    There's no indication that any revenue stream (tickets/TV advertising/etc) will cover their expense.
    They are in it for other reasons. Probably to burnish their image on the world stage; or to provide entertainment for their citizens (like a FI race or soccer).

    They've got billions of dollars from the world for us to drive our cars. They are just playing with a fraction of it.
    I think this is more accurate. I really don’t think the saudis care about getting rid of the pga tour or not. That was probably more Norman’s intention

    Wanna know why great players are going over to LIV?
    Money and more time off.

    Scottie Scheffler at his most relatable in the interview room at the Masters.

    I bet he's pretty satisfied.

    The Reporter that won the Master's media lottery has never played a round of golf in her life. Her first ever round will be at Augusta. Should we set the over/under at 250 strokes?

    Scheffler is ridiculous right now. Worst round this year has been even, and he’s made over 12 mil in 30 days beating his competition. Imagine that.

    I jokingly offered my two most valuable employees triple their salary and I'd cut their hours in half. They said they'd be interested.

    LIV is not a normal business model. 99.9% of companies actually want and need to make a profit. They have owners and investors that want and need to make a profit. LIV is just spending oil money and some these guys are taking advantage of it.

    Sounds a lot like NIL.
