The PGA Tour-LIV Golf merger is still an interesting topic. Many golfers have publicly expressed their opinions and confirmed their satisfaction or dissatisfaction with the current situation on the golf scene. One of those who also decided to react is Shane Lowry.
Lowry was primarily reacting to the situation regarding Jay Monahan and the golfers. Namely, after the RBC Canadian Open, Monahan had a meeting with the golfers, where the golfers expressed their anger and demanded his resignation.
"I was like, right lads, let’s take a chill for a minute here,”-Lowry told RTE Sport’s Greg Allen, as quoted by golfmonthly.com "RBC have been a great sponsor to the Tour and to us. That’s not going to do anything for anybody doing that, so let’s just go out and do our jobs which is what we are here to do, and everything else will take care of itself."
Lowry did not want to "go deep" into the whole topic.
For him, the most important thing is to play golf, to focus on the future. He emphasized that many things related to the merger are unknown. It is assumed that more will be known in the coming period. "I stayed quiet enough last week.
I didn’t do much media because I actually have no answers to any questions because I just don’t know. We don’t really know what is going on anymore. We don’t know what deal the PGA Tour have signed up for.
I’ve said this all along, but the only thing you can do as a golfer is worry about yourself and play golf." It is obvious that both the PGA Tour and LIV Golf stand to gain a lot from this agreement. The two sides are well aware of how vital was is to reach an agreement of this kind. All of this will eventually have an effect on us; whether it creates satisfaction or dissatisfaction in the end.
