The future of golf remains uncertain. The merger between PGA along with DP World Tour and LIV Golf has sparked up a few unanswered questions. The deal would later be testified before the US Senate, speaking volumes about the development. As usual, many players have no idea what will happen next. World number one Scottie Scheffler is also one of those worried about the future.

The PGA Tour was heavily slammed for keeping their top players in the dark. Several names then later called out the tour and expressed their disappointment. The tour later informed that the top players will be involved in the final approval talk. Scheffler though is concerned about the upcoming days over the lack of details among the players.

As a player on Tour, we still don’t really have a lot of clarity as to what’s going on, and that’s a bit worrisome,” Scheffler said. He added how the tour said before the US Senate that they are a player-run organization, but they still do not have any information. “We are not involved in any of the discussions,” the top golfer added. He though claimed that he has no animosity against those who left for the LIV league.

This whole scenario of the merger came to fruition after the formation of the LIV league. Golf fans were left bewildered when the breakaway tour was announced. This led to an internal war among players as several relationships were severed. One of the famous ones was the break between Rory McIlroy and Sergio Garcia. The duo has rekindled their friendship now though. However, Scheffler had no such issues with any players.

When all those guys left, I didn’t have any hard feelings for anybody,” he said in his response. Scheffler explained how it was none of his business to stop players from going after money and playing there. “None of my relationships were really fractured by them going to LIV,” he added. Before the merger was announced, there had been rumors about him going on the rival tour. Scheffler though decided to stick with the PGA.

While like all others Scheffler has to wait for the official announcement from the tour. Commissioner Jay Monahan is stated to return from his leave on July 17. His return could provide some much-needed answers. The tour is preparing for the Scottish Open this weekend before heading to the Royal Liverpool for the prestigious Open championship.
