    Funny how the LIv stars are supposedly a bunch of old has beens but the pga tours stars like Fowler need the LIv guys to be black balled off the pga tour list to move up.

    What’s clear is it’s getting harder and harder to get into LIv and easier and easier to stay on the pga tour.

    Still, Rickie could also LIv the pga tour. He has been clear that he is struggling with the decision.

    LIv imo need to take signing Rickie to the next level. Fowler is worth so much more than his on course value.

    I’m still very hopeful Rickie will figure it out on course. Agree that not working with Butch hurts but I’m beginning to wonder if rickie doesn’t need a whole new coach. It’s been too long since he left Butch and the results—even just decent results— aren’t coming with this guy. At least not consistently enough.

    Making cuts is good for most players that are struggling but this man top5d all five majors in one season. These small victories these days aren’t enough for a player of this caliber. Rickie needs something new like yesterday.

    Because At this rate Rickies only hope to stay on the pga tour will be hoping more guys LIv the pga tour each year around this time.

    Then again he could just go to LIv now and probably have job security for about 5 years along with 9 a figure bonus in the bank.

        No I don’t believe that.
        But can’t blame the guy is nursing home age.
        And trump is not far behind.
        What a mess having all these geriatrics running the most important country in the world.
        I think the constitution needs a maximum age more than it needs a minimum age.
