Adam Scott gives brutally honest answer about his LIV Golf Tour decision

Adam Scott has revealed why he has turned down the advances of the LIV Golf Invitational Series...for now. 

Cast your mind back to February and you may remember all the chatter about the LIV Golf Tour as it ramped up behind the scenes. 

Clearly, players like Tiger Woods and Rory McIlroy were pro-PGA Tour. Jon Rahm made a weird comment about "pledging his fealty" to the established American Tour. 

Some players went back on their word. McIlroy went as far as saying the upstart was "dead in the water" at Woods' Genesis Invitational at Riviera. 

Well, that comment has aged well, hasn't it?!

But Scott? He was fairly open-minded. But as the months have drawn on Scott, now 42 years old, has become increasingly aligned with the PGA Tour. 

Scott previously explained that the money schedule of LIV Golf was very appealing. But he was present at the famous "player meeting" before the Tour Championship at East Lake that resulted in huge changes to try and deal with their new rival. 

He praised the overhaul that was announced by Tour commissioner Jay Monahan. 

One player, though, thought that the resulting changes meant that it might as well be called "The Rory Tour". 

Scott could just be waiting until after the 2022 Presidents Cup at Quail Hollow, but his comments are interesting. 

Greg Norman has previously spoken about Scott's future in recent weeks. It was expected that Scott would join Cameron Smith - who is now a winner on the LIV Golf Tour - in an all-Australian side.

When ask directly why he hasn't joined LIV Golf yet, Scott told the media: "Well, it's a big conversation that I really don't think I should enter in at the moment, but it is what it is.

"They're [LIV are] doing what they want to do, and the PGA Tour will continue to do what it does and try and put out the best product.

He added: "Why am I still on the PGA Tour is because it suits me best to be on the PGA Tour. It's as simple as that, really. There's one thing I think I haven't grasped is giving up my entire professional life of trying to achieve these things here and just leaving it behind.

"I'm obviously not ready to do that. I may never be, as well, to be clear. I just think that seems to be a hurdle that -- well, it hasn't really presented itself to me anyway."

Scott is playing in his 10th Presidents Cup. Could it be his last?!
