Tour ‘copies LIV’


THe PGA Tour has been ridiculed by Lee Westwood and Ian Poulter for copying the rebel LIV circuit. From 2024 ‘designated’ tournament­s, introduced this season as a lucrative response to the threat of LIV, will have reduced fields of 70 to 80 players with no cuts.

But the similariti­es to LIV’s format have been pounced upon, with Westwood tweeting: ‘I’ve spent the last year reading how good full fields and cuts are.’ Poulter, also a LIV defector, added: ‘Sounds very similar to another product that’s been spoken so badly about.’ Commission­er Jay Monahan claimed last year that the PGA Tour would not attempt to go ‘dollar for dollar’ against LIV.
