The future of LIV Golf is an indispensable topic in the golf scene. LIV Golf has been doing great things since its creation, although many are not big fans of this Tour. The question arises; What future awaits this Tour, and can it really compete with the PGA Tour? According to Ian Poulter, LIV Golf will have a bright future and will continue with its ideas in the years ahead.

In an interview with the Telegraph's James Corrigan, Poulter commented on the future of LIV Golf and revealed what Saudi Public Investment Fund (PIF) governor Yasir Al-Rumayyan told him. "I talked to his Excellency last week [at the LIV event in Jeddah].

He told me, never mind 2024, 2025 – LIV will go and on."- Poulter said, as quoted by golfmagic.com!

Poulter is also excited about the future of LIV Golf. When you hear such words from PIF leaders, then you really have reason to be optimistic.

Yasir Al-Rumayyan is passionate and believes that LIV will progress month by month. Ian has emphasized many times so far that he is happy to have chosen LIV Golf, and that he is honored to play on such a prestigious Tour. "I was there and talked to him, and he is passionate as he was at the very beginning in all this.

He loves the concept, loves how it’s progressing and the impact it’s made and is making. You see it throughout the sports world, not only in golf." Many are wondering what the PGA Tour-LIV Golf merger will mean for golf and whether it will change much.

Greg Norman himself stated a few days ago that he doesn't know what a merger could bring. On the other hand, he is optimistic that LIV Golf will continue at the same pace in the future, and show how serious they are in their intentions. Time will tell best what goals LIV wants to achieve and how much they can really achieve.
