Golf, On Steroids

So, more defections to the new pro golf circuit—LIV, which apparently is both the Roman numeral for an 18-hole golf score if a player gets a birdie on every hole (par 72), and the number of holes played in these tournaments.

Phil, Kevin Na, DJ, several others. Turns out what really matters is the same old suspect: a gaudy payday. With the additional distinction of being financed by the Saudi government?

Tiger was offered something in the high 9 figures to play in this new “league”, but he said no. I didn’t realize that some of the tournaments will be played here in the states, competing against existing PGA events. And it promises to be a more “exciting” product. Because golf needs to be more like NFL football, with combatants.

I wonder how that’ll go.
