If the goal was to make golf more entertaining and have a higher profile, I think that LIV has already accomplished its goal.

Agree. Love or hate with LIV represents or is doing, they gave generated conversation, exposed some PGAT warts and are giving the initial guys generational money

You are welcome.
Just thought this would be all around better for people that want to chat all things LIV Golf.

And they gave the PGA a rival.

They named it LIV Golf then used Club 54, and didn't partner with Club LIV? tragic marketing if so and a missed opportunity.

Depends on what your higher profile objective is.

Just about everything about this league seems extremely low budget except for the player contracts..

Just like it says the main music act is to be announced in the weeks to come, the event isn't in weeks to come

Genuine question, what worts? The social media control was one I think deserves more attention.

The name of the game for having a golf league is the players. LIV is making a big dent in the PGA’s catalogue of name players. They may not be the best players right now but they have a concentration of well known names. Their leaderboards are going to be a million times more interesting than the PGA’s.

I'm oddly pretty excited to see this. I'm sure it will be disappointing, but the curiosity factor is fairly high currently

Assuming Rickie joins Bryson curious how that will affect Cobra/Puma marketing going forward as the two biggest faces of the franchise will be at LIV.

WOW :D:D:D, the budget for everything but the players is 2 cans of Coke and some cookies it seems like. Sheesh go get one of the big UK rappers or something since it is in London. Jessie J :rolleyes:
