People that are very successful in any field are not friends with the rest of the World, their driven single minded arrogance and don't have friends like us. They don't function in our world that's why they live in exclusive expensive communities, as a result of that we think their idiots dicks etc but their extremely rich and don't care what we think...

Norman isn’t wealthy because of some single focused mental ability. He is wealthy because of his golf skill. He smartly parlayed that into branding, but it comes down to his golf persona. 

And there are super wealthy people who aren’t arrogant and unethical.

Read about the problems with his club in Florida. Read how he took advantage with his best friend’s wife. He just seems like a bad guy.

Shipnuck has to be a idiot thinking he'd be welcome at a Livgolf event, But as he's a bottom feeder just looking for free publicity that's why he was there. Lucky he didn't get slapped around lol...

He is a credentialed member of the press. He should expect to be able to be there without getting physically removed.

Yeah that’s hilarious, the thought of a well respected golf journalist being physically abused for doing his job. Why on earth did you think this was something even remotely worthwhile or appropriate to post given everything we’ve been talking about????

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.  A few have developed into friends after working with them for a few years.  We are far, far away from their economic status so it's not like they view us as financial equals that are worthy of their time.  (They have seen my work truck and been to our house so they know we aren't on their $$ level 😄 )  They are genuinely nice and treat people with respect.

I have also worked with people on the other end of the economic scale and they act like the "idiot dicks" you describe and also don't care what we think unless it supports their self serving agenda.  None of them live in exclusive expensive communities so in that regard they are different than GN.  I usually learn fairly quickly what they are like and either turn down the first project or decline any follow up's.  

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.

Something that I just heard - Even if LIV events can't win you any/much OWGR points, LIV could make their "World Golf Rankings". Giving points to players on all tours and then create a series of majors with Purses that are out of this world. They can then use their ranking system to invite players from all over the world to compete. I know history and tradition is what everyone hopes keeps the current majors but majors are only what they are if it has the best players. 

With as much money as LIV has, it can literally recreate anything. 

Following up on the majors conversation. US Open and Open Championship have pretty clear entry guidelines and I don't see that changing.

PGA Championship - meh, we'll see what happens but I also think that these players would be okay not playing in this major

Masters - Could have the biggest impact BUT look who is with LIV - Sergio, Charl, DJ, P Reed, Phil, (possibly Bubba) all winners. 7 winners out of the last 13 years... A ban there could actually hurt that tournament. 

LIV is in the drivers seat unless Monahan has a few tricks up his sleeve.

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.

If all the majors just keep their existing requirements and the LIV events give none to few ranking points, pretty soon we would see fewer LIV players in at least three of the four majors.

They really played into Shipnuck's hand by kicking him out. He's there to make LIV look bad and build his personal brand, and he's finding success at both.

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.

I will admit that I'm soured on Shipnuck after his hypocrisy about covid in 2020 and some of the resulting back-and-forth with both fans and tour pros on Twitter, so there is some bias in my takes.
