A LIV Golf official has refused to speculate on whether the proposed framework agreement between the PGA Tour and PIF will be completed.
Gary Davidson is the rival league's interim chief operating officer. He replaced Atul Khosla towards the end of 2022.
Khosla was said to have been involved in a furious exchange with LIV Golf supremo Yasir Al-Rumayyan before his abrupt exit.
The pair were previously described by Telegraph Sport as arguing during last year's $50m team championship at Trump National Doral in Miami.
At the time LIV Golf had lodged an antitrust claim against the tour and were fighting the subsequent counter claim.
Al-Rumayyan, who is said to be the mastermind behind the breakaway, was described as being upset that Khosla wasn't helping LIV meet its lofty targets.
Of course the landscape of men's professional golf is considerably different right now after it was confirmed on 6 June 2023 the organisations would work together towards an agreement.
And whilst Monahan expressed confidence, Davidson refused to be drawn into speculating on what might happen.
Davidson has given a wide-ranging interview with bunkered's Michael McEwan.
There were a number of interesting claims from Davidson.
- LIV is not dead and it is absolutely business as usual. "We've got multi-year agreements with players, venues, partners and suppliers," he said.
- The 2024 schedule is 95 per cent complete and there will be new venues
- LIV will not be heading to Turnberry
- There is likely to be new faces on the tour next year
- LIV is continuing to co-operate with the OWGR, despite Davidson contending the system is 'not credible'
- Greg Norman's job is safe as far as he is aware
- He believes LIV are only 20, 30 per cent of where 'we want to get to'.
- Money is starting to flow nicely back into LIV, despite arguments the tour would never break-even or get a ROI
- LIV are open-minded about expanding to 15 teams as that would not jeopardise the shotgun start
- Judge's ruling will be welcome news for PGA Tour/LIV Golf...for now
