Ex LIV Golf pro calls into question 'very easy' setup at John Deere Classic on PGA Tour

Was the John Deere Classic too 'easy' for PGA Tour players last week? DP World Tour winner Pablo Larrazabal certainly thinks so...

Former LIV Golf pro Pablo Larrazabal has questioned the PGA Tour over its 'very easy' setup at the John Deere Classic last week.

Davis Thompson went on to capture his maiden PGA Tour title with an emphatic four-shot victory at TPC Deere Run.

The American's tally of 28-under par also saw him clinch a record tournament score by one shot at the John Deere Classic. 

The John Deere Classic has typically thrown up some very low scores down the years. 

You have to go back to 2008 since the last winning score was even as low as 16-under par. 

While some golf fans love a birdie fest out there, others prefer to see some of the best PGA Tour players tested a bit more. 

One of those people is seemingly nine-time DP World Tour winner Larrazabal, who questioned all the red numbers on the board. 

Even earlier in the week, Larrazabal hit out at American golf courses being 'boring'. 

Scroll below for his tweets...

Larrazabal tweeted during the final round of the John Deere Classic: 

'-19 outside the top 10 on the @PGATOUR ? These guys are good and the golf course has to be very easy….'

As it turned out, even 20-under par was only good enough for a T12.

A number of golf fans appeared to agree with Larrazabal's tweet.

Some cheekily suggested it was no different to a LIV Golf event.

Despite now being a regular back on the DP World Tour, the Spaniard did delve into the world of LIV Golf during its inaugural season in 2022.

The World No.150 only played in a handful of events before reverting back to the former European Tour circuit. 

Larrazabal missed the cut at last week's BMW International Open in Germany, which was won by Ewen Ferguson. 

Here's a look at some of the replies to Larrazabal's tweet about the scoring at the John Deere Classic:
