Fans credit LIV Golf and Phil Mickelson for the new changes within the Tours
LIV Golf was the first golf league to offer guaranteed money for its players. The DP and PGA Tours were against the Saudi-backed league’s this scheme. However, many are accusing that they are following the same now with the introduction of their new programs.
regardless of your thoughts on LIV, no denying a lot of good has come from them existing right?

“Now, let’s go back to ridiculing the tour that helped every professional golfer in the world get more money.”

thanks Greg. I would be very careful signing up for the card and accepting that though as I’m sure there will be a little small print that legally bans players from even speaking with LIV. Be very careful you read the terms PROS

Maybe those players should thank Phil and LIV.

Phil was right

Will Phil end up having a bigger impact on all golfer’s paychecks than Tiger? Hard to imagine this being the case a year or two ago but I don’t know that you can deny it now.

All pro golfers should be sending @PhilMickelson whatever bottles of wine he wants

Phil Mickelson was one of the first golfers to start supporting the Invitational Series of LIV Golf. He was also the first to question the financial dealings of the Tour. This has made him distant from the PGA Tour and many of its loyalists. However, now that the fans allege the Tours have followed the same path, some even asked the Tour players to thank Mickelson for helping them to get such benefits.
