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

LIV: DeChambeau and a bunch of guys diminished by playing in shorts.  This will be the last time I put Koepka or Cam on one of my fantasy teams.

Rory is a 🤡

Rory should have stuck to playing golf and not jumped into speaking out on almost every issue and trying to be something he isn’t. Rory is the only person responsible for tarnishing his legacy. 

I wouldn’t go as far to say Rory is a clown.  But he definitely painted himself into a corner.

99% of the time when he opens his mouth he is isn’t saying anything and acting like he’s taking some stance and then as we see with liv when he finds out nobody likes him he changes his tune in hopes of getting liked and maybe an offer.

He should have done like Tiger, Jordan and others and stick to just playing and keeping quiet on most subjects. His actions yesterday aren’t new and it just proves who he really is and has been

So do you and Rory exchange Christmas Cards? Ha ha. I am obviously joking. However, coming in second at the US Open is no small feat. Yes, he potentially had it won and gave it away. However, I wouldn’t call him a clown. He has had a great career and has changed a lot over the years. Some players are more measured than others. They are all humans first and foremost. Some guys just answer at the moment without thinking of the long term effects. Some wear their opinions on their sleeve. To me I am just interested in watching their golf.

I think Rory is an extraordinary player and one of the best at driving the ball. His putter has been an issue for a long time. I wasn’t surprised by his misses down the stretch. 
 

Rory’s had some streaks of showing why he’s had the career he has had to date but he’s let a lot of non on the course things get to him over the years.

Like him or not he sounds like a lot of athletes when they try to speak about things that aren’t on the field related. But he’s always thought he was better than the game an he’s been very similar to what he showed yesterday when he walked away and took a quick exit.

I like watching golf albeit watch far less than I have in the past but the same goes for all sports. I like athletes who just play and ain’t try to talk on subjects they aren’t that smart about. I prefer the Tiger approach and Jordan approach to things.

I can agree with that assessment! Most of us enjoy entertainment and sports to get away from life’s distractions. Not have a player add to it. I also agree that he could have been more gracious in the loss. It’s easy to be a good winner.

... Ya just can't win that game. If they say nothing they are sullen and anti social. If they give stock answers they are disingenuous. If they give honest answers they will potentially lose 50% of their fans. Rory has had more heartbreak than most and I can't blame him at all for leaving the course after he yet again lost a Major he had firmly in his grasp.

Pretty respectable showing from a bunch of guys who purportedly can no longer play PGA tour level golf.  LIV's showing and stellar performance at majors supports why they should also be playing at PGAT elevated events as well. Presuming one really wants the best in the world competing against one another, that should be the next step.

As much a crushing loss as this is to Rory, I think it was bad form for him to bee-line off the grounds.  Correct me if I'm wrong, but I saw replay of him watching Bryson make the putt on the tube, then immediately head off with his group for the parking lot and quickly drive away.  Did he take the time to go out an congratulate Bryson at some point before leaving?  If not, that's pretty small on his part.  Would he have done the same had he lost to Finau or Cantlay?

Not what’s been said in this thread but not surprised either.

They could have been if they chose to not break the players agreement they all approved and agreed to.

Only ones at fault for not being at any pha tour event is themselves. The ones to blame for the ones not exempt from majors for having a harder time getting into them is both the golfer for leaving and the leadership of LIV for choosing to pass on adopting the proposal from the owgr board to get points. If Norman or whoever on that side didn’t say no then they would have been earning points and who knows maybe someone like Niemann would have not had to gone to qualifying and would have been exempted. Or maybe if they weren’t chasing the money and instead wanted to play with the best week in and week out they would have passed on the money tonsils their “legacy”

Cant have the cake and eat it too.

That’s what happened and it wouldn’t have mattered who it was that made the putt, he was out the door once it sank. It’s typical Rory. Then he drops some press release/social media post congratulating Bryson after the heat for bolting out once the putt dropped, while also saying he needs a break and drops from the travelers.

He’s weak sauce

The Mygolfspy instagram account has been surprisingly pro LIV all week.  Hopefully this continues 

Clever, ugly, and not very comfortable looking all at once.  If they require event winners to have their pictures taken sitting in it, we might start seeing some resignation announcements 😆.

IMG_3717.jpegIs Rory the new bad boy of golf?  Will he now join LIV?

After a week of this being debated and talked about, I think Rory is okay doing what he did. The difference between the two is that Bryson made a putt on 18 at Valhalla only to have Xander also make his putt. Rory missed his putts to have Bryson make his putt at Pinehurst. I think Rory is immensely frustrated that he lost it vs Bryson won it.
