PGA of America boss Seth Waugh hit the headlines before the 2023 PGA Championship for his unflinching take on the future of LIV Golf.
Despite tensions cooling somewhat (we're looking at you, Rory McIlroy) men's professional golf is still at war.
A U.S. Department of Justice investigation into the the PGA Tour's alleged anticompetitive behaviour looms large. The PGA of America, the governing body that oversees the PGA Championship, is also caught up in that.
There are also no signs of a settlement in the litigation between the PGA Tour and LIV.
Speaking before the PGA Championship, Waugh stated he was proud that 'civility' was brought to the game when LIV Golf players competed against PGA Tour stars at the 87th Masters.

That being said, Waugh didn't shy away from stirring the pot before the best in the world took to the monstrous Oak Hill.
Oh, and Waugh is also a board member of the Official World Golf Ranking, which is considering LIV's application for recognition.
That application was lodged last July and still we are no nearer into having clarity on this topic.
Waugh said there has been 'a healthy back-and-forth' with LIV executives but this has been disputed.
Still, we're wondering what Waugh must've been thinking as Brooks Koepka claimed his fifth major and delivered a welcome PR boost to the Saudi-backed league.

Waugh posed alongside Koepka and the Wanamaker in the immediate aftermath of the 33-year-old's stunning victory.
He appeared to be involved in an awkward moment that was captured and re-shared by @golfproryan.

Golf fans were debating what exactly was said between the two.
