Viktor Hovland frequently comes up in discussions about LIV Golf. During an interview with Discovery's golf podcast, FORE!, Hovland revealed his dissatisfaction with the PGA Tour and emphasized that he understands individuals who are considering what alternatives are available to them. In today's time when the world of golf is experiencing great changes, many golfers have dilemmas.

“You actually have to think about what alternatives are out there. What is best for me? Maybe I can be a part of making a change in professional golf? It pushes things that way."- he said, as quoted by golfmonthly.com!

The PIF and the PGA Tour still haven't reached an agreement, and the deadline is December 31. Hovland believes that the current situation on the golf scene does not suit anyone. Both sides lose a lot in this situation. Hovland hopes that things could be resolved in the coming period.

“Now things have to happen. You can't have a split that goes that way, it only destroys the sport of golf. I hope that things will happen, but I don't know and neither does anyone else. I just hope that it will return to a certain normality in the future.”

Viktor Hovland on golf fans

The Norwegian golfer stressed that many fans may lose their love for golf after all. Looking at the current situation, it is difficult to be optimistic about the future of this sport. A large number of golf fans believe that a merger is the only solution.

 “It is important that the fans do not lose out on all this here. Without fans, there won't be as many tournaments for us to play, and then it won't be as cool to play either. We have to find a product that people want to look at."

What many think, Hovland decided to say: the PGA Tour is weakening, while LIV Golf is getting stronger.

"There is, of course, a division there. The PGA Tour is not as strong as before, that is a fact. The more people leave [for] LIV, the stronger they become and the weaker the PGA Tour becomes. I think it's crazy.”
