Tiger Woods' former coach Hank Haney had some interesting statements via Twitter. Haney first posted an old picture of McIlroy in which Rory makes an interesting hand gesture indicating money. Haney emphasized that LIV Golf is a great place for players, and believes that if the PGA and LIV Golf are creating problems for each other, they should find a way to co-exist.
“Rory has all the money anyone could ever hope for,” he wrote. “LIV Golf has been great for the players that left and for the players that stayed. I think it remains to be seen whether it’s good or bad for the game but if that’s a concern then everyone needs to figure out how to co-exist”.
Hank Haney on LIV Golf and PGA Tour
Haney made an interesting comparison between the PGA Tour and LIV Golf. Haney seems to be a big fan of the tour sponsored by Saudi Arabia. It is interesting how his statements will affect other players and leaders of the Tour.
“I love how if you’re a fan of the PGA Tour but you don’t think everything is great about it and if you think competition makes everyone better and you think it’s good that players make a lot of money, then people call you a lot of bad things, pretty amazing,” he added.
Haney also commented on McIlroy and his drop that was rewarded on the 18th, but only after his swin was impeded by a grandstand. Certain things are not clear to Haney. “Not that it would have mattered but I don’t get it,” he wrote.
“Rory’s ball was still behind his marker twice after dropping it and twice after placing it and then he got to place it again. Looked like you can just keep placing it until you have the ball on a tee”. LIV Golf and the PGA Tour will be in contention for a long time.
