Pat's obviously a Glue Guy for the 4 Aces -- more important than the raw score he posts.

Let's do Tripp Davis a favor

Bill Coore's wife is Jewish. Can't imagine he's too thrilled to see his work being used by a genocidal Muslim regime this week..

Please, it's a Tom Fazio course. More later, after listening to the Australian contingent I am finally understanding how all of this is just a small indicator of our decadent empire losing its grip on the world.

Living about 20 min drive from the Course, I can tell you they're promoting the heck out of the C&C work in the local membership drive marketing.
Next!

Play at the BMW PGA at Wentworth was suspended upon the death of the Queen. There will be no play Friday. The rest is undetermined. It's possible they finish the first round on Saturday and then play two more rounds to finish on Sunday. In other words, 54 holes.

Did the Saudi's or Greg Norman kill the Queen to shorten the tournament? HMMM. ::)

Royal Sydney turned down Greg Norman and the LIV.
Should Super Bowl LIV (KC v SF) join the fray against these exhibitionists?

In the wake of this announcement, I am trying to get some clarity from NSWGC on same matter. Unfortunately current Club President appears to have a man-crush on Great White Fish Finger... hopefully common sense and decency will prevail.

Why not welcome the reigning Open Champion back to his home country?

I'm sure some hard up club will fall victim to Saudi Govt. Employee Norman's blandishments.... On the topic of Open Champion Smith, I believe one of his reasons (other than money) for signing with LIV was so he could spend more time back in Australia "watching footy with his mates." The Rugby League and Aussie Rules playoffs are in full swing right now, yet Smith will be reporting for work in Chicago this week.

Maybe next year when the Broncos actually make the playoffs.

Appropriate a LIV sellout player didn't win a tournament on 9-11. Maybe a hurricane will hit Florida for the LIV tournament scheduled for comrade Trumpsky's course in October. :o

Iím going to be about 2 hours from Miami when the tournament is played but Iím afraid of what I might say and donít want to end up on TMZ. I donít think they care what anyone thinks anyway. Itís all about the money.

The "LIV Show" comes to Chicago this weekend at (controversial) Rich Harvest Farms.


Bunch of golf buddies were on a text exchange this week determining interest to go out there and check it out.


We all live in the city or north burbs and the venue is perhaps 50+ miles SW of us.


12 guys on the text chain and not one had any interest in going. Then again, we are all in the "dying demographic" that watches the PGA Tour.


So, I asked my 26 yo son if he wanted to go.


Nope.

No surprise, I guess, Ian!
The has-been and outcast nature of the field, the lack of any real television contact, the exhibition-tenor of the format, the meaningless nature of any one of the events, and the political uproar over the LIV tour makes everyone of its events a real sleeper!

"Amazon and Apple ó two of the biggest and newest players in the sports streaming market ó both declined to carry LIV on their platforms, according to The Wall Street Journal. Other companies like ESPN, CBS, NBC and Fox have also already refused to air the Saudi-backed league, according to the Journal."

FWIW I just saw that LIV attracted Cam Smith and Leishman by offering part ownership.


Might explain Poulter's excuse for wearing the logos last week.


But a share of what, exactly?

Would you have attended a PGA Tour event?


Golf is one of the worst spectator events possible. I enjoy going when the USGA is in town - Ams, Opens, whatever - but that is more because I like to see the course in person, rather than on TV. And I went to the PGA event when they played at Nemacolin, but that was because I wanted to see Wiesy in person, striking the ball.


I don't care much for any professional golf, I see virtually zero difference between the PGA Tour and LIV. I watch the majors and a small number of regular events played at courses I'm interested in.


Professional golf has killed my interest in professional golf......

Ken,
   A share of one of those teams, which for the life of me I can't see having any value. LIV thinks they'll be worth $100 million each. That's their business plan.


   Meanwhile, the north parking lot at Rich Harvest was full yesterday. Based on the size of the lot, I estimated about 8,000 on hand.

I suspect shares were a kicker, much like chucking in a 3rd round draft pick to seal a deal. That said, I think as a kicker, it could possibly heap great rewards down the line. What is there to lose?
