The arrival of LIV Golf on the big stage caused intense emotions and reactions. Mostly the reactions were negative, but with time, it seems that many are starting to favor LIV Golf and their project. Certain decisions of Jay Monahan, commissioner of the PGA Tour, as well as his associates, caused anger among golfers and fans of this sport. 

Many believe that Monahan could have made different decisions and prevented the current upheaval on the golf scene and the conflict that has been going on for more than a year. Veteran PGA Tour pro Kevin Kisner is one of those who just talked about it. Kisner was one of those who did not expect that LIV Golf could do great things, but he was surprised by the power that they showed.

"From the get-go we were led down a road and led to believe that LIV wasn't going to take off.

That's the feeling all of us had—and then "Bam!" All of a sudden, they did."- he said, as quoted by golfmagic.com

Kisner and his advice to Monahan

Kisner had already advised Monahan, just like many others, to talk to the PIF governor; Yasir Al-Rumayyan.

This happened much earlier than LIV Golf appeared. Kisner understands that LIV Golf has great power, and that hardly anyone can prevent them from achieving their goals. All that remains is to accept things as they are. 

"Now they're here and they have stayed in power, because they have more money than anybody.

So I think guys are just tired of it. Nobody really cares anymore, honestly. They want it to be constant. They want our future to be figured out, and right now, it's very uncertain."

Rory McIlroy is also one of the examples that there is nothing left but to accept LIV Golf. Although he was one of the biggest critics of LIV Golf, Rory McIlroy changed his attitude over time, and realized that LIV Golf could dominate for years ahead of us.
