    If a chunk of players go elsewhere, their sponsorship and attendance decreases. Deane Beman famously did this same thing to the Seve in the 80's and probably others (but he was the big fish) the end result Seve stayed away and the Euro tour eventually ended up no longer being a feeder tour to the USA.


    Exactly and keyboard warriors using their chinese made products to call out human rights issues is just as laughable.
    I agree in part that the tour is trying to protect their brand. Their brand is the top golf tour in the world. But that's still supported financially by large companies who by their own virtue, and how the world works, can't be squeaky clean. So although the tour itself may be able to stand on a high horse of sorts, being financially backed by companies, say FedEx, who happily trade and invest in Saudi Arabia, seems a bit hypocritical. But that's how the world works right.

    Their argument (from Jay ) seems now that they can't compete with the money of Liv as the main point. And clearly they can't. But as long as people watch and support it, it'll be fine right? Surely companies and tv stations and the like will put the $$ last and support true not for profit organisations first......

    Or when it comes to it, they'll choose the $$ like the players and it'll just be what it is.

    But like always, I may not agree with what you say, but I'll defend to the death someone's right to say it.

    Has the PGA Tour ever mentioned the dismembering enthusiasts or has all that come from their supporters?

    A lot of Americans remember the Khashoggi murder but forget rendition, Abu Ghraib, Gitmo, etc... and while wearing clothes and using products made in a country actively engaging in genocide. The Saudi regime has a lot going against it, but every country has dark secrets (and often not-so-secrets).

    Personally I think the PGA Tour is the better product at the moment, but who knows what the future will bring.

    Euro tour has fined their members 100,000 pounds.

    Which is less than minimum prize money.

    The Euro Tour had to pick a side, and now they have done so.

    It's quite clever actually. They can't ban Tour members. so they fine them a symbolic amount. Assuming they don'y pay it, then they can ban them.

    The event on right now, the BMW, is also interesting. Sergio, Louis O and Wiesburger would normally be star attractions. They have been grouped together, and the TV coverage hasn't been showing them. It seems a message is being sent.

    I am just watching the Traveler's this morning and was much bemused to see they are still running their Race for the FedEx Cup ad, which features a number of now LIV defectors.

    Did the DP world tour only ban them from the co sanctioned events with the PGA tour? Or have they banned them from all future events? Haven't dived into it enough.
