LIV Golfers will have the opportunity to earn points at the Abu Dhabi HSBC Championship, which is part of the DP World Tour. In spite of this, there are many golfers who oppose the changes proposed by the OWGR, and one of them is Ian Poulter.
According to him, the World Rankings are not an accurate representation of the quality of a golfer, and it has spoiled the game in a lot of ways. “Look where we are today and how many points we play for here. Look at how many top-20 players were here last year.
Look at how many are here this year. We all know that the world rankings are not reflective of the world rankings. Every week that they go past and keep clicking, they become more and more obsolete”. – he said, as quoted by golfmonthly.com
Ian Poulter and majors
Ian Poulter is fully aware of how much things have changed when comparing the way they were a few years ago.
There has been a lot of excitement surrounding LIV Golf, but it has also created a lot of problems for the industry. The desire of every player is to perform at the majors, and it can be very frustrating when you do not get to participate in that process.
“How can not being in the Majors not bother me? Do I want to play in every one of them? Of course I do. That’s my road to the Ryder Cup. But I’m not in. So my only road to get in is to play in world ranking tournaments”.
Reporters wondered if Ian Poulter would accept a Ryder Cup place. “We’ll see. Let’s see if we get to Sunday holding a trophy. And let’s see how everything plays out. Let’s take it week by week”. Interesting things on the golf scene.. This story will take a long time.
