Trump Exposes Why He Enjoys LIV Golf.
Welcome back to Golf District. Here's some news for you Golf fans. Donald Trump has actually given his support to the Saudi Arabia-funded LIV Golf breakaway league and insists it is 'one of the very best things to have occurred in sports' regardless of a huge reaction from fans. The 45th President of the United States will host the most recent LIV tournament at his Bedminster, New Jersey course this weekend, and he has – perhaps unsurprisingly – been full of praise for the controversial trip.
While lots of have described LIV simply as a sports washing tool for Saudi Arabia, Trump rather thinks it has been an extremely favorable addition to golf – and he quickly batted away any debate surrounding Sept 2001 and the unfortunate events of US-based journalist Jamal Khashoggi. Speaking to the Wall Street Journal today, he said: 'I think LIV has actually been an excellent thing for Saudi Arabia, for the image of Saudi Arabia. 'I think it's going to be an extraordinary investment from that viewpoint, and that's better than lots of other things because you can't purchase that– even with billions of dollars. In associated news, Previous Masters champ Sergio Garcia, one of the more high-profile players to sign up with LIV Golf, has actually for now shelved plans to resign from the DP World Tour so that he can stay eligible for Ryder Cup competition.
