The Northern Irish man Graeme McDowell has taken a hammering online for choosing to play in the LIV tournament in Saudi Arabia. The major winner revealed he resigned from the PGA 30 minutes before teeing off and has chosen to play in the LIV.
This was is going to rage on in golf and sports as where this money is coming from is questionable to say the least, see the 42 trying to explain his reasoning, if he just said it was for the money and be honest, I do think a lot more people would say fair enough…
🗣️ "I wanted to keep the moral high ground."

Preparing for the Saudi golf series launch, Graeme McDowell talked about golf being a force for good. I asked how the sovereign wealth funded series will help those who have been killed, oppressed and suffered by Saudi actions.https://t.co/lLxnCCQsqm pic.twitter.com/rtDaetqnG1

This is becoming a major problem in sport, when you look at Newcastle United now and we say Chelsea this season. The questions would go away anytime soon…
