Scott is one of 16 players who were appointed to the Player Advisory Council in 2023. The PGA Tour board and commissioner can consult the PAC on issues affecting them. There are many.

This year is a bridge to achieve radical changes in the future for a PGA Tour facing the greatest challenge in their history from the deep pockets Saudi-backed LIV. Golf.

Scott, the first Masters winner from Australia, was seen as a potential candidate to join LIV Golf because he plays a very limited schedule. He has not expressed interest, but he has been fair in his view of what each league offers.

He stated that he joined PAC at the age of 42 because he was more concerned about the changes ahead for PGA Tour than LIV. Scott believes its best for each league do their own thing.

Scott said Friday at Sony Open, Im more interested what the tour is planning to do with it, not how we are fighting a lawsuit. Because I couldnt care any less about that. Im more curious about what the future looks like for the tour.

And I think it was worth diving in to that, I thought.

Scott said that he was inspired by how Rory McIlroyHe has played a leading role in establishing a new path with his comments and helping to organize a player-only meeting during last Augusts BMW Championship.

Scott stated, I feel like a few other noteworthy players — if you can call me a notable player — could help him move things in the right direction.

Its nice sometimes to think a bit further down the line.
