Davis Love III threatened a boycott if LIV golfers received a favorable ruling from the courts and were allowed to tee it up beside the one-time major winner.
“If LIV guys sue and are allowed are allowed to play on the PGA Tour, the players are enough fed up with it,” said Love, ahead of the Wyndham Championship.
“We understand that we make the rules on the PGA Tour, and the commissioners enforcing our rules, we don’t want those guys playing and coming and cherry picking our tournaments.
“We [the tour players] hold all the cards, not Jay [Monahan], not Seth Waugh, or Mike Whan, they don’t hold all the cards. We hold all the cards.
“If we say no, we support the rules, we don’t want those guys playing. We don’t care what the courts say. Our only really – the nuclear – option, is to say fine, if they have to play in our events, we just won’t play.”
Well, the golfer who has been called “The Clown in Clown Shoes” and the Sea Island Gangster, missed the cut at the Wyndham Championship.
After an opening-round 70, Love shot 74 to finish 4-over par and punch his ticket home to the rough and tumble streets of Sea Island, Georgia.
