World No. 4 golfer Patrick Cantlay is reportedly ‘rallying players against’ the PGA Tour’s agreement with the Saudi Arabian Public Investment Fund (PIF), that will see them join forces with LIV Golf.
After 12 months of feuding and legal litigation, The PGA Tour and LIV Golf appeared to have put their differences aside to work under one entity alongside the DP World Tour. The deal will bring to an end the ugly civil war that has plagued the sport over the past year.
Despite an apparent truce being called, it appears one player is not on board with Golfweek reporting that Cantlay is leading a ‘rally’ against the Tour’s decision to work with PIF.
Following the announcement of the agreement earlier this month, it appears players have been left out of the loop of negotiations. A whole host of PGA Tour stars have hit out at the lack of communication from the powers that be, including Cantlay’s Ryder Cup teammate Xander Schauffele.
Calling for the Tour to be more transparent, Schauffele said at last week’s Travelers Championship : “There just isn’t a whole lot of information out just yet. Some sort of the agreement still needs to be written up or agreed on, I should say…
Xander Schauffele called for ‘transparency’
“Everyone wants transparency. I’m sure in their eyes they are being as transparent as they possible can be, and all of us players would like to think they are taking acre of us, but if they’re not able to give us any answers, that means there aren’t any.”
