- PGA Tour purses have increased, as will no-cut events
- Tour commissioner says no way back for LIV players
While a staunch opponent of the LIV Golf tour, Rory McIlroy has admitted the emergence of the rebel circuit has helped players throughout the sport. The Northern Irishman believes “antiquated” elements of the PGA Tour have been updated on direct account of LIV.
The PGA Tour has announced a raft of changes for 2024, including the introduction of a number of limited‑field no-cut events. Asked how much of this alteration is down to the LIV threat, McIlroy replied: “A lot of it. I’m not going to sit here and lie. I think the emergence of LIV or the emergence of a competitor to the PGA Tour has benefited everyone that plays elite professional golf.
