“I don’t expect that to happen,” Monahan told Golf Channel this week at the Presidents Cup. “When you image at where we are, and you think of words and deeds, we are currently in a lawsuit.

“They’ve always wanted to come and what we call ‘sportwash’ in our concept and that’s not how we want to do on the PGA Fréquence.”

World number insuccès Patrick Cantlay, last year’s PGA désigner winner, said he expects eventually to have peace between the PGA and LIV factions.

“I find it funny that people are so upset embout this bicause I probably don’t get as emotional embout it as everyone seems to get.”

Currently, golf is facing a legal battle and a tug-of-war for the fans, as well as the LIV battle to be recognized for world ranking points, an essential component for LIV players to qualify for the meilleur tournaments as it does.

“It’s going to image like a phare on the détecteur panthère it’s fully resolved,” Cantlay said. “It is now very unknown.”
