LIV Golfers are angry about The Official World Golf Ranking (OWGR) system, given that they currently have no points. They are aware of how much they are losing. The biggest golf star, Tiger Woods, commented on the OWGR changes and what they are currently doing; “OWGR, it’s a flawed system.
That’s something we all here recognise. The field at Dubai got less points than Sea Island and more of the top players were there in Dubai, so obviously there’s a flawed system”. - Woods said, as quoted by golfmonthly.com The best solution for such problems is a meeting.
“How do you fix it? You know, those are meetings we’re going to have to have. We’re going to have to have it with the World Golf Committee and as well as our - the main tours that are involved in it. Somehow come up with a better system than is in place now”.
Woods on OWGR and their moves
There are many things that are unclear about OWGR “I remember in my career when I – I had a big lead in my career, I didn’t have to play a single tournament the next year, and I still would be ranked No.1.
We changed that system then. So it has been changed in the past and I’m sure this will be changed hopefully soon”. The Hero World Cup Challenge was supposed to be a chance for Woods to perform, but it won't happen.
"I can hit golf balls. It's the walking that just hurts. So that's just a - something that - when you've got plantar fasciitis, the only thing you can do is rest and try and stretch that out as best as possible, but it's rest.
How do you rest when you're hosting a tournament? You know, it's hard. So this will be a tough week. The father-son [PNC Championship] will be a very easy week, Charlie will just hit all the shots and I'll just get the putts out of the hole, so pretty easy there. But other than that, in The Match we're playing in, we're flying in carts."
