“I wish one of them had the ba**s to say..”

LIV Golf has created a real problem in the world of golf. Many players have decided to perform at LIV Golf and they have stated as their reason; golf progress, new experience, etc. Most people think these are ridiculous reasons and the main motive is money.

Justin Thomas talked about it in an interview for the No Laying Up podcast; “It’s hard,” Thomas said, as quoted by nytimes. “And I never thought I’d be lying in bed so many nights thinking about this fucking tour and what’s going on and all that.”

“I go back and forth on how I should be involved, how involved I shouldn’t be, what I should say, what I shouldn’t say, what I want to say and what I know that I can’t say and come back and as a result of all these different things,” Thomas said on the podcast.

“When it first came in and when it came out, guys, they’re gonna do what they want to do, and yeah, would I wish they didn’t, but they are entitled to their own opinion and decision and so let it be the kind of thing.”

Justin Thomas on the main motif

Justin Thomas believes players need to be honest with themselves, and then with others, that money is their main motivation. “To be perfectly honest, I just wish one of them had the guts to say I’m doing this for the money.

Like, personally, I would gain a lot more respect for that. But it’s just that the more players talk and say it’s for the betterment of the game, the more agitated and irritated I get about it.”

Much is said about the various lawsuits and disputes prevailing on both sides. “I heard someone who brought up a good point is that he said I’m sure at some point, you know, some kind of trial is going to take place and if one of these guy who left to play the other tour is chasing the [PGA] Tower, they’re chasing me, they’re chasing Rory, they’re chasing Tiger, they’re chasing every single one of us they’ve looked in the face,” Thomas said.

“So for me, that’s where a bit of the betrayal and the upsetting, sad feelings come from.”
