The Super Bowl of golf The idea was launched a few days ago by the Flushing It Twitter account. A Ryder Cup match between two teams, one made up of the best players from LIV Golf, the other from those on the Pga Tour, broadcast on Netflix.
Captains, of course, Phil Mickelson and Tiger Woods. Greg Norman liked the proposal a lot, and he immediately made it up to him. He posted a poll on Instagram to ask for the opinion of fans, later revealing the result: “Around 10,000 fans responded.
Carry on the Super Bowl of goals” (91% voted yes). While the chances of that happening are nil, Phil MIckelson also seems keen on the idea: “It seems perfect to me but we would completely dominate them and it would end so quickly that the TV would have to find a way to fill an hour of dead time” "That's why it won't happen this time." After a period of news blackout, Mickelson is getting busy with the media.
It is evident that the most important obstacle for a hypothetical Ryder Cup PGA Tour-LIV Golf is the lawsuit pending between the players banned from the US Tour and the Tour itself. Over time, most of the players withdrew from the judgment, but the LIV itself was formed alongside the survivors.
And it was even one of the fans who answered the survey to point this out to Norman: “Maybe you might need to drop the lawsuit first”. In fact, playing it on the golf course could be an alternative way to resolve the dispute.
And we would also have fun watching the match-plays… Eldrick Tont Woods (born December 30, 1975), better known as Tiger Woods, is an American golfer. Considered among the best golfers of all time, as well as the best of the modern era, in his more than twenty-year career he won 110 professional tournaments, including 15 majors, making him the most successful player in history ; held the number one position in the OWG world rankings for a total of 683 weeks, 281 of which were consecutive weeks (from June 12, 2005 to October 30, 2010), and is the only golfer to have won all four majors in the modern era within a single year (between 2000 and 2001).
In 2014, he became the first sportsman in the world to surpass one billion dollars in earnings from wins and sponsorships. In 2019, US President Donald Trump awarded him the Presidential Medal of Freedom, the highest civilian honor in the United States of America.
