Legality of PGA Tour-Saudi Bombshell Deal Being Questioned By U.S. Senate

Jul 10, 2023

The controversial alliance between the PGA Tour and Saudi Arabia’s Public Investment Fund will be laid bare on Tuesday when two Tour officials testify at a Senate hearing examining the bombshell agreement.

As part of the U.S. Senate Permanent Subcommittee on Investigations, the session titled “The PGA-LIV Deal: Implications for the Future of Golf and Saudi Arabia’s Influence in the United States” will look at the legality of the partnership.

Representing the PGA Tour are chief operating officer Ron Price and policy board member Jimmy Dunne — the man largely responsible for brokering the deal with PIF governor Yasir al-Rumayyan. Dunne has previously shared his side of the deal and his thoughts on the future, while Price wrote an op-ed for The Athletic asserting the deal is the best option for the PGA Tour.
