The players are finally taking collective action .The U.S. Professional Golf Association’s (PGA) Tour Policy Board, which is in the midst of negotiations with Saudi Arabia’s sovereign wealth fund (PIF) over a merger with LIV Golf, recently received a letter signed by 21 PGA Tour players .Attorney Jacob Buchdahl, who represented the players, told Golfweek on Thursday that the letter “requested information about an investment proposal that could change the structure of the PGA Tour and have a significant impact on the lives and livelihoods of hundreds of PGA Tour players.” The letter also asked for “disclosure of the process that has taken place and will continue to take place, and what each side stands to gain or lose. “In particular, the letter complained that “with the exception of a few, most players have no idea what these negotiations are about or how they will affect them.”

In short, they want more transparency and more disclosure about the PIF and its negotiations. The PGA Tour and the PIF have been in talks since June, when the PGA Tour announced that it had entered into joint negotiations with the PIF to create a new entity. The deal includes a proposal to merge LIV Golf with the PGA Tour. More recently, the company announced that it had brought a sports investment group into the talks, but progress remains foggy. Amidst the stalled talks, LIV Golf released its schedule for next year and pulled the PGA Tour’s most prominent advocate, Yon Rahm (Spain).The players who have rebelled are the lower- and middle-ranked players who have been marginalized by the popularity bonuses and specially designated events that the PGA Tour has introduced to counter LIV Golf .They include 카지노사이트킹 Korean-Americans James Hahn, Chez Libby, Scott Piercy, Lanto Griffin, and Danny Willett.
