As I have often said, our job is to cover the golf tournament. We are not going to treat golfers who have played on the LIV Tour differently than the other golfer. » Last December, Fred Riley, president of the Augusta National Golf Club, explained that he did not want to exclude LIV players from the tournament even if he regretted the creation of the circuit financed by the Public Investment Fund of Saudi Arabia.
