Davis Love III on the mixed event idea for the Presidents Cup

This year's President's Cup will be particularly interesting considering that the Internationals are missing many players. Most of them decided to become part of LIV Golf, which will be a huge problem for their team. There have been rumors that top women players could be added to the game.

Love III reacted to it; “Well, I love the Solheim Cup, and I love watching that. So they probably would not want us to come play in theirs,” Love said as quoted by golfdigest. “So I think the Presidents Cup stands on its own and has been great”.

A mixed team event appeared as an option, and many would like to see it again. “I would love to see, and it's talked about a lot, especially since everything's up for grabs right now in the tour schedule and the game of golf,” Love said.

“I would love to see the mixed team event come back. I would love to see some sort of event like this that was mixed teams. Billy Andrade and Brad Faxon did that in their CVS event and it was a lot of fun. So I like to see something different”.

Love III on LIV Golfers and Wentworth

Love III is not happy with the current situation in the golf world. The BMW PGA Championship at Wentworth is the main topic at the moment, with LIV Golfers eligible to play. The majority does not support it.

“We've got how many ever days until we actually tee off and -- or they are playing a great event this week [BMW PGA Championship] and the story is, you know, Billy Horschel and Jon Rahm wishing guys weren't there,” Love said.

“That's sad. I feel bad for all of us, really. But Trevor has a job to do, and that's to take 12 guys in there ready to play, and he's focused on that. We've talked about it a lot. I have to get these 12 guys that are dying to play for Team USA ready to play, and it will be a great show once Thursday starts.

So yeah, it's just a—Tim Finchem always used the word, it's a distraction. This is a big, big distraction away from what we really should be talking about”.
