The Masters will bring a lot of excitement this year. A particularly interesting thing is the fact that LIV Golfers and PGA Tour players are part of the same competition. Will it result in certain conflicts? It's hard to predict.
However, the statements of the majority of golfers give optimism that respect will exist despite everything. Patrick Reed believes that it is unnecessary to put an accent on where someone comes from. The most important thing is to enjoy golf.
"It's one of those things, the media and the storylines are going to be obviously LIV versus PGA Tour and all that kind of stuff," Patrick Reed said, as quoted by skysports.com "But really the majors, that's all the guys that come in, top players in the world are going and playing against each other, no matter where they come from.
It doesn't matter what tour they're on or anything; it's the top guys going and trying to play for one of the most coveted events in the world." The most important thing for Patrick is to show his maximum. He emphasized that there are many great players in the tournament.
However, he did not want to deny that the success of LIV Golfer is important to him. "For us, at least for myself, it's going to be business as usual going out and playing. Would I like to have LIV be up at the top? Of course.
But really at the end of the day, it's all of us going in there and just trying to play the best golf we can and be ready for the four biggest weeks of the year."
Bubba Watson is optimistic
Bubba Watson is also one of those who blames the media for the whole chase.
"It's only awkward in the media," Watson said. "I've talked to people that are going to be there. I'm going to sign up with Jason Day and Cam Young in the par-three and some guys have already asked me to play some practice rounds.
The media is the only one that is pushing it. I have nothing against anybody. If you change jobs, I'm not mad at you."
