Six-time major winner Phil MickelsonHe said that the LIV Golf Invitational Series is here to stay and called on the PGA Tour for help with the Saudi-backed series.
The circuit broke away in June and has 12 major champions. However, the PGA Tour has made drastic changes to counter the threat. They have increased purses and established an earnings guarantee program.
Players who have joined the LIV Golf series no longer qualify to play in PGA Tour events.
The PGA Tour has had the best players in the game for the past 20-30 years. This will not be the case again. After scoring 2-under 70 in Fridays opening round of LIV Golf in Chicago, Mickelson stated that LIV golf is here to stay.
We should all come together to find the best solution. Professional golf needs the PGA Tours historic history of golf product. LIV has a cool, modern feel that attracts a lot younger people.
Both are good for golf, and LIV Golf should be included in the ecosystem. We all can start to work together as soon as this happens. It will be a positive thing for everyone.
