Several PGA Tour pros boycotted the members' only meeting that was scheduled before the Players Championship, according to a report.
Per Golf Channel, it is said that several players decided to skip the meeting that was scheduled for 7.30am on 7 March at TPC Sawgrass.
The timing is interesting, given it was only last week that the established tour announced bombshell changes to their 2024 schedule.
Those changes will see eight of their designated events reduced to fields of 70-78 players and the absence of a 36-hole cut.

Elsewhere, the PGA Tour will no longer require top players to participate in certain events: the Players, the four majors (if eligible), the three FedEx Cup playoff events and an additional eight 'designated' events.
Per a memo from commissioner Jay Monahan, the tour will now focus on:
That's hardly surprising, given that McIlroy is director of the tour's Players Advisory Council [PAC]. Homa also serves on the PAC.
McIlroy has acknowledged the changes were a response to the LIV Golf League but insists those jumping to conclusions are acting on limited information.
He said before the Arnold Palmer Invitational that he believed wholeheartedly in the new structure.
McIlroy told the media:
Golf Channel have not reported which players decided to skip the meeting. Per the publication, it is said that several players were upset no meeting was planned before the changes were announced.
We are sure that one of those players who definitely will be there is James Hahn.
Hahn was one of the few voices to publicly criticise the changes.
