Good morning, Sports fans!   Davey Mac here with a big-time Sports Report for ya!   NBA & NHL finals!   Damar Hamlin!   Aaron Judge update!   And more!    But first!

We’ve got breaking news from the world of golf as it was shockingly announced yesterday the PGA Tour is merging with the Saudi Arabian-backed LIV Golf.   Apparently PGA players were not consulted…and some players and PGA fans are not happy.   PGA commissioner Jay Monahan apparently made the decision without consulting any of the players and the players are now ticked off.

Meanwhile, 9/11 Families United, a coalition of families and survivors of the 2001 terrorist attacks, said they are “shocked and deeply offended” by the PGA’s decision.   They are critical of Monahan and say that he betrayed their loved ones’ memories.   Many of the terrorists on 9/11 came from Saudi Arabia (who sponsors the LIV tour).

This video of Monahan certainly doesn’t help things…



And Rory McIlroy and Tiger Woods certainly got thrown under the bus as they blasted LIV players who left and stood up for the PGA tour whenever they were asked.   Rory turned down $500 million to join the LIV tour…and Tiger rejected an $800 million offer!   Both said it was the right thing to do to stick with the PGA.   Now, apparently, they feel sold out by Monahan.   Either way…this is gonna be a fascinating issue going forward!   We’ll stay on top of this story!
