    ^^ It is all about money. Fair enough Tiger doesnt want to join because lets be honest, he doesnt need the money and by joining LIV it might taint his legacy.

    Is LIV some new billionaire startup league to compete with PGA?

    The Public Investment Fund, Saudi Arabia’s sovereign-wealth fund, has essentially limitless resources to make this work.

    Regardless of Saudi money, I see this being the XFL of Golf.

    That said, if they chose to only focus on Middle Eastern and Asian markets and have their tournaments in those countries during their viewing hours then perhaps I can see it working as something completely distinct from the PGA. The whole team scoring aspect isn't enough to make this of any interest to me. Golf isn't exactly a high-octane sport.

    It is not though, the players can still play in the majors. Which > 80% of the golf watching viewer only care about. It's like Aaron Rogers joining XFL and still plays in the NFL playoffs.

    Whether they can play in Majors remains to be seen.

    Will the majors allow players to play for LIV Golf?

    That's an even better question. The answer in the short term is: yes. The major organizations -- PGA of America, USGA, R&A and Augusta National -- likely won't announce suspensions or bans of players who participate. However, those are also the organizations that control the Official World Golf Rankings points that get players into majors to begin with. LIV Golf has applied for its events to become OWGR events (LIV Golf Investments also invested money into the Asian Tour, which is recognized by the OWGR), but whether they are granted status remains to be seen and is the very thing upon which all of this could hinge. If LIV Golf events are granted OWGR points and silly money is thrown at players to lure them to the league, then several more top stars could eventually make the leap to the PGA Tour's rival.
    Regardless, as you point out, the Majors get 80% of the interest so basically you now have multiple tours (PGA, LIV, European, Asian, etc.) fighting over that remaining 20%.

    I think the best explanation for LIV is "sportswashing" - i.e. the Saudi government trying to distance itself from chopping up journalists in foreign embassies and bombing school buses.

    PGA tour thought it held a monopoly on the best players, it didn't. Like every sport the players will gravitate towards the money over time.

    SA is a shitbag regime, but at least they aren't poor.

    Most of the tournaments are in the USA and Europe. It's just Saudi money.

    A lot of money for sure. I just posted the events above, I think you will see a big shift.
