Paul Casey decided to be a part of LIV Golf. A decision that certainly causes a lot of reactions. Casey is aware about what he wants, and it's obvious that Casey can see himself in a project financed by Saudi Arabia. CEO of LIV Golf, Greg Norman is happy to have such a player on his roster.
Paul will be of great importance for the tour. "LIV Golf continues to attract the best players in the sport as it builds increasingly competitive fields with each event," LIV Golf chief executive Greg Norman said, as quoted by skysports.
"Paul Casey adds to the growing list of top 50 golfers who are excited to be part of an innovative and entertaining format that is creating something new for golf. "His proven track record on a global stage adds another exciting piece to the competition as we prepare for Bedminster."
Paul Casey and his decisions: I wasn't comfortable
Casey is a man who has made 'unpopular' decisions before.
A few years ago, he decided to play at the inaugural Saudi International on the European Tour in 2019. "This is not a decision I've taken lightly," Casey said for PA Media two years ago. "I wasn't comfortable going in the past, but I have always been open-minded and willing to learn.
I believe sport has the power to affect change. I've listened to the Saudis' commitment to this and their vision for the future. This decision is certainly what he wanted for a long time, and we will see if he and the others will make a good move, or if this is still a mistake.
"It is always better to include rather than exclude when eliciting change, thus I hope my participation will make a difference and I am looking forward to seeing these changes in person." In the end, LIV Golf will show whether they can really be the top of the golf scene.
