There are seven stated criteria that I've seen for OWGR points. Not sure if they're the only 7, but of the seven I've seen, LIV has satisfied one. That's it. It's not a situation where they're going to OWGR and saying "we've done our best to comply, so given the unique situation, please fast-track our application". They're saying "Hey, eff you guys, just give us points even though we have deliberately given the middle finger to your rules." The rules exist and they weren't created or changed to discriminate against LIV. LIV made the choice not to comply.
I have minor issues with things like 54 holes, no cut, no spots for local players. I have a big problem with LIV's lack of discernible criteria for qualification. I can turn on a PGA Tour event, and despite a handful of sponsors' exemptions, I know that every player teeing it up earned their spot in the field under the criteria established by the Tour. You can argue that the Tour should change it's rules, that it allows too many older players in because of life memberships, or other earnings based exemptions. There's a good argument to be made that a non-competitive Davis Love should not be in PGA Tour fields. But the fact is that he has qualified under the Tour's rules. Meanwhile, Chase Koepka and Peter Uihlein have had years to prove that they do not belong in top tier competitive golf tournaments. I don't know anyone getting into PGA Tour events based on who is in their family. Combine that with small fields, which means much of the field is made up of guys who simply couldn't qualify for the PGA Tour, and, well, I'm not that impressed that Cam Smith and DJ can beat 12-15 good players and a bunch of tomato cans.
