LIV gets a big fish here with the better Koepka & 4 time major championship winner. This decision was in evitable, he has not had the best relationship with the PGA tour & the media here. Unprecedented times for PGA tour golf, I don’t blame these players one bit. I don’t understand why Americans are saying the LIV golf founders & investors are part of Al-Qaeda & that whole group of people. These players are being paid from the oil industry that has existed for nearly 80 years. It’s not Al-Qaeda and the terrorists from that country. That’s a very racist and inaccurate assumption for the media to bring up.

Why is it any different than going to play in Japan or Korea in baseball?

So it still exists. That stuff used to be on TV. I remember seeing it as a kid.
I wonder if there are Bowling Tournament groupies? Can you imagine what those women would look like?

Same. Seems so boring to me
If you grew up playing sports & golf was one of the sports. You can respect it from a technical standpoint & now a days more so from a physical standpoint, because the game has evolved. Tiger Woods was a huge influence on me to watch golf & to play it. Without him, I’d be probably saying what you just did.

Your probably right. I actually didn't play any type of sports growing up

I remember reading an article about bowling about 10 years ago. Bowling had really high TV ratings. They were higher than golf and tennis. But the advertisers did not like bowling fans so they cancelled bowling despite its high ratings.

Check this out. In 1983, bowling had higher ratings than college basketball and major league baseball. No joke.

I think I read that article back when some guy tried to get bowling back on ESPN and he tried to sex it up a bit by having the bowlers have more personality which was really stupid. But I think the ratings were actually about as good as anything ESPN had but they still did not want it on TV.
