Six-time PGA Tour winner and former United States Ryder Cup player Hunter Mahan has tweeted "the players are done with Jay Monahan" following his recent decision to partner with the Saudi Public Investment Fund, which bankrolls the LIV Golf League.
Monahan had spent the past 12 months bashing Saudi Arabia's funding of the LIV Golf League, only to then change his mind last month and confirm the PGA Tour would be joining forces with the Saudi PIF led by its governor Yasir Al-Rumayyan.
The sudden shock merger between the PGA Tour, DP World Tour and the Saudi PIF has rocked the sport at large and has left all of the world's best players on the PGA Tour scratching the surface.
Even World No.1 Scottie Scheffler is stumped as to what is really going on.
Ahead of the Scottish Open this week, a co-sanctioned event between the DP World Tour and PGA Tour, Scheffler said:
It is understood by a large number of players that Monahan's days as PGA Tour commissioner are numbered.
Six-time PGA Tour winner Mahan tweeted: "Players are done with him, except I’m not what the process is for removing him. Great time for players to find real representation."
It is also understood that Greg Norman's days as LIV Golf CEO could be numbered following this week's latest Senate hearing with the PGA Tour.

Schauffele is the defending champion of this week's Scottish Open.
