Most of the headlines look set to stay on the PGA Tour as LIV Golf tries to lure top players

Rory McIlroy’s victory at the RBC Canadian Open came at a good time for the PGA Tour and its beleaguered commissioner Jay Monaghan.

Just a day before McIlroy successfully defended his title at the Canadian Open for $1.566 million, the upstart LIV Tour won its maiden title in Charles Schwarzel, South Africa, but his payday was only better than McIlroy’s. Yi opened the exhibition with a $4.75 million winning 54-hole shotgun.

While the LIV event isn’t covered by any TV network or cable channel, it does get more publicity than it clearly deserves for the quality of golf it showcases.
