Rory McIlroy: Split between PGA, LIV ‘not sustainable’

Rory McIlroy

The rift between the PGA Tour and LIV Golf is not sustainable and will not benefit anyone in the long term, Rory McIlroy told Golf Magazine on Tuesday.

“There needs to be a correction. I think what’s happening is not sustainable right now, so something needs to happen to try to bring it all back together so we can all move forward so we don’t have this division that’s sort of ongoing,” McIlroy said.

“They keep going down those different paths and I just don’t see how that benefits anyone in the long run. … I think (it’s) a shame for the overall game of golf.”

A potential merger between the two tours reportedly is ongoing, although the four-time major winner does not see that coming to fruition any time soon.

“It’s certainly divided and I think what the framework and June 6 tried to do was unify the game which ultimately needs to happen,” McIlroy said.

“We’re not there yet. We’re probably still quite a long ways from it, but I would hope that in the future that we can get there, unify the game and get the best players back together again.”

It is unclear when or whether the tour and the PIF will finalize their “framework agreement” from last June after a self-imposed Dec. 31 deadline came and went. In the meantime, LIV Golf has attracted the likes of Spaniard Jon Rahm.
