Scott Elected PGA Tour Athletes’ Commission… ‘Oil money’ against LIV

Adam Scott (Australia), who was once rumored to be in the LIV Golf League, was selected as the PGA Tour Players Committee. Along with Tiger Woods (USA) and Rory McIlroy (Northern Ireland), it seems to be establishing itself as a key player in the opposition to LIV.

The PGA Tour announced on the 15th (Korean time) that Scott has been elected as the chairman of the 16-member PGA Tour Players Committee. Scott, who was elected by the players’ vote, will participate as a director of the PGA Tour policy board for three years from January next year. 

With the election of the chairman of the PGA Tour Players Committee, rumors of Scott joining LIV also went under the surface. Scott, once ranked number one in the world, is known to have received several offers to join LIV golf because he is popular with the public and is close to Greg Norman, the head of LIV and a senior Australian golfer. 

Scott also made several favorable remarks to LIV and seemed likely to join. However, when he was elected to the chairperson representing PGA Tour players, the LIV line was virtually over. 

LIV, which is operated under the auspices of Saudi Arabia’s sovereign wealth fund PIF, has attracted PGA Tour players with enormous oil money since its launch in 2022. World-class players who boasted high recognition on the PGA Tour, such as Phil Mickelson, Dustin Johnson, Brooks Koepka, and Bryson DeChambo (above USA), moved the stage.  안전놀이터

LIV is known to have offered astronomical amounts to Woods and McIlroy as well. It is known that Woods was offered an amount of about 800 million dollars (1.2 trillion won). However, Woods solidified unity with top-ranked players on the PGA Tour, such as McIlroy, and remained on the PGA Tour, establishing himself as an opponent of LIV. 

On top of that, with Scott elected as the PGA Tour Players Commissioner, he appears to have virtually joined the opposition to LIV.
