For all the hundreds of millions of dollars splurged to lure big-name players away from the PGA Tour, both of the first two LIV events have been won by players outside the top 100 in the world ranking.
As with many other issues surrounding this upstart tour, the details around all the money are shadowy. In an effort to get more granular, the Fire Pit Collective spoke with four managers/agents who represent LIV golfers; they were granted anonymity to facilitate candour.
LIV’s tournaments do not have history nor identity to build upon. There is no precedent for this team concept in professional golf. It’s a not-small mountain to climb. LIV hopes to spend its way to the top.
