It seems that LIV Golfers will not silently observe the entire situation. They have a ready answer to the ‘changes’ that the PGA Tour will bring in the coming period. Namely, Patrick Reed’s lawyer (Larry Klayman) who represents him in the lawsuit against Golf Channel and Brandel Chamblee, is now targeting two new people.
It is about two stars of the golf scene: Tiger Woods and Rory McIlroy. The reason for this is the meeting held by this duo with several other players at the BMW Championship, all with the aim of fighting against LIV Golf. “This is not a personal ‘thing’ against Woods, McIlroy and Monahan.
It’s about getting information about what occurred at the players’ meeting and generally with regard to allegations in our complaint that the PGA Tour, the DP World Tour and their commissioners Jay Monahan and Keith Pelley, are allegedly colluding in restraint of trade and the antitrust laws to harm the LIV Golf Tour and its players.”
Klayman on PGA Tour moves: Attempting to emulate LIV Golf
Larry Klayman believes that the PGA Tour is doing everything in its power to become a dominant force on the golf scene.
The presence of LIV Golf makes them uncomfortable, given that they know the financial power of this tournament. The PGA Tour has already made some moves that are similar to what LIV Golf is doing. Klayman is especially furious about it.
“Just today, the PGA Tour announced changes in its tournaments by again upping winning purses with guaranteed attendance payments for top players, attempting to emulate LIV Golf, while continuing to allegedly harm LIV and its players by, among other alleged anticompetitive acts, working to deny them world ranking points to compete in major tournaments such as the Masters, U.S. Open, British Open and PGA championships. One can perhaps now call the new PGA Tour ‘LIV Light.’ “
