‘Certainly for the younger guys it just seems a massive risk. I can maybe make sense of it for the guys that are getting to the latter stages of their career.

‘I don’t think that’s what a rival golf league is really going to want, is it? They don’t want some sort of league that’s like a pre-Champions Tour.

‘I understand the financial part of it for guys that are later on in their career. You look at the people that have already said no — (Jon) Rahm, number one in the world, Collin Morikawa, myself.

‘Like you’ve got the top players in the world are saying no, so that has to tell you something.’
