This may be a good place to start a discussion pertaining to LIV:
This week’s action was TREMENDOUS. The product/broadcast is quick, constantly updating, engaging, etc. I thoroughly enjoyed LIV Boston’s lack of advertising as well.
The team format added much more intrigue, than the PGA’s individual format only. It seemed as if every shot mattered this week for a number of players for huge $.
Enjoyed LIV Boston as much if not more than the TOUR Championship.
Clearly, LIV Golf is one of the BEST things to ever happen for the player’s/fans of the game. The PGA tour’s response has been of benefit to all the players who chose to stay with tour. LIV’s actions as a business entity, have been to promote the game with players from all nations/religions,demographics etc. Globally, at the moment, they have much more appeal to me than the PGA tour. They are traveling the globe, taking the game to new, foreign markets. At the same time, appealing to a much younger fan base with music, broadcast style, etc.
Unfortunately, American TV/media (mainly but not limited to Golf channel/nbc/cbs) and their partner companies have maintained a Saudi Arabian 9/11 smear campaign against the fund’s managers. US media is claiming that their is a link between 9/11 attacks and Saudi Wealth Fund. I doubt the veracity of anyone associated with LIV playing an EFFECTUAL role in 9/11 horrors/tragedies.
Also, there haven’t been any Golf channel highlights I’ve seen showing anything >10 seconds of actual visual LIV highlights/footage. Crazy really, again such a biased view is an unfortunate reality of an individual’s American cable media access.
There is much more to this discussion. Any other thoughts/idea’s/opinions?
Hope everyone is in good health
