LIV Golf (Saudi PIF), "Mergers," and More

After Jon Rahm declared he still supported the PGA Tour despite being suspended for joining LIV Golf, a Golf Channel analyst was irate.

Rahm's comments are stupid. Lost some respect for him today.

Watched the interview live and felt similarly before the commentators began commentating.

It's sad, because I like his interviews. I thought he is thoughtful and well spoken. I feel like he might be trying to validate his decision by coming up with some strange logic.

I stopped caring about anything he says after he left.

Rahm could’ve just said he wants to have his cake and eat it too.

He's one of those guys that ends every other sentence with "right?" too. He'll say stuff in pressers like "well you get offered that much money, you gotta take it, right?" and I'm at home staring at my screen going "no! Not right! Stop trying to trick us into agreeing!"

And then I yell to my mom downstairs for more meatloaf... but seriously though, I can't stand people who end every other sentence with "right?" And Rahm is a terrible offender of this.

Had me laughing. That cameo's gotta be top 5 of all time.

I'm glad lot of people stepping up to call him out. I'm not sure about wringing someone's neck but I get AO's sentiment.

When someone is trying to validate their choice, statements concluding with "right" are often the MO.  Too bad he thinks he has to keep defending his decision, just do like guys like DJ and HVIII - take the money, play the tourneys and keep quiet.

What makes it worse is how vocal Rahm was about LIV not being for him in the beginning. He talked about legacy, how special the PGAT is, how money doesn’t interest him and three round shotgun start is not a tournament, bla bla bla. Now that he’s gone to the dark side, just tell the truth, you did it for the money.

He wasn’t honest then and doesn’t come across as honest today. Just shut up, play with your buddies in the Legion XIII team and collect your paycheck. 👎

You keep defending your decision when deep down inside you know you sold your soul.

    • Day 322: lighter day with some mirror work. Working on the downswing feels to get the hips more open. 
    • A flushed towering 152 yard 8-iron that never left the pin to a foot and a half on the 17th hole after a solid drive. The ensuing birdie putt completed our two man team match claw back to even after being four down through 10.  Tied 18th and the match but felt like a win.
    • A gross 6 under for a scramble is not that good. I would buy it. Our gross winning score is usually 17-18 under. First time I've heard of a handicapped scramble.
    • Absolutely. If my skills were reversed and I was a better putter than driver of the ball, I would have made that 8-footer. For double bogey  Mine is completely blind because it goes downhill starting basically right at the corner of the dogleg with the fairway sloping left to right. I know the line to take from experience, but just to give you an idea how it sets up, I hit directly over the two trees that the white line on my screenshot passes over, with a draw. I'm pretty sure my ball landed on the left side of the fairway. The safe way is to just hit it 220 to the corner and leave yourself just under 150 into a pretty large green, but there's very little reason not to be aggressive on this hole.
