Mediate stated on the Beyond The Clubhouse podcast that those who have left the PGA TOUR should show respect.
He said, “What’s happening now? It kind of p ***** off the way men talk about what they have.”
Think about Greg Norman. Everything he has is because he played on PGA Tour. Without it, what would you have done? There was no other platform and there isn’t one now. 54 holes in shorts, whoop em>
The 59-year old was less concerned with the fact they decided to take the money than they were with their actions towards the PGA TOUR since making that decision.
“Ofcourse it would be great to make money, I don’t blame them at any time. It’s not an issue that they’ve been traveling to Saudi Arabia for a million year for the appearance money. Do it right, how about a thank-you em>

Rocco stated that if LIV asked him to, he would probably agree, but he would do it the right way.
“That’s the way you do it. You don’t have to be a d ***,, because you are already getting paid more than you ever earned.
“The only thing we do here (PGA Tour), is that you earn it. They don’t give it to you – that’s how it has always been.”
