This year’s Masters will be special in a number of ways, but there’s one thing that stands out above the rest. This major will bring together players from the LIV Golf Tour as well as players from the PGA Tour on the same course.
In the opinion of many, there is going to be a lot of conflict and animosity between the players. However, according to many golfers, it seems that such things are not realistic. As far as Patrick Reed is concerned, there will be no problems, and he is looking forward to taking on this new challenge.
“It’s one of those things, the media and the storylines are going to be obviously LIV versus PGA Tour and all that kind of stuff,” Reed said, as quoted by skysports.com “But really the majors, that’s all the guys that come in, top players in the world are going and playing against each other, no matter where they come from.
It doesn’t matter what tour they’re on or anything; it’s the top guys going and trying to play for one of the most coveted events in the world.” However, Reed did not hide his desire for LIV Golfers to be more successful at the majors.
“For us, at least for myself, it’s going to be business as usual going out and playing. Would I like to have LIV be up at the top? Of course. But really at the end of the day, it’s all of us going in there and just trying to play the best golf we can and be ready for the four biggest weeks of the year.”
Bubba Watson and his opinion
Bubba Watson is also optimistic that there will be no problems.
He believes that the media make the biggest noise in the whole story. “It’s only awkward in the media,” Watson said. “I’ve talked to people that are going to be there. I’m going to sign up with Jason Day and Cam Young in the par-three and some guys have already asked me to play some practice rounds.
The media is the only one that is pushing it. I have nothing against anybody. If you change jobs, I’m not mad at you.”
