Jay Monahan & Tiger Woods’s Presence Adds ‘More Progress’ but PIF Merger Future Still Disappoints Fans

Once again, the golfing community is met with disappointing news! The idea of a deal between the PGA Tour and PIF arose a year ago, igniting anticipation among fans and professionals. The merger was supposed to be finalized by December 31 of last year, and it is now almost 6 months delayed. With each subsequent update, there’s speculation that it might happen this time, but has it come to any conclusion? Unfortunately, no!




The involvement of Tiger Woods and Rory McIlroy kindled similar hopes this time around, leading fans to believe that the PGA Tour might finally reach a definitive conclusion. The anticipation was high with McIlroy’s stance toward LIV and Woods’s recent assumption of the vice chairman position in the PGA Tour enterprises. However, is there any concrete update, even with esteemed figures like these?

Recently, reports surfaced revealing that Jay Monahan, Rory McIlroy, and the PGA Tour’s transaction committee, alongside Tiger Woods and Fenway Sports Group’s John Henry, met with Yasir Al-Rumayan and his team in New York. With the involvement of these officials and the anniversary of the deal’s inception, many speculated that the PGA Tour and PIF might establish some common ground.




However, instead of confirming the deal, what occurred was described as “more progress was made,” according to a post from @NUCLRGOLF on X, without any official confirmation or updation of the deal. In the same post, it also revealed that “the PGA TOUR Enterprises Transaction Subcommittee and the PIF have been meeting multiple times weekly to work through potential deal terms and come to a shared vision on the future of professional golf.”
