For now, Adam Scott appears to have rejected the advances of the LIV Golf League

The 42-year-old Australian - who is back working with Tiger Woods' legendary caddie in 2023 - reaffirmed his commitment to the PGA Tour by joining the Players Advisory Council [PAC]. 

We're reliably informed that Scott will be a "leading voice" alongside the likes of the aforementioned Woods and Rory McIlroy as the PGA Tour embraces a new era in professional golf. 

When speaking to the media about his new role, Scott said he was more interested in the direction of the tour than the ongoing legal battles. 

Scott said of his decision to join the 16-player PAC: 

"I'm more interested in what the future of the tour looks like. I convinced myself that it was worth diving into that to see what's going on."

Scott played in the PGA Tour's second event of 2023 at the Sony Open. 

Si Woo Kim captured his fourth victory and sealed the deal with a 28-foot chip in for birdie.

Adam Scott's new PGA Tour role with Rory? Azinger:

In the NBC broadcast, they discussed Scott's new role. 

Commentator Dan Hicks talked up Scott's new position but former Ryder Cup skipper Paul Azinger was having absolutely none of it. 

Azinger, who won 12 PGA Tour events in his career and captained the U.S. to Ryder Cup victory in 2008 at Valhalla, described the PAC as a "colossal waste of time". 

And he served on the PAC for 13 years! 

Azinger said:

"I thought it was a colossal waste of time. But you think you're achieving things, but..." 

Hicks interjected. 

Azinger continued: 

"Ah, you know. Well, you're sitting in that chair to be honest. It might be different nowadays." 


It's fair to say Hicks didn't expect Azinger to go down that path!

Does Azinger have a point?  

It has to be said that Azinger might well have a point considering the biggest changes we have seen on the PGA Tour in recent memory were driven by a private meeting between the players during last year's FedEx Cup playoffs.

Woods, McIlroy and the top talent on the Tour met and agreed that in response to LIV the fields needed to be stronger. 

Wholesale changes were made elsewhere and PGA Tour commissioner Jay Monahan claimed that while he knew what was being discussed, he had not input into the meeting.
