The PGA Tour-LIV Golf merger caused a lot of reactions. Many people wondered if the news was true. Although the PGA Tour and LIV Golf have been in conflict for a long time, in the end, they decided that unity is currently the best option.

Many fans and golfers were shocked by this decision. The golfers were especially angry, considering that many did not know that such an agreement would be reached at all. Cameron Smith, one of the best at LIV Golf, thought it was a joke when he heard the information.

"I guess the first reaction was, I thought it was kind of a joke that had come out,"- he said, as quoted by! After that, Smith got a lot of questions about the merger. It seems that the Australian did not receive any information about the possibility of a merger.

"I really know as much as you guys know, to be honest. I haven't been told much at all. I'm just taking it as it goes along. I guess if anything comes up, I'll let you guys know. But for the moment, it's just trying to play the best golf I can and trying to win a U.S.


Golf and its future

It is difficult to predict what the future of golf might look like from this perspective. Everyone hopes that the golf world will experience better days and progress as we all expect. "I think there's still a lot of stuff to be worked out, and as time goes on we'll get to know more and more.

But there's definitely a lot of curious players on both sides as to what the future's going to look like." Cameron was under enormous pressure when he made the decision to become part of LIV Golf. Nevertheless, he considered that it was the right decision and did not have too many dilemmas.

"I'm very happy with where I'm at. I obviously made that decision for a few different reasons. It's too early to say yet with what's going to go on here. It's going to be interesting to see how the next kind of few months, even year, plays out."
