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

The bottom-line is that history is stuffed plum full of horrific and inhumane actions by governments and countries around the globe.

Wow, lots of false equivalencies here to justify rationalizing the egregiousness of the sportswashing. Also this thread is going off track into politics again. 
 

Claude is way off. Did NBC take millions from the Chinese government for broadcasting the Olympics? Did Tiger work for the Chinese government? Those are really unintelligent comparisons.

Ah, you've swayed me!  No, actually it wasn't you.  It was a few Sundays ago when I was in that south-side sports bar and the lion's share of the patrons wanted the TVs switched over to WGN from the Sox game in favor of the LIV coverage because, "...those Saudis are really not so bad."  There are reports of the same phenomena occurring on the north side amonst Cubs fans.

While I'm sure Brandel is not looking over his shoulder at you, perhaps you could explain how this "sportwashing" nonsense is NOT political.

... Saudi Arabia's Private Investment Fund is worth a reported $620 Billion dollars. This week the winner gets $4 Million and 4th place gets $1 Million. 1st place teams make another $3 Million. 

... But evidently if you want to see 10's of Millions of dollars being handed out every week and watch the tournament to the conclusion and not a Golden Girls repeat, you need to pay $3 per day to see it on ... Youtube!  🤣

"Kevin Na putting for the lead"... now that's something I haven't heard for some time 😆.  It wasn't too long ago Keven was walking in putts from everywhere and contending.  Thus far, his Tour 54 career has been rather lackluster but maybe he can breakthrough. At present, he's going to have to get past Smith, Varner, and Louie if he's going to grab one of the big paychecks.  While a Na win would be cool, I'm pulling for Harold to get it done... he is way overdue.

Lots of folks out to watch the event this holiday weekend.  The ariel shots of the course look cool... very lush.

The Aimpoint putt overlay graphic is pretty cool except it's default ball speed does not seem to match results that consistently.  HV3 just putted to save par on #4 and his ball followed the trace exactly but went right past the cup.  I've seen a few others do the same.  I wonder how ball speed is factored into the algorithm.

Congratulations HV3!! 👏  That was a really great horse race to the finish.  Brendan Grace ties it up on the last hole but Harold never flinched.  He definitely had his "A game" today and just kept making quality shot after shot.  I'm happy to see him get this win and suspect this may help assuage some doubts he probably had about making the move from the PGA Tour.

I will say the podium award format leaves the ending a bit flat for me.  First, that repeating gawdawful flat black trophy may actually be uglier than the Sanderson Farms 🫣.  I dunno, maybe they are made of black onyx or something but it would seem they could come up with something much better.  Second is the lightening speed pace of both the individual and team celebration.  Maybe excuse the runner-ups and have a brief interview with the winner.

I have CW channel as part of my streaming service.  LIV is the only thing I've watch on that channel but looking through the offerings, there might be a couple of other shows worth a look.

So was Tour 54 the "Trojan Horse"?  If the deal/merger/joint venture/hostile takeover passes the monopoly challenge and gets approved, it would seem that this tour will fizzle out in short order and many players will move back to the other tours... some with much bigger bank accounts than they would otherwise have had.

Actually would be surprised if Liv still has a Tour in 2024, I think you'll find there finished this YEAR.... 🫢

Very interesting thread on Twitter this morning re: the potential PIF/PGAT/DPWT agreement. I don’t travel in the investment banking/venture capital world, but Bob seems to. It’s a long thread, but to summarize, it’s the “Golden Rule” theory: The one with the gold makes the rules. Don’t expect Yasir to let Jay, Jimmy & Keith dismantle team golf when he’s invested ALL the money.

It was a very interesting read. Only time will tell how this all shakes out but if he's right, I don't envy Monahan and the other leaders at PGAT.

If you believe the PGA tour as we know it will survive your on the wrong planet, but to make you feel good I've got some shares in the the SYDNEY HARBOUR BRIDGE I can sell going cheap 1,000,000,000,000,000 don't hesitate they won't last past the day 🤗

Still lots of scuttle-butt concerning all this and I think this falls squarely into the believe nothing you hear and only half of what you read... and that may be overly trusting.  

Not finding much specifics on Monahan's status or what the medical issue was - though can totally respect his desire to maintain privacy.  I did hear some rumblings that he would be returning to duty soon.  I found this article interesting, particularly as it relates to Cantlay.  He, IMO, is a perfect example of what I stated in another thread about the most recent PGA Tour format changes (pre merger bombshell), and how I think it is going to fracture the players and cause animosity.  Cantlay is one of the top players but isn't a "needle mover".  Unlike Tiger who needs only send our a Tweet of him swinging a club at his home range to garnish #1 PIP payout, Patrick won't likely see a dime.  I also think the author is correct on this "sense of entiltement" that seems to be so very ubiquitous these days. 

It is definitely going to be interesting seeing how this all playes out.

I’ll start by saying I’m not an Eamon Lynch fan. Rather listen to Brandel, and THAT’S saying something. My biggest problem with this “article” is the “my sources” garbage. If somebody said what they said, then make them say it on the record. 
My personal guess, however, is that both Cantlay and Schauffele are kicking themselves they didn’t strike when they both were probably worth at least $150M to LIV. Now? Zero value.

Should golfers who turned down LIV by staying loyal to the PGA be 'made whole' after the PGA merged with LIV? Curious to know what people think would be fair.

I’m not a lawyer or more importantly in this case, a judge. I’m sure everyone who was offered a contact with LIV sought professional advice from their agent many of whom are attorneys.
 

They are grown men who made a decision to stay on the PGA tour. Purses have increased significantly this season. I’m struggling to see how they were harmed. Until such time as others who are currently banned from the tour are re-admitted I don’t see where they have a complaint. 
 

So my opinion is wait and see. 

Taylor Made Stealth 2 10.5 Diamana S plus 60  Aldila  R flex   - 42.25 inches 

SMT 4 wood bassara R flex, four wood head, 3 wood shaft

Ping G410 7, 9 wood  Alta 65 R flex

Srixon ZX5 MK II  5-GW - UST recoil Dart 65 R flex

India 52,56 (60 pending)  UST recoil 75's R flex  

Evon roll ER 5 32 inches

It's our offseason so auditioning candidates - looking for that right mix of low spin long, more spin around the greens - TBD

Nope.  In private industry people leave companies for more money/benefits all the time and often return to where they left garnishing further increases. The "I stayed loyal now you need to enrich me" cry falls flat with me.

“Nothing ventured, NOTHING gained”. Fortune (literally) favored the bold in this case. Those who stayed made their choice. 

"Where'd it go?"  "Right in the Lumberyard..."

If you believe the PGA tour as we know it will survive your on the wrong planet, but to make you feel good I've got some shares in the the SYDNEY HARBOUR BRIDGE I can sell going cheap 1,000,000,000,000,000 don't hesitate they won't last past the day 🤗

Will survive?  It's already been divided into Designated Tour and DP USA.  I was looking at the Deere field and said to myself, well many are playing the Scottish Open.  Lo and behold that's not until next week!  PGATour Power Ranking had Johnny Kuest (wave if you get that reference) #15 and he's not even a member!
