Four-time PGA Tour winner Max Homa has made his stance on the state of the golfing world right now and its ever-evolving situation with the fight with the LIV Golf Invitational Series and the PGA Tour on his appearance on the No Laying Up Podcast this week. Homa, who repeated his win of the Wells Fargo Championship in May has explained that while he’s made some of his views regarding his views about the Series via Twitter, never properly.
He used this as an opportunity to fully lay out his opinion on the podcast and air it out as he wants to. The Tour only brings a small number of players in for pre-tournament press conferences and Homa was not the list of those who did so, he said that he’s glad to have the opportunity to do so. He also said that it shouldn’t all fall on Rory McIlroy to be the Tour’s main defender.
“You can buy a Tour for sure”
“He should not have to do this week in and week out,” Homa said. “He’s doing an amazing job… I think we can all help, but we aren’t in a position to do so”. Speaking on No Laying Up, he spoke freely and openly. “I know money comes with a lot of that, but I never dreamt of money”. He continued, “And I mean that sincerely. That was never the motivating factor. And I think that it is a big part of this whole thing”
“You can buy a tour for sure, but you can’t buy my goals and my dreams”. Homa agreed that the money being thrown around via purses and to commit players to the LIV Golf Invitational was ‘unthinkable’, but also argued and said that the players on the PGA Tour and the DP World Tour are not paid peanuts either.
“There’s this argument now that it’s playing for money or playing for trophies, and I can call bullshit I just don’t know if there’s an amount of money at this moment, this week, that will get me to quit the PGA Tour and I wouldn’t get to play the President’s Cup.”
