I have kids who like sports, a lot. I couldn't imagine taking them to a golf tournament. Kids that are young enough to be into the stuff in that video generally aren't going to want to spend any more than 10 minutes watching someone else play golf.

Good news, they can do all this fun crap instead!

Well sure. That's probably why they turned it into a carnival. Kids love those.

Honestly with how smug the PGA brass has been and the Pearl clutching legacy comments from current and former players I’m rooting for the LIV tour.

I haven't been following the LIV stuff. It seems like they've taken 15-20% of the highest ranked 100-200 players and none of the top 15.

Seems like they could try to entice many more players with the "high nine figures" money they said they offered to Tiger. Who knows what the ultimate objective is, though?

Brooks hasn’t even sniffed winning a golf tournament in over a year that I recall so he did the smart thing, I’m sure they offered him a number similar to dustin johnson.

I'm all for what creates the most bitter feuds so this seems good to me.

Me too. The European and Asian tours have played in Saudi Arabia for years and players who played there faced no PGA bans or media scrutiny.
