So Reed has Rory served a subpoena on Christmas Eve then expects him to shake his hand on the course? Absolute douche bag. 

The subpoena actually isn't related to Reed's case. Reed's lawyer is suing the PGA Tour in a different case, and the lawyer served the subpoena on Rory for that case.

To be fair, Reed using that lawyer - Larry Klayman - in the first place says only bad things. Klayman probably should not be allowed to practice law anymore.

Is that the guy who sued his own mother?

I get what you’re saying. But it’s pretty easy to believe. Media [People] loves this stuff.

Minor correction :-D TBH, I got a chuckle out of it 🤷🏼‍♂️

Yep! And I think that’s low on the list of bad shit he’s pulled, too.

Dunne has been pretty vocal about LIV and I agree with him.

"Dunne is veteran Wall Street figure who lost scores of friends in the September 11 terrorist attack on the World Trade Center, where his company Sandler O’Neill (now known as Piper Sandler) was based. "

“These guys had a choice to make, but they’ve made it. That’s it."

Have to say it is nice to see someone stick to their convictions. 
The LIV guys made a choice, they can live with it! (Ha see what I did there!!!!)

Of course three of the LIV events this coming year are at Trump properties.

Yes, excellent article. Also reminds me of how I'm less interested in the results of professional golf than I've been since I was a teenager. Which, unfortunately, was three decades ago. I'll be there for the majors. Everything else? Maybe not.

Okay after saying that I've watched a ton of PGA Tour golf. Maybe it's just that it's January in PA, maybe I just fooled myself on how much on how much I'm interested.

Butch Harmon, on the Five Clubs podcast this week, said PGA Tour players who have been vocal against LIV Golf “ought to thank them.”

 

Dumb analysis.  The problem with LIV has nothing to do with the AMOUNT of money, it is with the SOURCE of the money.

Additionally, purses were going to go up anyway. The TV deal is bringing more new money in.

Given that TV golf ratings have been declining for 20plus years, it would seem the PGAT succeeded in delivering for their members. That's a fact that escapes their critics.

Also something that's being missed in the coverage of PGA Tour purses is that it's just a reallocation. The bottom players get more in guarantees, the top players will get more in bigger money events, and the middle class will get squeezed a bit.

How do you figure?

The middle class on the PGA Tour stand to make even more.

    • My boss, out of the blue yesterday, asked me if it ever gets too hot for me to play. I've played in 112* in Phoenix before. Fairly frequently play in mid-90s in NY. Those days are worse than the 112 in Phoenix. I said no. But I'll play in anything. I've played in sleet, snow, hail (one time it hailed on us while blowing a steady 45mph gusting to 55mph - as verified by an anemometer in the clubhouse), torrential rain, high winds, cold, hot, you name it.  Lightning will get me off the golf course though. I'm not an idiot (well, not that much of one anyway).
    • I'm an all weather golfer. Luckily in my part of the Bay Area, it never get's much hotter than mid-70s, and the only humidity fog, so I don't have to deal with hot and humid weather. Most of the year I only have time to play once a week, and it's my weekly psychological break from the daily experience of work/parenthood so I hate to miss it. The only thing that really gives me pause is high winds, because my home course has tons of trees, and quite a few are diseased/dying. Often times when I am out playing and the weather is really shitty I will momentarily question my decision to play, but I rarely regret it.
    • I can't really vote. I'll play in 50° if it's even a little sunny and not pouring. I'll play in 90°. I generally won't play when it's pouring, ridiculously windy, or > 100° or below about 40°.
