Rory McIlroy's positive statements regarding LIV Golf, and his remorse for his earlier statements, received a great response from LIV Golf players and executives. Many see the Northern Irishman's statements as a positive thing for everyone, with many fantasizing about golf moving in the right direction. Phil Mickelson, one of those who criticized the PGA Tour, responded to McIlroy's statements via social media, and is happy that Rory was able to see the positives of this Tour.

"This quote and the many others made today by Rory probably weren’t easy to say. Let’s not use this as an opportunity to pile on. Rather, It’s time for me and others to let go of our hostilities and work towards a positive future."- Mickelson wrote on X!

Phil Mickelson on Jon Rahm

Mickelson believes that Jon Rahm joining LIV Golf was perhaps the crucial thing for many to realize how wrong they are criticizing LIV Golf. The PGA Tour-PIF deal gives optimism that the conflict on the golf scene will finally end, and that we will have a chance to watch the best golfers at major tournaments.

"Rahms’ signing is turning into a bridge to bring both sides together,as evidenced by the many comments today and a month ago about changing the rules for the Ryder Cup so Jon and others can play, so let’s use it as such. Until an agreement is reached it will be business as usual for both sides but hopefully without the needless disdain."

Rumors are already circulating about the future of this sport, and what the coming days could bring. There is growing impatience among golf fans who want the agreement between the PGA Tour and the PIF to be finalized as soon as possible. At this moment, the most important thing is to be patient and hope for the best. In moments when chaos reigns on the golf scene, any 'critical' statement can further deepen the conflict and create even bigger problems.
