he was the one to order it.  

Yeah I agree upto the point when it's them or you you lose, but maybe America is different.

True. The other side of this is if LIV keeps getting players, there will be less players in the Masters and PGA Championship. The Opens will most likely stick to their current qualification rules which would allow most players the opportunity for entry.

As to the Opens, for the U.S., if the LIV players drop out of the OWGR top 60 and don’t have any other exemption (eg, won the US Open in the last ten years), they would have to go through local qualifying. Can you see DJ and Phil doing that?

It’s all new and something like this hasn’t happened in golf before. By the fourth or fifth event let’s see how much coverage and discussion LIV gets. Unless it gets more top players I’m guessing the interest, coverage, and discussions will subside.

Watched James Wiltshire's latest video from LIV and a few things stuck out to me:

#1 There's a lot of interest in seeing these guys play regardless of the funding.

#2 The potential for viewership and reach far exceeds that of the PGA Tour due to the welcoming of personalities such as James posting content to their own channels. Obviously, if you follow James at all you know he was invited and granted special access by LIV, but allowing him to create his own content rather than having him as a "guest" on their programming is different and something I quite enjoy.

#3 This course does not look easy. I don't actually know anything about it, but based on what I've seen from the LIV feed and JW's channel there are some remarkably tough tee shots with trouble on both sides, native grass areas that IMO are much more penal than the even cut rough at the RBC and the wind has been blowing quite a bit from my understanding. I think I am more surprised by Schwartzel playing at -9 than I am by the number of players who are over par.

#4 (Watching the LIV feed) We get to see a LOT of golf from golfers I've never heard of, can't pronounce half their names, and that's kinda cool. I'd hate to watch featured group type coverage of a bunch of golfers I don't know, but getting to see snippets of them is great IMO.

#5 (Related to #4) I like the updated scoring on the left of the screen, but I find it difficult to understand who's who sometimes based on how they shortened the names. I'd love to seem them play around with this a bit more.

I'm not saying I am pro-LIV, but I'm certainly not against some of the things they are trying. Would love to see some of these attempted on the PGA Tour.
