Lawyer Larry Klayman is getting closer to talking to Tiger Woods and Rory McIlroy for a lawsuit against the PGA Tour. He's saying that nobody is above the law. Even though the LIV Golf League and the PGA Tour settled their issues, Klayman's case against the Tour is still going on in the Palm Beach County court. This all started back in June 2022.

Klayman is saying that the PGA Tour and the DP World Tour tried to stop the new LIV Golf Tour and its players. He's accusing them of hurting golf fans in Florida. Now, the court has told Woods to speak by January 30 and McIlroy by February 23.

Woods was accused of avoiding a subpoena, and McIlroy got his during his break, which made him angry. This made a situation with Patrick Reed a while back.

Klayman's group reaction

Klayman's group, Freedom Watch, says that Woods and McIlroy trying to dodge talking in court makes it seem like they're guilty. They believe that when Woods and McIlroy speak in court, it'll show how they supported the PGA Tour against the new golf league. They think they tried to hurt the LIV Golf Tour and its players. Many are impatiently waiting for the reaction of Woods and McIlroy if there would be one at all.

They're also saying that the PGA Tour suspended a top golfer, Jon Rahm, just because he wanted to play in the LIV Tour. This is another example of how they're trying to stop the new league. Jon Rahm joining LIV Golf shocked golf fans.

It seems that we will not experience peace on the golf scene anytime soon, considering that with the arrival of LIV Golf, things have become completely chaotic. Many do not have optimism that things will get better, considering that things like this deepen the already deep conflicts on the golf scene. Time will best show the outcome and what we can expect.
