    Not advising the players and having them learn this news via social media was a major gaff. Resignations should follow.

    Itís too bad that this will take some of the shine away from the Canadian Open this week. I am sure Rory is ripping mad.

    And Monahan stays on
    https://www.nytimes.com/2023/06/07/b...-golf-pga.html

    Monahan went so far as to suggest that LIV golfers were betraying the victims of the 9/11 attacks (an allusion to the fact that most of the attackers were Saudi citizens). “Have you ever had to apologize for being a member of the PGA Tour?” Monahan asked on national television.

    The PGA announced that it would merge with LIV and accept a large investment from a fund run by Saudi Arabia’s government. Yasir Al-Rumayyan, who runs the fund, will become the chairman of the combined tour, while Monahan will become the chief executive. As part of the deal, the Saudi investment fund will have the right of first refusal for future investments in the tour, allowing it to expand its stake.
