On this tour, we see multimillionaires with no apparent moral compass readily willing to shill for a government that will literally murder you and cut your body into pieces and dispose of you at an undisclosed location when you attempt to procure a marriage license.

Good stuff!



These folks belong in Congress.

Guy on Twitter keeps saying they just at least be honest when answering and just say "I don't give a shit about that stuff I'm here for the money" instead of the mealy mouthed defenses they try

My guess is they signed contracts explicitly stating they can't do that

Ducking any and all questions about Saudi Arabia and saying what a great thing this is going to be for global golf. Would love to see someone just openly admit that they don't care about the source of the funds and they will gladly shill for anyone willing to pay them. Or, alternatively, to see someone back out and admit it was a moral mistake. Instead they just cowardly avoid the inextricably linked issue.

Aren't you ever rich enough? Phil Mickelson and his family couldn't live comfortably for generations on what he has already accumulated and could continue to accumulate on the PGA Tour and keep his legacy and reputation intact? Took a huge hit in my book. Golf is in a bad situation when I view Tiger Woods as one of the good guys.

Tiger Woods is a terrible person. DJ is a former drug addict. Phil is a serious degenerate gambler. I could go on about Reed or Sergio etc.

You should stop putting athletes on pedestals

You appeared to imply that athletes being already shitty means we shouldn't care when they get in bed with a despot.

There's always levels of shitty and each person is free to line up which levels are red lines.

I like how the PGA is trying to act like they are doing this because of some moral high ground on human rights, considering they have a tour in China, as well as stops in other countries with poor records when it comes to human rights abuse. They feel threatened by this tour and want to try to keep their monopoly intact.

I'm not here to defend the PGA, but holding a few events in countries with spotty records isn't exactly the same as letting a despotic regime bankroll a whole series to polish their international image.

I saw Patrick Reed joined, so they're extremely successful in attracting the asshole class of golfer.

China is using the PGA to “sportswash” their image too. There have multiple articles on it. I see them as one in the same. The PGA pretending to feign anger about this being about human rights abuses is laughable and hypocritical.

I actually had the same thought. Not about trust, but that that seemed backwards.
