LIV Golf players at The Open: how much they all won
A total of 19 LIV Golf players took part in the 150th Open Championship at St Andrews.
The R&A must have been nervous after several of the Rebel players forced each other into fights at various times during the historic major.
It’s fair to say that Rory McIlroy was the favorite. But even a crowd of over 50,000 fans couldn’t get the Northern Irishman across the line.
Earlier last week, R&A chief executive Martin Slumbers called LIV Golf “not credible”, saying the league was “not merit-based”.
Phil Mickelson is the highest-profile LIV golfer to win at the Old Course. Lefty ended up missing the cut.
It was probably his last Open at St Andrews and his (perhaps) last step on the 18th over the Swilcan Bridge was very different to Tiger’s.
The 52-year-old didn’t stop as he crossed the iconic bridge and the stands were mostly empty, barely offering a ripple of applause.
Mickelson grew frustrated with questions from LIV Golf last week, urging a reporter to “let it go” when asked why he didn’t attend the Champions Dinner.
“I couldn’t be happier,” Lefty said. Mickelson later declined to do any further media interviews.
Ian Poulter, too, was also frustrated with questions about being booed. “I think I had a great reception,” he said.
Yet aside from a few stories, the topic of LIV Golf hasn’t dominated discussions as we celebrated golf’s oldest major.
Although it looks like the winner, Cameron Smith, could soon join the Saudi-backed series judging by this awkward exchange.
