There are many who could not resist the LIV Golf offer. Big money is at stake and even the biggest names have decided to be part of that story. Speaking to the Stirkers and Radar Podcast, Andrew 'Beef' Johnston spoke about LIV Golf and their contracts; "From my perspective, I've got an injury now and I've been out for a year.
If you get offered £10m, how do you turn that down?' he said, as quoted by skysports. "I would have to seriously think about it because that changes my life and sets me up for the future. "It comes down to your values and why you're playing golf.
You'd have to seriously consider it [but] I'm not saying I would go."
Andrew 'Beef' Johnston on dilemmas
Johnston also spoke about the dilemmas that exist, and that it is not easy to make such a decision.
"In other worlds, how would you feel if someone came along and offered you X amount to do the same job. You'd have to consider it, right? Financially it's great, but that's the only reason you're going.
"When it comes down to your values and why you play golf, that's where it gets very difficult for someone like me, because you go, 'Hang on, I'll never play another major again' "If you can't play the majors and the big tournaments with all the history, people are going to miss that.
That's another question that goes through your head. However, playing in the biggest tournaments is a special joy and happiness for golf players. "The experiences that I've had at some of the majors have been amazing.
When you go and tee up at The Open or in the US, they are incredible and are memories that last forever. "If I'm fit and healthy for the next 10 years, I'd be playing majors, Ryder Cups hopefully, because you cannot buy that experience."
