Eddie Pepperell: No cuts have no place in the top table of golf

The PGA Tour and its changes that we will see in the future are not what caused positive reactions from fans and golfers. However, it is difficult to change some things, and it seems that PGA Tour leaders have their own ideas, so they are not interested in other people's opinions.

Eddie Pepperell is one of the golfers who commented on the anticipated changes; "No cuts and smaller fields, I don't think have any place in the top table of golf. I think cuts bring about a great storyline and are unique to golf.

They can elicit some really important lessons you can learn from. "-Pepperell said, as quoted by skysports.com Pepperell explained why the cuts are important in the whole story. Matt Wallace's success best explains his view.

"Matt Wallace himself said he missed the cut at The Players by one or two shots and then look what he did [winning his maiden PGA Tour title a few weeks later at the Corales Puntacana Championship]. That's why you have a cut.

Missing the cut at The Players was gut-wrenching for someone like Wallace but he went home and won his next tournament. What are we trying to breed as an industry and into our top players? I don't think it's any good."

Rory McIlroy explains his view

Rory McIlroy is always there to support the PGA Tour, so it seems this time too.

"I am certainly not one to reward mediocrity. This is the most aspirational Tour to play in the world and we have to keep it that way. It isn't as if the PGA Tour hasn't had no-cut events. We have had no-cut events since I have been on Tour for the last 15 years.

The no-cut thing just became a big deal when LIV came around."
Billy Horschel just wants golf to be what it should be, and for everyone to take advantage of their opportunity. "I hope there isn't a division and once it all comes out and is all laid out, everyone can see the opportunities that are there."
