LIV Golf is directly tied to Trump properties and business.  They’re in cahoots.  There’s a reason a certain segment of LIV fans are the loudest MAGA voices
And some pro-labor liberals are happy the LIV is helping players get a more fair share of the money from the PGA.

I think you keep looking for a political slant where there is none.

PGA good, LIV bad. Nothing more.

Totally normal behavior at a golf tournament.

There were 681 attempts to ban or restrict access to a record 1,651 different books in schools through August of this year. What books? Mainly those written by or about people of color or that deal with LGBTQ issues.

BAN ASSAULT RIFLES, NOT BOOKS!

There’s the rub.  With his properties heavily invested in LIV, they’ll be quasi-rallies and fundraisers.  When the Clinton Foundation was the sponsor at the Hope, it was also affiliating the tour with Clinton.  Sports are used by politicians all the time

Made even better by the fact that I really like Max Homa, and still hate Danny Willett, but what an INSANE finish to the Fortinet Championship.

Homa birdies 8/9/10 in a row to tie Willett at -15.  Both start cruising in rainy conditions.  Willett birdies 14 from the fringe after Homa just misses a chip.  Then Willett is steady down the stretch.  Scrambling from bad tee shots by making his pars.  Homa is a bit erratic, can't get anything done.  Willett makes a huge par from 10 feet on 17 after a bad lag.

Then onto the par-5 18th.  Homa bombs a drive, Willett in the rough, but Willett lays up while Homa finds a green side bunker.   Willett hits his 3rd to 4 feet before Homa chunks a bunker shot next to the green.  Willett needs to 2 putt from 4 feet assuming Homa can even get up and down.

Then Homa sinks an insane chip for a birdie.  Willett now needing to make his birdie to win...proceeds to lip it AND miss the 4 footer coming back to make Bogey and Homa pulls a title out of NOWHERE.  Nuts

Can we just do a three-way vote of Clinton, Bush or Trump as the official royal family already?

The European players who have gone to LIV are generally not in their prime.   Every two years we might hate IJP, Westwood, and Sergio, but they aren't the future of the team.

Ancer,  Grace, Looie, Leishman, Cameron Smith, Niemann are the core of the International team.

Tom Kim with an unreal birdie on 18.  This 20 year old kid is super likable.  The Americans could have slammed the door but failed in the afternoon.

Good.   At least it will be close enough to have a reason to watch tomorrow.

That dude has swagger Tower.  How about that shot from 239 yrds on 18 with his partner basically dead in the pine-straw?  That was elite stuff.  It's about to be 11-7 somehow.

PGA Tour had the opportunity to negotiate with LIV Golf , they declined, and took an adversarial approach instead.  Business decisions have consequences.

Give Immelmann and the International team a ton of credit for at least winning Saturday.  Mito is going to LIV but the other 11 could have hung their heads and blamed the Saudi golfers for the challenge.  Instead, they’ve at least given themselves a chance on Sunday.  Not an Adam Scott fan but big props to him for battling and being a leader on that team

I agree with the PGA's decision not to negotiate.

I'm not sure it will prove to be the best course of action.

At first, I’d have agreed with you.  LIV is losing in the courts and Capitol Hill and public opinion.  They have the $ to keep fighting but I’m not sure they have the plan now to win

I have become a big fan of Adam Scott over the past couple of months. Eve. His presser keeping the door open to Liv down the road I found to be a fair and honest answer. I’m almost pulling for the Intl team and hope there is some excitement tomorrow.

I hope the tour listens to him and really push their guys to play the Aussie Open.  Scott still being a tour member is a great surprise.

He can be a great spokesperson for the PGA and agree on the Aussie Open. When I saw him at St. Andrews two months ago I expected his quick departure and am now a fan. He is a phenomenal golfer and I wish him well.

International's scripting today was in honor of Adam Scott's last Presidents' Cup. Unless they come out in complete brown head to toe tomorrow, then that's the official Adam Scott to LIV white smoke from the Sistine.

Great fight by the International Team but just not enough horses and got overwhelmed by American depth.  Incredible golf from Sebastian Munoz today
