After the breakaway tour came onto the scene, the European-based DP World Tour and PGA strengthened that commitment further with the announcement of extending that alliance through to 2035.
Part of that partnership saw the Americans increasing their share of European Tour Productions from 15 per cent to 40 percent.
Prize money has also increased and DP World Tour chief executive Keith Pelley has suggested they now want to look at elevating national opens, mirroring the changes announced by the PGA Tour.
Pelley said in June the move would significantly enhance "the meritocracy that has served the professional game on both sides of the Atlantic for more than 50 years".
It's also clear that some DP World Tour members stand to benefit more than others as a result of this alliance.
From the start of next year, the top 10 in the rankings - which was re-named this week - will earn a PGA Tour card for the following year.
Essentially, some view this as the DP World Tour becoming a feeder circuit. This move baffled Lee Westwood. It has been seen by some as the DP World Tour just simply giving away their best players.
Pelley insists this is not the case.
McGinley was asked about this topic by the Times of London.
In response to the query that DP World Tour chiefs have "ceded too much power to the PGA Tour", he said:
It should be noted that McGinley, 55, was appointed to the DP World Tour's board of directors in 2016.
He has always been outspoken on the topic of LIV Golf.
