Martin Kaymer refused to be part of the BMW PGA Championship

Martin Kaymer has decided not to be part of the BMW PGA Championship. Kaymer does not expect such a good reception and believes that there will be tensions upon arrival "There will be friction there, that's why I'm not going," Kaymer said for Golf Digest.

"I don't need to go to a place where, feel-wise, you're not that welcome. They don't say it, but [it's there]. I do love the European Tour and I do like Wentworth; I think it's a flagship event that people like to participate in, but under those circumstances, I try to stay in the area where the energy is high, where the energy is positive.

I don't know why I should fly to England, [and] be on the golf course for four or five days where you are not that welcome, I would say. It has nothing to do with the European Tour or the players or anything like that ...

but where we are right now [in professional golf], I try to stay away. I will wait until everything settles."

Martin Kaymer on the ideal solution: The hope is there

It was mentioned that the PGA Tour and LIV Golf could cooperate, but now they are far from such an option.

Both sides are stubborn and want to dominate the scene.

"The hope is there, absolutely," Kaymer said. "I just don't know if the main people in charge of all the tours ... are able to put egos and personal stuff behind and focus on the big picture in the game of golf.
I think it's very good for the game of golf what's happening with LIV and what's happening with the PGA Tour now.

All those things are good for the players, and I do hope and do believe in maybe two or three years things will change and will turn out good." Many hope that the PGA Tour and LIV Golf could find a common language. We will not exclude anything.
