Disappointed

Not a review, just a statement: I’m very disappointed, as a fan of golf (any golf). You state that you protect players and make sure they get cover. What Phil did, take steps to create a competing league while playing on the PGA tour, was definitely wrong. Phil is representing this as good for the PGA tour. While there are a few things (PIP & higher tournament prize money) which have been brought forward. Let’s not kid ourselves, Phil wants more money for himself, while taking it away from “lower tier”players.
As a fan, I’m not sure I want to support dishonest reporters, players who are greedy and most of competitive golf not caring about the fans. I cannot be the only fan that does not want to support what seems like an increasingly corrupt and fraudulent sport and the journalists around it.
