Greg Norman has taken to his Instagram page to roast Jay Monahan with a meme after seeing the PGA Tour increase prize money at 12 "elevated events" to match those of the LIV Golf Tour

Earlier today ahead of the season-ending Tour Championship that will determine the winner of the FedEx Cup, the PGA Tour announced new enhancements to its schedule that commissioner Monahan claims will "better serve its players, fans, sponsors and media partners."

Monahan has confirmed 12 PGA Tour events will now comprise an average prize fund of $20 million, and the PGA Tour's best players will play in all 12 of them, and at least 20 in total, during the season. 

A host of other changes have been made to life on the PGA Tour, including a minimum salary of $500,000 for all players - something that will no doubt prove an even bigger drive for those looking to make the grade up from the Korn Ferry Tour. 

PGA Tour players will also receive $5,000 even if they miss a cut, meaning they will not go short in terms of expenses following a tough week on the course. 

Rory McIlroy and Tiger Woods have even announced a new Monday Night Golf League in partnership with the PGA Tour, set for January 2024. 

All the changes have come about after McIlroy, Woods and other PGA Tour stars came together last week to discuss how to tackle LIV Golf.

After seeing the PGA Tour act heavily today in light of LIV Golf attracting the likes of Dustin Johnson, Brooks Koepka and Bryson DeChambeau, LIV Golf CEO Norman could not help but take a swipe at Monahan on social media.

Norman posted the following meme: 

The meme reads: 

Jay: "Hey, can I copy your homework?"

Greg: "Sure, just make it look different so it doesn't look too obvious."

Norman captioned the post: "A day late and a dollar short @pgamemes."

LIV Golf players Lee Westwood and Charles Howell III replied with crying laughter faces in the comments. 

Open champion Cameron Smith is expected to move to LIV Golf after the FedEx Cup concludes this week. 

There will also be a number of other signings ahead of the next LIV Golf Boston tournament in early September. 

Within hours of hearing the latest PGA Tour news, LIV Golf issued the following statement: "LIV Golf is clearly the best thing that’s ever happened to help the careers of professional golfers."

Norman recently announced a new LIV Golf League for 2023, which will see 12 established team captains and an increased 14-tournament schedule with $405 million in total prize money.
