Ernie Els did not hold back on Thursday afternoon at Royal Liverpool.
Els, after his opening-round 75 at the British Open on Thursday, ripped PGA Tour commissioner Jay Monahan for striking a deal with LIV Golf and Saudi Arabia.
Monahan made a surprise announcement last month regarding a “framework agreement” with the Tour, the DP World Tour and LIV Golf. Since then, the U.S. Senate and the U.S. Justice Department have launched investigations into the proposed partnership — which still has a long way to go before anything is finalized. Saudi Arabia’s Public Investment Fund, which invested more than $2 billion trying to get LIV Golf running, reportedly plans to invest more than $1 billion into the new entity.
