Xander Schauffele has echoed the sentiments expressed by Jordan Spieth about the under fire PGA Tour boss Jay Monahan.
Schauffele told the media in a news conference before the Scottish Open he was having a lovely 'canoodling session' with his French bulldog when his wife Maya woke up him to tell him the bombshell news.
That bombshell news? That the PGA Tour had struck an agreement with LIV Golf's backers.
"I don't know who looked worse, me or my little guy," Schauffele said, adding:
"I asked my wife to tell me where the news was coming from, what source it was.
"It was so early. I just remember laying there and I wanted to go back to bed, and then I was kind of like laying there, one eye, I was like -- then my phone just started going off.
"Unfortunately I had to wake the little guy up and had to get my day started."
Schauffele said he believes ultimately some good will come from the 'framework agreement' despite the high levels of scrutiny.
"So my hope is that there isn't much communication right now and things are a little bit unsettling and there is a bit of a divide between management and the players, if you want to call it that, and my hope is that a positive thing coming from that will be more communication, more transparency, and sort of understanding which direction the tour will go with us being sort of the ambassadors of it."
Like Spieth, Schauffele said his feelings towards Monahan have changed.
"We got a memo that he'll be back on the 17th.
"If you want to call it one of the rockier times on tour, the guy was supposed to be there for us, wasn't. Obviously he had some health issues.
"I'm glad that he said he's feeling much better. But yeah, I'd say he has a lot of tough questions to answer in his return, and yeah, I don't trust people easily.
"He had my trust and he has a lot less of it now. So I don't stand alone when I say that.
"Yeah, he'll just have to answer our questions when he comes back."
Schauffele is the defending champion of the Scottish Open. He is playing his first two rounds alongside Rory McIlroy and Justin Thomas.
