Current and former golf stars reacted to OWGR's decision

The tension on the golf scene does not stop and will not for a long time. OWGR makes things even more difficult for LIV Golf, since they don't want to reward them with points. LIV golfers and leaders of this tour are slowly losing their patience.

.Jon Rahm is one of those who does not understand what is happening at the moment. "I'm going to be as blunt as I can. I think the OWGR right now is laughable. Laughable, laughable, laughable. The fact that the RSM doesn't have any of the top 25 in the world but has more points than this event where we have seven of the top 25 is laughable”.

- Jon Rahm said, quoted by golfmonthly.com Experienced golfer,
Davis Love III had an interesting reaction to current events; “I’d just get rid of them! Who cares? If you win the FedEx Cup, you win the FedEx Cup, you win the DP World Tour rankings, you win that.

“You can solve a lot of things in the golf world right now if you stopped using world golf rankings and went back to everybody’s money lists”.

The reaction of Greg Norman

The man currently attracting the most attention, Greg Norman, believes that LIV Golf deserves points, but will the leaders of OWGR react to this? "I understand OWGR has got to go through a process with a technical committee and they say there's a time period to go through, I get all that.

But at the end of the day, knowing the players who are sitting on the sidelines who are missing out, which is detrimental to the PGA Tour and the majors as well, it shows you that the OWGR was never prepared for a new entity like LIV Golf.

You've got to expect the unexpected sometimes, and when somebody comes along like we have with an incredible business model that actually is working, and has been proven to work as we've shown over the last eight tournaments this year, you've got to have that flexibility and adaptability to allow a new entity coming in."
