Paul Casey is another one who has confirmed his arrival on the LIV Golf Tour. With this move, he will certainly cause anger among some, but he was aware of his decision, and it seems that this is what he wanted. LIV Golf and CEO Greg Norman are happy about the arrival of such a great player.
This will be good for the status of LIV Golf, but may also deepen the conflict between LIV Golf and others. "LIV Golf continues to attract the best players in the sport as it builds increasingly competitive fields with each event," LIV Golf chief executive Greg Norman said, as quoted by skysports.
"Paul Casey adds to the growing list of top 50 golfers who are excited to be part of an innovative and entertaining format that is creating something new for golf. "His proven track record on a global stage adds another exciting piece to the competition as we prepare for Bedminster."
Paul Casey made similar decision
Casey has already made similar decisions before, for example when he opted for the inaugural Saudi International on the European Tour in 2019. "This is not a decision I've taken lightly," Casey said for PA Media two years ago.
"I wasn't comfortable going in the past, but I have always been open-minded and willing to learn. I believe sport has the power to affect change. I've listened to the Saudis' commitment to this and their vision for the future.
Casey obviously thinks this is the best decision for him. We still don't know the motives of his decision, but we can only guess. In any case, the decision is final and LIV Golf could be a great thing. "It is always better to include rather than exclude when eliciting change, thus I hope my participation will make a difference and I am looking forward to seeing these changes in person."
