World ranking, now the word to LIV Golf. The second Major of the year has rekindled the never dormant discussion regarding the accreditation of LIV Golf competitions for the purpose of obtaining World Ranking points. On the Saudi League front, the most widespread attitude is that of the newfound distrust in the absolute value of the OWGR, in light of the slow but inexorable descent of LIV players in the World Ranking.
Last in order of time to express the concept, Bryson DeChambeau, who defined the OWGR "inaccurate" and "obsolete".
Greg Norman, statements
As far as the OWGR Board is concerned, however, we were left with a twist, i.e. with three of its members who opted out of the accreditation resolution procedure, On the sidelines of the PGA Championship, Seth Waugh, CEO of the PGA of America, as well as a member of the OWGR Board, made some clarifications.
As reported by the Times, Waugh said that, following a series of discussions, which he described as constructive, the Board is now awaiting a series of responses from LIV executives. “There are some aspects of their structure that work without problems, but there are others, however fundamental, that are not so linear” “For example, there is a potential conflict related to the topic of teams, it is more precisely on the access criteria” “How do you get admitted or excluded?” “They received our reply weeks ago, we have not heard from them since” “They are convinced, mistakenly, that this procedure will be quick.
But it never was" “Any accreditation request took more than a year to process, as far as I know, and now I am unable to give a timeline, as they (LIV, NDR) have not yet responded” "They may have to fix some things, but it's not clear if that's their intention to do so." So, word goes to Greg Norman and his staff for the ranking.
