    Can someone explain to me the diff between the DP world tour and PGA tour with regards to LIV

    Why can Rory play in Dubai for Saudi money on the DP tour.. but not play on the LIV tour for exactly the same thing?

    I dont understand the moral high ground of the PGA and DP tours.

    (serious question.. not looking for the cynical side)

    Is it the case the DP World Tour haven't banned LIV players from their events, where as the PGA have?



    BTW has LIV set up any sort merit based qualification process yet, or do they intend too?

    Euro tour is now formally a feeder tour to the PGA tour and actually a second tier one behind the KFT tour. So the PGAT is generally fine with its players playing down on a subsidiary tour, but not LIV because LIV is openly competing with them and based mostly in the same market.

    There’s no moral or ethical argument to support it. It’s just business.

    Dubai money is not Saudi money. There is a difference. Mind you, some people don't like Dubai money, or Qatar money, or Oman money either, and sometimes for the same reasons. But LIV and the Saudi Investment Fund are being blatant about their intentions, so more people get upset about those intentions.

    Anyway, lets talk golf.

    Its a big day for LIV, even though the Saudi event is officially an Asian Tour event. I would expect almost all the big names who are there to become LIV guys by the end of this event, or shortly after. Surely the only reason Cameron Young is there is to sign the contract, or nut out some finer point details before jumping ship.

    At least we get to see this event on Fox and Kayo.

    The DP world tour banned and fined players who went to LIV but they appealed and there’s a stay so until the case is decided the DPWT has to let LIV golfers play if they’re qualified.

    I don’t think the source of the money is important other than to give the establishment (tours and media making money from them) the supposed moral high ground.

    Golf channel don’t care if Saudi money funds the LPGA because a diminished LPGA doesn’t hurt their bottom line.
