Not everyone was thrilled with the stunning merger between the PGA Tour and LIV Golf.
After it was announced Tuesday that the PGA Tour and the Saudi-backed rebel league are joining forces into one company, a meeting between the players and commissioner Jay Monahan got heated, according to PGA golfer Johnson Wagner.
Speaking on the Golf Channel, Wagner called the meeting “contentious” and that “multiple” players called for Monahan’s ouster.
Earlier in the day, the head of the PGA called the move to join forces with LIV Golf “historic” for the sport going forward.
“After two years of disruption and distraction, this is a historic day for the game we all know and love,” PGA Tour commissioner Jay Monahan said in a statement. “This transformational partnership recognizes the immeasurable strength of the PGA TOUR’s history, legacy and pro-competitive model and combines with it the DP World Tour and LIV — including the team golf concept — to create an organization that will benefit golf’s players, commercial and charitable partners and fans.
