It was the news nobody saw coming, including the PGA Tour’s players.

In the statement, it reads that the PIF will have the exclusive right to invest in the new entity, which hasn’t been named yet.

The new commercial entity involving all three tours is said to “ensure a cohesive schedule of events that will be exciting for fans, sponsors and all stakeholders.”

It was news that took everyone by shock, including some of the best players in the world. As the story broke, players had their say.
