Branden Grace on the reasons for playing at LIV Golf and the future of the tournament

Branden Grace is one of the players who joined LIV Golf. He revealed the main reasons for his decision and seems happy with his decision. "Some of us want to play less, that is what we ultimately wanted to do," Grace told Sky Sports. "I play 33 tournaments a year normally, if I can get it down to 25 tournaments a year it's amazing.

I get to spend more time with the family and things like that. I think it's necessary and I think it's only going to get bigger and better, so why not?"

World Ranking Status

LIV Golf wants world ranking status.

If that doesn't happen, LIV Golfers will have big problems and will fall in the rankings. Grace talked about some options. He is optimistic about the future of LIV Golf. "There is some qualification criteria that is also being met, guys winning the Sunshine Tour Order of Merit, winning the Asia Tour Order of Merit," Grace said.

"There are guys playing on the Asian Tour which have a chance to qualify for those events. If you're lying top three/top four you get into these events for a certain amount of time until you have to play well on those again to qualify for the next ones.

Then you have the guys that obviously you need to get into those certain qualification criteria to be able to start something like this. You look at WGC and all of that sort of things, limited field events, no cuts, and as far as I know there's no such thing saying it needs to be 72 holes.

So when you think about things like that, I know it's the beginning of it but sooner or later we're going to get there." LIV Golfers do not give up their goals and firmly believe in the success of the competition supported by Saudi Arabia.
