PGA Tour and European Tour Merge with Saudis in Shocking Move, Ending LIV Golf Feud

PGA Tour and European Tour Agree to Merge With Saudis and End LIV Golf Feud

In a groundbreaking move in the golf world, the PGA Tour and the European Tour have agreed to merge with Saudi investors, putting an end to the feud with the upstart LIV Golf league. The announcement came on Wednesday, June 2nd, and has generated both excitement and criticism from sports fans and industry insiders alike.

The new organization, which will be known as the Premier Golf League, will be jointly owned by the PGA Tour, European Tour, and Saudi investors. The merger is expected to bring about a number of significant changes in the sport, including increased prize money, a revised tournament schedule, and more opportunities for players around the world.

“It’s an exciting day for the world of golf,” said PGA Tour commissioner Jay Monahan in a statement. “We’re thrilled to be partnering with the European Tour and our new Saudi partners to create a new, unified organization that will provide more opportunities and better experiences for players, fans, and sponsors alike.”

Not everyone in the golf world is thrilled with the merger, however. Rich Eisen, host of “The Rich Eisen Show,” called the move “shocking” and said that it “stinks” for fans of the sport. Others have expressed concern about the involvement of Saudi investors, given the country’s controversial human rights record and history of using sports for political purposes.

Despite the controversy, many players have welcomed the merger and the new opportunities it will bring. Golf Channel spoke with several players who expressed excitement about the prospect of increased prize money and a more global schedule.

The Premier Golf League is set to launch in January 2023, with the first tournament taking place in Saudi Arabia. Only time will tell how successful the new organization will be, but one thing is clear – the golf world will never be the same.
