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.
For Greg Norman, the Saudi government and LIV Golf, the overnight press conferences were a victory lap of sorts; an opportunity to show off six legitimately big-name golfers they have successfully lured away from the PGA Tour.
Amid all the chaotic content surrounding the launch of the Saudi-backed LIV Golf series, Rory McIlroy has been adamant that he will remain loyal to the PGA Tour.
