    The penultimate group was the ultimate this weekend

    Rory and Hovland were 12 under Saturday

    The Cams were 15 under Sunday

    He's been turned into a non person by NBC and the Golf Channel already. Don't blame him.



    Completely on brand



    LIV has the two biggest gamblers now

    And Trump never forgets



    Bedminster hosting LIV not the PGA championship

    Using 9 11 families is low rent but this is a blood fued

    OK this is a current and young star but I won't miss him. He had a beef with Patrick Reed but now they are on the same side

    The traditionalists are really taking this whole LIV thing hard. My golf buddies are all losing their minds.

    Let the market work it out

    Saudis are at 650 million for a handful of players

    Doesn't seem sustainable

    Free money. $100mil just to show up, play a light schedule with an easy tourney format, and get paid whether you play well or not.

    I dont blame anyone for taking it. Just don't be fags about it.

    By the way no restraining order

    The trial goes on

    LIV won't let a player play opposite a LIV event

    I saw someone (Freddie, or JT maybe) commenting about "growing the game", and calling bullshit...paraphrasing, "Just say it's about the money, because that's what it's about".

    True competitors don't play "for the money" (I know, the money is NICE), they play to be the best, and to do that you have to compete against the best, and fucking grind it, every week.

    The greatest golf-watching memories / moments I have were majors and Ryder / President's Cup. When "the Field" gets appearance money (LARGE), it lets the air out of the pressure-balloon, for me, and for them, I'm sure. From what I've seen, they party like rock stars on the plane, even the guys that finished +10...Why grind when you cash every week?

    John Daly can't get into LIV (he begged Norman), but he will be treated as "royalty" in GB as long as he lives because he won The Open, 30-whatever years ago. IMO, history will judge them harshly, if at all.

    If nothing else, this should get the Tour to get its shit together. I'm guessing they won't though. Playoffs should be for top 8 or 16 and do matchplay from there. And for gods sake can we get a playoff event at a real course for us architecture snobs? Eastlake and TPC Southwind fucking suck. Willing to LIPO out Biden's Wilmington Country Club, but I bet it sucks too.

    Eastlake is part of the tour outreach. I don't see it moving anytime soon

    The whole neighborhood was redeveloped

    I agree it's a blah course

    The Women's Amateur is at Chambers Bay right now. That tells me the US Open is coming back sometime

    The judge talks some shit in the anti trust case. No immediate need but the trial will continue

    “If LIV Golf is elite golf’s future, what do [the players] care about the dust-collecting trophies of a bygone era?” Freeman wrote in her opinion.

    In the central element of the motion, Freeman ruled that the players did not prove that they would suffer “irreparable harm” if they weren’t allowed to play this week.

    In fact, Freeman found that “superstar” status was “even more available to [the suspended players] in LIV Golf’s 'extremely fan-friendly' league.”
