While it was once intriguing and exciting in its own way, the ongoing LIV Golf vs PGA Tour feud is getting increasingly tiresome.
However, Rory McIlroy, the poster boy for the PGA Tour, has spoken positively about reaching a compromise with the LIV Golf Tour.
The often hard-line McIlroy is perhaps realising that LIV is here for the foreseeable future, and might be wary of the threat of further defects from the PGA Tour to LIV Golf.
Speaking to Golf & Tourismo, McIlroy was adamant that a compromise between the two tours must be reached as soon as possible.
I believe there is no more time to waste. PGA Tour and LIV will have to find a compromise and speak for the sake of our sport. I don’t know when this can happen, certainly not tomorrow, but of course we will have to find an agreement.
“Golf is a small reality, it is not football where inside it large worlds such as Serie A, the Champions League, FIFA or UEFA coexist with each other. So, even more so, we need to stick together and find a way to ensure that in the future there are no splits like the one we are witnessing today.”
PGA Tour vs LIV Golf
LIV Golf CEO Greg Norman has said before that he willing to find common ground with the PGA Tour, but naturally his rivals have not been quick to 'break bread', after many of its top stars have defected to LIV.
"That is what has disappointed me the most. There was always room - always, always, always room - and there is still room for them to sit down and understand what we have and what this is all about.
"I quite honestly think the ball is in their court; it's not in ours. We've tried. We've tried on numerous occasions, not just me personally but before I even came on board.
"We've had high up people reach out to try and explain it to them. We've extended an inclusion into the equity side of things where everybody would be the benefactors, not just the players, Every institution would be a benefactor. LIV is definitely here to stay. We are not going anywhere."
