Xander Schauffele appeared somewhat relieved when he confirmed he wasn't one of the players contacted by the US Senate over the PGA Tour's deal with LIV Golf's Saudi backers.
It was the scene of another meeting where PGA Tour members sought answers from the top brass about the shock agreement between the two organisations.
Schauffele was pressed about the meeting and he confirmed that had he not had an obligation with a sponsor he would have attended.
According to Adam Scott, the tension amongst the members appeared to have cooled somewhat compared to the last one before the Canadian Open hours after PGA Tour boss Jay Monahan announced the deal that rocked the world of men's professional golf.

Schauffele was asked the biggest question he had about the deal.
"The sad part is I probably don't even have a question they can answer," Schauffele said, adding:
Schauffele confirmed he wasn't one of the players who was contacted by US lawmakers.
Does he know anyone that was?
Schauffele's comments come as key players from LIV Golf, the PGA Tour and Saudi Arabia's PIF have been requested to give their testimony about the merger.
Judging by Schauffele's comments, the mood is somewhat tense.
