    They had a nice crowd at the end but let’s not pretend that rink was packed like 16 at Scottsdale all week. Not even close.

    Happy for Rory.

    Thanks to Norman, who Rory is clearly obsessed with, Rory can’t stop talking about the Shark, Little by little it’s getting easier to win on the pga tour for Rory.

    Cbs mentioned LIv early Saturday. And Rory mentioned it at the end On Sunday. You think LIv for supposedly a nothing exhibition is on their minds much ?

    Congrats to Tony for getting back on that second place train. He had been quiet since that win. Always root for Tony no matter where he plays. Btw amazing rapper Tony. Maybe LIv Hires him like actor Quaid to do one of their hype videos.

    By accounts LIv is dominating in the social medias, which is huge now a days.

      Well, the LIV has snatched headlines everywhere based primarily on the money being shelled out…..now long-term, if LIV cannot get on a major network nor get world ranking points, it’s game over and check and see who’s on the world ranking committee….lol

        Fox golf could be back, which I know thrills you Tom.
        But LIv and Utube getting solid reviews.
        My little one keeps taking the tv so I’m finding myself sitting outside watching more and more LIv on the U.

        I’ll be honest I finished the LIv event and the Curtis cup but didn’t quite finish the Canadian open, despite having a stronger field it still kinda had that JV feel to me (que ruffled feathers).
        It’s true, the money matters to me watching professional sports. Maybe cause my pops always asks me: how much the winner get?
        I love reporting to him huge numbers about golf; the sport I love; LIv is making those reports as impressive as ever.

        The world rank committee cannot simply ignore a tour with more and more top 50 players, Regardless who’s on it.
