The news regarding the merge of PGA Tour and LIV Golf has left almost everyone stunned. With almost two weeks gone since this unlikely development, some are still trying to come to terms. The two tours who kept on bickering at each other constantly, suddenly decided to bring an end to this stuff.

According to Golf Channel, the PGA Tour is now looking to regain the trust of its members. The highly reputed tour is trying to ensure the message to the players that they will control the majority of the operations. It is widely been reported that the PGA Tour will have the lead after an agreement has been reached.

Though it has not been officially confirmed yet, reports suggest that the “new entity” will be named NewCo. The Public Investment Fund (PIF) will be making a minor investment into this newly formed group. The tour will later have the right to decline further investments if they feel so. However, any of these changes are likely to take place after the current schedule concludes.
