One of the players on the PGA Tour, James Hahn, is another golfer who is not in agreement with the changes that are being introduced by the PGA in 2024. There was a large number of golfers who chose to publicly rebel against such things, while there was also a small number of golfers who supported such changes.
“I mean, I hate them,” Hahn said for Golfweek, as quoted by golfmonthly.com “I’m gonna say exactly what 99.99 percent of fans said about players leaving for the LIV Tour. If our players just said, ‘We’re doing this for the money,’ I would have a lot more respect for them.
But how they’re covering up what they’re doing and trying to make it a thing about sponsors and fans and saving opposite-field events. I think that’s all BS. All the big names that are talking about this ‘new product,’ if you just came out and said, ‘Hey, we’re doing this for the money,’ they want more guaranteed money and this is another way to funnel more money to the top players in the world, I’d have a lot more respect for them.”
James Hahn on money
The main motive for the changes, according to Hahn, is the big money that top golfers will be able to earn through the changes.
“Right now, they’re just covering their a** and saying everything that the PGA Tour basically has trained them to say, has taught them to say and try to make it not about money when everyone knows 100 percent it’s about more guaranteed money being funneled to the top players in the world.
We’ve been talking about money for the last two years and for them not to say that that’s not the No. 1 reason why they’re making these changes —it’s very, very hypocritical”.
