Scottie Scheffler furious about merger and non-involvement of golfers

The PGA Tour/PIF Senate Hearing generated a lot of reaction, as many wanted to know more about the PGA Tour-LIV Golf merger. However, many were disappointed because they did not get answers to certain questions. The golfer who was the most disappointed was Scottie Scheffler.

He is particularly disappointed by the fact that the golfers were not included in the entire process.
“I just think that yesterday we didn’t really learn a whole lot again,” Scheffler said. “As a player on Tour, we still don’t really have a lot of clarity as to what’s going on and that’s a bit worrisome.

They keep saying it’s a player-run organisation but we don’t really have the information that we need. I watched part of yesterday and didn’t learn anything. It’s just a framework agreement right now so I don’t know what that entails.

We are not involved in any of the discussions. None of the players were involved in the original framework agreement.”

Players involvement
Five players who are part of the PGA Tour’s policy board – Rory McIlroy, Patrick Cantlay, Charley Hoffman, Webb Simpson and Peter Malnati were also not informed about everything and did not give their word.

It’s amazing that no one knew anything about it. What effect will this agreement have on the entire golf scene?”We are the ones that voted to put them in that position to be there and we want their voices to be heard, and that was really the only frustration with the original announcement is that none of those four or five guys were involved at all,” he continued.

“I love playing golf on the PGA Tour and I’m hoping that’s going to exist for a long time. I felt like we were doing a good job before and then the agreement happened and now we have to navigate the whole deal”.
