PGA Tour Announces New Golf Plans for 2024

The PGA Tour has announced a reorganization of its tournament schedule for the 2024 season to remain competitive in the battle with the rival LIV Golf Invitational Series.

Berlin – According to the plans for the US tour, there should be a certain number of tournaments with a limited number of participants and without cuts. PGA boss Jay Monahan has not yet announced which eight events that will be.

Rival LIV reacted to the news with malice: “Imitation is the greatest form of flattery. Congratulations to the PGA Tour. Welcome to the future,” reads the LIV Golf Twitter account. A similar format is already being played on the LIV tour: 48 professionals play for victory over three days, there is no cut. There is also an individual and a team rating. The individual competition is endowed with 20 million US dollars – the winner gets four million US dollars.

Imitation is the greatest form of flattery. Congratulations PGA Tour. Welcome to the future.

Last year, LIV Golf attracted professionals from the PGA Tour and the DP World Tour with enormous entry fees and prize money. Among them well-known golfers such as Dustin Johnson, Bryson DeChambeau, Cameron Smith, Phil Mickelson, Sergio Garcia and Germany’s top golfer Martin Kaymer. The LIV tour is criticized for the millions invested in Saudi Arabia. The background is that the country, which has been criticized for human rights violations, is trying to improve its reputation with lucrative sporting events.
