    Well the PGA has to make a Major Stand here or Money will destroy this Fine Sport.
    They will not need to ban everyone because most of the Big time Players that really matter will not go on this Corrupt * Tour.
    One way around it is give the players who want this Greedy way of playing a way back next season or face a Life Ban.

    A life ban for choosing to go and play in a different tour? Would that also be the case if they leave to join the DP tour?

    The PGA have done the same thing to the European tour, gave bigger pots for players to play their events no different, now they want to ban players for playing an event, out with their control, hypocrite *, the same PGA who done fuckall when Augusta didn't allow black players to compete,

    PS This is all about Greed on a new level in Golf.
    There is easily enough money in Golf before this Corrupt Money Tour came about.
    And the Mega Selfish idiotic comments by those 2 English Golfers who never won a Major, pair of Mega Arseholes!!

    There’s easily enough money for some of them. Not all on the list however. A lot on the DP tour who have signed up won’t be as wealthy as you think.

    It’s like when the English complained about China offering players crazy wages.

    But that is Sport. You always get the Mega rich Superstars.
    But the vast majority in Sport are nowhere near that.
    But when already Very wealthy
    Golfers go for even more Wealth it is beyond Greedy.
    Like Rory said when it is just down to Money which what it is ,it will not end well.
    They are not going to this Corrupt Money Tour for the Standard and Fantastic competition , they going purely for Money.

    McIlroy swapped his brand purely for money. If he had stuck with Titelist he could and probably would have had more majors in the bag. He has a hard neck talking about players chasing money.

    I wonder if the PGA will pull the branding from Adidas Callaway cobra who feature DJ Mickelson, Bryson on there advertising boards, also if this league is not being televised will sponsors from said players start to go elsewhere

    Looking likely that Rickie Fowler will join also. Wouldn’t be surprised at all by this as he has tumbled down the world rankings. If enough players go, it won’t be long before Sky get involved in my opinion.

    Had a look at this on YouTube.
    Get rid of the stupid team logos and put their full names on the leader board

    Seems slowly but surely their all jumping ship.When it comes to the reason for it (money)its not much different from lads going from european tour to playing america.

    Will be interesting to see what the future holds for golf.If enough big names jump ship the pga will struggle with sponsorship and audience attendance and could possible become the secondary tour in the golf world.

    I think that crowd the show the boxing(DazN ? )will get involved in tv coverage and once that happens i think the pga will be in trouble as we will see more top player jump ship.

    The way to get rid of this Corrupt Money So called Tour is simply Ban them from the 4 Majors and the Ryder Cup.............If Money means so much to them, let the Selfish Greedy .unts drown in it!
