“Wish one of them would have 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 a reason; golf progress, new experience, etc. Most people think that these are ridiculous reasons and that the main motive is money.

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

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

“When it first happened and when it came out, guys, they’re going to do what they want to do, and yeah, do I wish they wouldn’t have, but they’re entitled to their own opinion and decision and so be it kind of thing.”

Justin Thomas on the main motive

Justin Thomas believes that players should be honest with themselves, and then with others, that money is their main motive. “I just, to be perfectly honest, I just wish one of them would have the balls to say I’m doing this for the money.

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

There is a lot of talk about the various lawsuits and disputes that prevail on both sides. “I heard someone that brought up a good point is they’re saying that I’m sure at some point, you know, some sort of lawsuits will be going and if any of those guys that left to go play the other tour sue the [PGA] Tour, they’re suing me, they’re suing Rory, they’re suing Tiger, they’re suing every single one of us that they’ve looked in the face,” Thomas said.

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