    Warren Little, Getty Images Patrick Reed bashed the DP World Tour for how he has been treated since he arrived in France for the French Open. Reed joined the controversial Saudi Arabian backed LIV Golf Tour earlier this year and feels that his treatment this week was a result from that. “It’s a slap in the face not to invite me to the press conference, or not to have me play in the pro-am and all those things,” Reed told the Journal Du Golf Members of LIV Golf have been banned from playing in PGA Tour events, but not the DP World Tour. It is understood by Reed that there are certain things that are out of his hands. “At the end of the day, it’s just my golf that I have control over,” Reed added. I’m here to support the Tour, France and all the people who are here.” Since LIV golfers, like Reed, are not eligible to participate in PGA Tour events, they use the DP World Tour to accumulate points in the world ranking points system.

    Team events such as the Presidents Cup and Ryder Cup are only 'hurting themselves' by banning players who signed up for LIV Golf, former U.S. Open champion Bryson DeChambeau has said. Players who joined the Saudi-backed LIV series are no longer eligible to participate in PGA Tour events, including the Presidents Cup and all other tours sanctioned by the circuit. DeChambeau has played for the United States in the past in both the Ryder Cup and the Presidents Cup but he will be watching next week's Presidents Cup at Quail Hollow Club on television instead. Bryson DeChambeau has again called for the PGA Tour to allow LIV players back to compete DeChambeau will miss next week's Presidents Cup and will watch events at Quail Hollow on TV 'I personally think that the team events are only hurting themselves by not allowing us to play, not allowing us to qualify through some capacity, in some facet,' DeChambeau told reporters ahead of this week's LIV event in Chicago. 'I would say, from a team aspect, it is sad that those governing bodies...
    Following the sweeping changes announced by the PGA Tour last week, Phil Mickelson has expressed his satisfaction with the increased compensation for his former colleagues. Starting in 2023, golfers who compete in at least 15 events will make $500,000 in guaranteed salary, while four more 'elevated' events have been added, bringing the total in that category to 12 - with purses between $15 million and $20 million. Additionally, the pool for the 'player impact program' - described by the Tour as the 20 players who 'resonate the most with fans and media' - was doubled to $100 million. Phil Mickelson campaigned for increased pay for golfers while on the PGA Tour As part of the changes, top players have also agreed to compete in at least 20 events next season, a compromise which Mickelson believes is fair.  'Well, they are getting a lot for it [playing in more events], he told SI.com. 'So I'm extremely happy that the top players are being listened to and that their input is being valued. And that those events are coming about.' Mickelson, who played...
    Cameron Young, the world No 17, says he is staying with the PGA Tour after having talks with LIV Golf about joining the Saudi-backed breakaway circuit. Young, speaking after the last round of the Tour Championship on Sunday, admitted he had been tempted by LIV but after Rory McIlroy and Tiger Woods spearheaded proposals to make the PGA Tour better, decided to stay. 'It's a really difficult situation because it's not anything that anyone really wanted to happen,' Young said. 'I think it wasn't meant to be this kind of hostile between the two. Cameron Young, the world No 17, says he is staying with the PGA Tour and rejecting LIV Tiger Woods and Rory McIlroy (alongside exec Mike McCarley) announced TMRW Sports this week - which will work in partnership with the PGA Tour in the future  'We don't know who's going to go after this week or next year.  'I think there's a really nice core group of guys that are just going to stay, and a lot of them are highly ranked players in the world.  'I...
    (CNN)Tiger Woods and Rory McIlroy will headline a new, Monday night golf competition set to launch in January 2024. The TGL has been formed in partnership with the PGA Tour and aims to attract a younger audience to golf through technology and custom-built arenas. Competitions will feature six teams of three PGA Tour players and will be televised live in a primetime slot on Monday nights. The high-tech concept will see players hit shots on a virtual screen before moving to a "state-of-the-art short game complex" in the center of the stadium, according to a press release.Every shot will be played within a two-hour window in a bid to make golf more appealing for spectators, who will be at the side of the greens to watch the action unfold. The inaugural season will feature a 15-match schedule followed by playoffs and a championship match.

    Pat Perez said having a chance to be part of the Saudi-funded LIV Golf series was like winning the lottery. He wasn’t far off. Perez didn’t mince words — he rarely does — when explaining his reason for joining. It was a chance to play less and get paid more. He even was seen at a welcome party in Oregon wearing a button-down shirt with prints of $100 bills, still not enough of them to reflect what he’s making. It wasn’t the signing bonus, either. Perez made his debut at Pumpkin Ridge last month. He shot 6-over 222 and tied for 29th in the 48-man field with no cut. And then on Sunday at Trump National in New Jersey, Perez posted a 5-over 218 to tie for 31st. Those two events brought him $1.804 million. Perez played 21 years on the PGA Tour and only twice earned more than that for an entire season. He made $304,000 on his own. The other $1.5 million came from being on the winning team, led by Dustin Johnson and Patrick Reed, which paid...
    The PGA Tour is closing in on $500 million in prize money for next season, with eight tournaments offering $15 million or more and limited spots available for the postseason. It will be the final time for a wraparound season that has nine tournaments starting on Sept. 15, has a six-week break around the holidays and resumes in Hawaii in January before the season ends in August. Only the top 70 players — down from 125 — will qualify for the FedEx Cup playoffs, with players whittled down to 50 players for the second postseason event and 30 reaching the Tour Championship and competing for the FedEx Cup. Starting in the fall of 2023, players outside the top 70 will have six tournaments to try to earn full status for a calendar-year schedule that will start the following January. The prize money for the 43 tournaments run by the PGA Tour is $428.6 million, which includes four opposite-field events. The four majors had combined prize money of $61.5 million last year. Still to be determined is whether purses will be...
    The dispute between the PGA Tour and the Saudi-funded LIV Golf series now has the attention of the U.S. Department of Justice, according to the Wall Street Journal, and the PGA Tour said Monday it was confident it would prevail. “This was not unexpected,” the tour said in a statement. The Journal said players’ agents have received inquiries from the Justice Department’s antitrust division that involve PGA Tour regulations on competing events and the tour suspending players in recent months for playing in LIV Golf events. The Journal cited a person familiar with the inquiries. The Justice Department had no comment. The new series is backed by Saudi Arabia’s sovereign wealth fund and already has attracted nearly two dozen PGA Tour members, a list that includes Phil Mickelson, Dustin Johnson, Brooks Koepka and Bryson DeChambeau. All reportedly have received signing fees of $150 million or more. For Johnson, that would be twice as much as his career earnings in his 15 years on the PGA Tour. At issue is the PGA Tour’s policy that members receive a conflicting event release...
    (CNN)PGA Tour commissioner Jay Monahan told reporters Wednesday prize money at eight regular season tournaments will be increased, an announcement that comes on the heels of several big-name golfers leaving the tour for the controversial Saudi-backed LIV Golf Series. "Let me be clear, I am not naïve. If this is an arms race and if the only weapons here are dollar bills, the PGA Tour can't compete," Monahan said at a news conference. "The PGA Tour, an American institution, can't compete with a foreign monarchy that is spending billions of dollars in an attempt to buy the game of golf." During the commissioner's news conference, the LIV Golf series announced former world No. 1 Brooks Koepka would be joining the venture.

    Three-time PGA Tour winner Bart Bryant died in a car accident at age 59 on Tuesday. The details around his death are not currently known, but the PGA confirmed his passing in a statement on Tuesday. USA Today is reporting that the accident occurred in Florida as he and wife Donna were driving from Atlanta back to their home in Winter Garden. The report did not include an update on Donna Bryant.  'The PGA Tour is saddened by the tragic passing of Bart Bryant and our hearts go out to his family and friends during this difficult time,' PGA Tour Commissioner Jay Monahan said in the statement.

    PONTE VEDRA BEACH, Fla. — Eight regular PGA Tour events did not have corporate sponsors in their title names. The British Open was not considered an official PGA Tour victory. Deane Beman was the commissioner. Jordan Spieth was not even a month old. It was on Aug. 22, 1993, when Phil Mickelson won the International against a field that included Jack Nicklaus and Roger Maltbie. Mickelson moved into the top 100 of the world ranking for the first time and stayed there ever since. Until now. Mickelson, who has earned ranking points in only two of his last 10 events, slipped to No. 101 this week. That ends a streak of 1,425 consecutive weeks — accounting for the 12-week freeze from the COVID-19 pandemic — inside the top 100. Whether that can ever can be broken depends on health and motivation. The most likely candidate would be Rory McIlroy, mainly because he cracked the top 100 when he was 19, four years ahead of Mickelson.
    The best movies about making movies How to Avoid Paying Taxes on Your Social Security PONTE VEDRA BEACH, Fla. – Earlier this month, European Tour chief executive Keith Pelley said the circuit was considering holding its own Florida swing later this spring, but according to Rory McIlroy that’s no longer an option. © Provided by Golf Channel “Pretty sure it's not going to happen, which is a good thing because I think it means things are starting to get a little better back in Europe,” McIlroy said when asked about the potential swing. The Players Championship: Full-field tee times | Full coverage Pelley told the Daily Telegraph that the circuit was considering playing three events in the Sunshine State in April after the Masters, ones that had been scheduled to be played in Spain and Portugal. Because of travel restrictions from the United Kingdom and South Africa to those counties, related to COVID-19, the European Tour began to look for alternative venues. If McIlroy’s response to the potential swing is any indication, the shift across the Atlantic is no longer an...
    5 Things to Know About Bachelorette Finalist Ivan Hall Highest Paying Jobs You Can Get Without a College Degree Plans for fans at PGA Tour events in 2021? Heres what we know Attention, fans. © Provided by Golf Channel In a memo sent to players last week, the PGA Tour outlined how it plans to ease back into the spectator business at next year’s West Coast stops, beginning with the Waste Management Phoenix Open and its “up to 8,000” fans a day. The popular tournament also plans to have a “scaled-down” version of the 16th hole, but tournament chairman Scott Jenkins cautioned in a release that, “if the decision is made by local health officials to allow spectators, it will be a small fraction of the normal capacity.” The memo also called for “up to 500” spectators or “VIP guests” at the Genesis Invitational “pending L.A. County restrictions.” All of this, of course, paves the way for the Tour’s spring return to Florida, where officials will likely face far fewer COVID-19 restrictions than on the West Coast.

    U.S. records over 1,000 new coronavirus deaths for a second day in a row 5 Beloved Restaurants Debuting New Menu Items While Cutting Others More people on PGA Tour grounds? Report says its about to happen — starting in Memphis According to a new report, the PGA Tour is about to loosen the number of people allowed on-site for tournaments, starting with next week’s event in Memphis — the WGC-FedEx St. Jude Invitational. © Provided by Golfweek Golf Digest reported that an email went to platers on Wednesday saying that title sponsors and tournaments will be allowed up to 50 guests per day at the events. Fans will not be permitted at events at least through the end of this season and into the early portion of the 2020-21 season, as the Safeway Open —the first event on that slate — announced it will not have fans. The 2019-20 season officially ends at the conclusion of the FedEx playoffs, the Tour Championship in Atlanta. The schedule is obviously jumbled, since the U.S. Open and Masters are both scheduled to...
    Fire ravages 249-year-old Spanish mission in Southern California 7-Elevens Free Slurpee Day was canceled and there are fewer food deals, Tax Day freebies due to COVID-19 The PGA Tour reportedly plans to play the rest of this season’s tournaments, including the FedEx Cup events, without fans in attendance While the PGA Tour had initially planned to have fans at many of its remaining tournaments this season, that appears to be no longer the case. This past week saw the Tour reverse course on this coming week’s Memorial Tournament in Ohio, which had initially been set to be the first tournament since March’s shutdown with fans. But they announced Monday that “out of an abundance of caution,” they’d hold that tournament without fans. And on Saturday, Golf Channel’s Rex Hoggard reported that the Tour plans to extend that approach to its remaining nine events in this season, which include the three FedEx Cup playoff events and the PGA Championship next month. © Provided by The Comeback FedEx Cup signage Of course, the PGA Championship was already set to be held...
