“Boy, news can be wrong sometimes. Yeah, there is a player meeting, but that’s all I can tell you about that,” Rahm said. “There’s also a PAC meeting. I don’t know if on the news they were talking about the PAC meeting or no. … I don’t know what to tell you. I don’t have Tiger’s phone number, so I can’t tell you if he’s coming or not,” Rahm said according to Yahoo Sports.

“Well, I’ve heard Tiger is the new commissioner, right?” Cantlay quipped. “That’s what everyone has been saying. I’m going to go to the meeting. I’m going to listen to what it’s all about, and I’ll probably have more for you after.” The mystery surrounding the meet has definitely taken the golf world by storm for the moment, as fans are waiting for the PGA Tour to make a move on the delicate situation.
