Matt Fitzpatrick: I knew the LIV Golf-PGA Tour merger was going to happen

The fact that the PGA Tour and LIV Golf will be under the same roof is still a strange fact. It's been three days since we found out about the PGA TOUR-LIV Golf merger. It is still hard to imagine how everything will look, and whether there will really be a reconciliation between everyone.

Matt Fitzpatrick, who remained loyal to the PGA Tour despite everything, commented on the merger. And just like you, he found out about the news via social media. However, Matt expected this to happen. “Obviously I knew this was going to happen.

I knew I was going to get a million and one questions. I thought long and hard on how I'm going to answer them. And that's not really my job. I spoke to a few close friends of mine and listened to what they had to say, successful businessmen.

All I can do is go and play great golf myself,” -Matt Fitzpatrick said, as quoted by golfmonthly.com Fitzpatrick does not want to spend his energy thinking about the merger and how things will look. His focus is only on the future and on the tournaments that await him.

This great golfer is aware that he must do his best if he wants to be at the very top. “Whether everyone comes back and plays in the field, I've still got to beat them in front of me. Everyone in this field, I've got to beat them in front of me.

So obviously there's a potential sour taste in there for some guys coming back. But at the end of the day you're trying to beat the course and that's what I'm going to try and concentrate on”.

Matt Fitzpatrick talks about the LIV Golf offer

It is interesting that the offer never reached this golfer's address.

Even if it reached, Fitzpatrick wouldn't accept her. His desire is to play the biggest tournaments, and he knew that LIV Golf probably couldn't provide him with that. “I never really got a formal offer. It wasn't something I was interested in from the start.

I purely spoke to them purely out of being nosy as to what they're going to do, what's the set-up going to be. So, yeah, for me it didn't really make a difference. I was always going to be on the PGA Tour. Obviously for the guys that did turn down significant amounts of money then that's probably a tough one to swallow and I feel for them”.
