The PGA Tour and LIV Golf’s merger madness

June 08, 2023

Happy Thursday!

Today’s episode of The GIST of It is all about the golf world. Co-hosts Ellen Hyslop and Steph Rotz unpack this week’s bombshell news that, despite condemning LIV Golf for over a year, the PGA and DB World Tours are now merging with the Saudi Arabian–backed Tour.

The gals dig into the uproar from players and fans alike, as well as the warranted claims of hypocrisy the PGA is now facing for this stunning reversal. It’s a major win for sportswashing, with yet-unknown ramifications for the sport and all those involved in it.
