‘We hold all the cards’: PGA Tour legend threatens boycott over LIV

A frustrated President's Cup captain hinted players will strike if LIV golfers succeed in legal proceedings
 

With a confident Bryson DeChambeau claiming the PGA Tour will overturn its ban on LIV golfers, Davis Love III has fired back suggesting a player boycott will unfold should the rebels be allowed to return to the circuit.

Players who defected to the breakaway series were met with indefinite bans by the PGA Tour over their controversial switch, but may be allowed back should they prevail in potential legal proceedings.

Speaking ahead of the Wyndham Championship, Love suggested not only does he expect LIV’s defectors to sue the PGA Tour over their suspensions, but threatened a major player boycott if they succeed and are allowed to feature on the circuit once again.

“If LIV guys sue, and are allowed are allowed to play on the PGA Tour, the players are enough fed up with it,” Love said. “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 hold all the cards, not [PGA Tour commissioner] Jay [Monahan], not [PGA of America CEO] Seth Waugh, or [USGA CEO] 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.”
