Last week, the Saudi-backed league known as LIV Golf, run by Greg Norman, played its first tournament in London. The headliners were Phil Mickelson, Dustin Johnson, Louis Oosthuizen, Sergio Garcia, Lee Westwood and Ian Poulter. Also last week, Bryson DeChambeau and Patrick Reed agreed to join the LIV Golf team.

All of these players have been suspended from the PGA Tour by Commissioner Jay Monahan.

This week, outside of Boston, all the best players in the world came together to try to win the 3rd Major tournament of the season, the United States National Championship.

Still, most of the conversation focused on LIV Golf. Question after question after question focused on LIV Golf.

Two-time US Open champion and four-time major winner Brooks Koepka has had enough. In fact, the calm demeanor on and off the golf course flared up a bit during his meeting with the media.

“I’m here at the US Open. I’m ready to play the US Open, and I think it sucks too that you guys throw that black veil over the US Open.”Brooks Koepka said Tuesday. “It is one of my favorite events. I don’t know why you keep doing this. The more legs you give it, the more you keep talking about it. »

A few questions later, LIV Golf was back on the canvas. And yet. And yet.

Is there a dollar amount that would make you go to LIV Golf? Isn’t LIV Golf perfect for you as you can focus on the big ones and play 8-10 more tournaments with big bonuses? What about the future of LIV Golf?

“I don’t understand. I’m trying to focus on the US Open, man. I really don’t understand. I’m tired of these talks. I’m tired of all this stuff.”he has said. “As I said, you are casting a dark shadow over the US Open. I think it sucks. I actually feel bad for them for once because it’s a shitty situation. We are here to play and you are talking about an event that happened last week. »
