Justin Thomas on LIV Golfers: In my opinion, that's their own fault

LIV Golf is met with the displeasure of many, and since the very creation of the competition there have been many criticisms. Justin Thomas commented on LIV Golf's attempt to be an integral part of the World Ranking, and that they are getting points.

"I don't understand," Thomas said, as quoted by yardbarker. "It's very obvious and written right there in front of them. They just naturally want what's best for them, just like the decision they made to go there."

Justin Thomas emphasized that most of the players were aware of the consequences. "Hey, if I was doing the same situation, I would want it, but that doesn't necessarily make it right," Thomas said. "The governing bodies have created a system for a reason, and that's to try to create the best system possible to determine the best players in the world.

Is it going to be skewed because some of the top players aren't going to be in there? Yes. But that's their own fault for making the decision they made, and they knew very, very well going into it there's a good chance they won't have World Ranking points, and they took that risk.

In my opinion, that's their own fault."

Billy Horschel gives a comment

Billy Horschel shares his views. "They knew when they signed that contract and took all that money what could come in the future for them," Horschel said.

"They had to weigh those decisions and what the outcome could be by going there and the things they may not get in the future. They made that decision to sign the contract and take the money." Max Homa is somewhat different.

"To my eye, it seems like they should get World Ranking points," he said. "It seems like if 48 great golfers play in tournaments, week in and week out, to my eye, (they) should get points. But there is a criteria."
