Liv Golf Central Thread: Events and News

Message added by GolfSpy_APH,

We haven't had to say this in a while, but as a reminder to all that we are keeping this thread to the golf/signings and related content.

We are not going to get into the politics of it all and where the money is coming from etc.

If you wish to comment on that aspect of it all please feel free to do so on other platforms. Not here.

While much of LIV has become more accepted over the years there are still those who feel strongly against it and the backing. We respect all those who are both for and against LIV, however will not tolerate going into the weeds of all the "other stuff"

If you are not sure whether you should post something either ask a mod or don't post it. 

As we have before we will continue to moderate, remove or edit posts that go against our moral code and members will receive alerts or warnings to follow.

Thank you

... I lived in Bolingbrook for 38 years and liv has really shown its colors staging one of their LOUD shotgun 3 day only parties at Bolingbrook Golf Club. I have played it maybe 20 times and it will be a nightmare for spectators ... oh wait a minute, spectators? 🤣  

... A decent semi private course but faaaaaaar from a Pro level course. Quite a few narrow bridges around the course that will make following one of the shotgun mutineer teams difficult at best. Other than the relatively pedestrian island par 3 with a large green that even many high index players can find, there is not a single memorable hole on the course.

Felt kinda of the same way about this announcement. Nice sentiment to use a course that the average Joe could play but this doesn't strike me as a great venue for major golf event and the party scene that LIV wants to incorporate. I guess we will have to wait and see how it plays out.

... LOL! That green is huge, plays downhill from an elevated tee and really hard to miss with even a marginal tee shot. The rough around the green stops the ball from rolling into the water unlike the 17th at Sawgrass. Max of 173 yds from the tips for the pro's.

I thought this was a belated April Fools joke.  But a little stunned you would hold the LIV Finals at this venue.  Nothing against the venue, it’s just weird choice.

Should be amusing watching Bryson trying to hit a ball on the green from the tee box on all par 4s and par 5s. 🤣

It’s 7100 from the tips, same distance as most pga tour events.

Regardless of the exact attendance numbers, it was LIV's biggest success to date.  The finish could not have been better for the Aussie fans.  Personally I think it's great for the growth of the sport across the globe.  Maybe next year we'll have a Scheffler led team (Longhorns GC?? 😊) there to take on The Rippers GC.

I agree. There is a huge demand for pro golf in Australia.

Just read an article online attributed to SI that Jimmy Dunne has resigned from the PGATour Directors Board citing that he was left out of the PIF negotiations and felt his position on the board was now superfluous. Sounds like the inmates are now in control of the asylum.

it sounds to me like the players who stay with the pga want to control that tour, be watched on tv, play the best courses from week to week, and be recognized in public for what they do instead of what they did in the past. 

 

it sounds like jimmy dunne was pushing for a deal to ensure immediate monetary gains, which he as an executive is paid to do, regardless of anything else.

 

the players who are invested in the pga seem to have decided that it’s in their longterm interest not to join liv. if I had to guess the bottom line reason for whoever stays stays, i’d guess they like the fame and would rather take the slow money and public recognition rather than take the fast money to exit public consciousness. taking the liv deal is like being paid to go away. you might go up a tax bracket, but no one will ever hear of you again. further, it’s possible they actually enjoy competing, and don’t want to spend their professional life on an exhibition tour. they may value spending the majority of their professional lives in the US. they may value having an influence on tour level decisions, rather than be a courtier to a king. 

i can understand the appeal of both sides. i personally would rather have a say in my future rather than a well paid puppet, and play in tournaments that I watched growing up, but to each their own.
