Money talks!

A more in-depth look than usual.


Sand Trap
Is the new LIV league a way to reward players, or the vanity project of a despot, or something else?

There are only three types of pro—those who’ve taken Saudi money, those who are thinking about taking Saudi money, and those who aren’t good enough to be offered Saudi money.

Oh, are they still doing that? Who's winning?

I'd like to hear some more about some of the Saudi golfers and their families.

I think it's the work of a murderous POS with too much $$$ trying to look like he's not a murderous POS with too much $$$ and is more a patron of sport.

There is also a fourth type of pro golfer. Those who have been offered obscene amounts to play for the Saudis but who refused it because they don't want to work for the Saudis. That covers the majority of the top players. Ironically, many of the ones who took the money have been whining ever since leaving. They want their ranking points, to still be able to play in PGA events and the majors while keeping their bags of Saudi money. Sorry Patrick, Sergio and Ian. You made your choice and we're perfectly fine with you gone.
