What I find it both ironic and hypocritical in the whole Lost LIV'ers conversation is how LIV was heavily derided by the PGA Tour brass and players that didn't defect last year regarding it's no-cut format and and were in lockstep unison chanting the "No cut. No Points" mantra. Yet, the PGA Tour is going to have eight no-cut events on its calendar next year. Gee, I wonder what inspired that?
Given that LIV's format currently doesn't comply with OWGR points criteria - primarily for their being no cuts in their tournaments, does this mean the players that participate in the eight designated no-cut PGA Tour events next year also do not receive OWGR points? Somehow, I highly doubt it.
Basically, what we have are two sets of OWGR standards - one for the PGA Tour and another for LIV. Or, to put it another way, "Rules for thee, but not for me."
