Ahaha hahahahahahahahaha! Every corporate sponsor of the PGA tour does business in Saudi Arabia! 🤯🔫

Mason Hunter August 4, 2022 - 4:43 PM

Last weekends news was interesting. The Biden administration killed the top al Qaeda thug. While Trump was golfing with the Saudi thugs.

Donna G August 4, 2022 - 4:45 PM

Another country taking over sports?

A Dee August 4, 2022 - 4:45 PM

PGA is full of hypocrites

A Dee August 4, 2022 - 4:47 PM

The United States just shipped 300 high grade weapons to Saudi Arabia, why can’t golfers get their piece of the pie. Hypocrisy

Ricardo Acain August 4, 2022 - 4:51 PM

Dr. Jackson was right about Drump because he looks fit as a fiddle out there on the golf course.

Let's Go Brandon 👍

Will Davis August 4, 2022 - 4:58 PM

Who really cares? All I remember is they took the knee and bowed down to woke ism

Thumper August 4, 2022 - 5:23 PM

Well they are not really fired sense they are never hired. You have to earn a tour card that’s extremely hard to do.

Stefan Uhlig August 4, 2022 - 5:30 PM

Important to know: The PGA Tour is a non-profit organisation that promotes professional golf. It is listed with the US Federal Tax Administration as a so-called "501(c) organisation" and is therefore exempt from income tax! Even though a lot of money flows into charitable causes and campaigns: Monahan and Co. make around a billion dollars every year from the Tour and golf.

Stefan Uhlig August 4, 2022 - 5:43 PM

One more detail: PGA Boss' Jay Monahan net worth is estimated at around $12 million. His main source of income is from his career as a commissioner of golf’s PGA Tour. Monahan salary per month with other career earnings are over $4 million annually. His successful career has earned him some luxurious lifestyles and some fancy car trips. He is one of the richest and influential PGA golf executives in the United States.

So Trump says on Fox that Saudi Arabia was behind 9 11, then takes Saudi money to host a LIV event at his Bedminster golf course?

Dreamwell August 4, 2022 - 5:53 PM

Does anyone care at all about this silly game?

frieza August 4, 2022 - 5:58 PM

The moment you exepted Saudi Arabian money you should be expelled from America permanently. TO HELL WITH THESE OVERPAID SCUMBAGS

Kirk Andrew August 4, 2022 - 6:00 PM

Why do you not allow comments on certain videos?

The Dude August 4, 2022 - 6:00 PM

Didn’t Jared, Trump family crime boss, get 2b dollar bribe from Saudi Prince BONESAW? HUM

Robert Hawkins August 4, 2022 - 6:40 PM

Let’s not forget the big picture – Golf is boring.

Aj M. August 4, 2022 - 6:45 PM

Golf is boring to watch (great if you need to nap), but fun to play… PGA needs to innovate or get out of the way.

D. Castillo August 4, 2022 - 6:46 PM

What's weird is Fox News has no opinion on Jared Kushner taking a few Billion dollars from the Saudis.

K2 August 4, 2022 - 6:52 PM

How much money did Tucker and Trump take from the Saudi butcher prince??

Rip Cord August 4, 2022 - 7:15 PM

Get the Maxwell client list……who cares about golf !!

Doug Reggio August 4, 2022 - 7:15 PM

Good get rid of the traitors

gregORY August 4, 2022 - 7:51 PM

Well it's like playing for an American baseball league. Not allowed to play other leagues t the same time. So….

Dean Turchi August 4, 2022 - 7:59 PM

"There is a lot of anger at these hearings and also a lot of defensiveness about January 6," he said. "The MAGA followers are not watching the hearings, but they're hearing about them. Some bad things about Trump are being confirmed that the MAGA people suspected he did, and they don't like having to deal with it. The MAGA followers are getting very mad at people like me and other others who have been telling the truth about Trump and the coup since it happened."

M McTest August 4, 2022 - 8:13 PM

Let the PGA die. Start a competing tour. People are free and compatition is good. Let's hope and pray for everyone especially the PGA to see the light and do the right things for everyone not just themselves. My opinion

Peter Cristo August 4, 2022 - 8:15 PM

This reminds me of the NFL stuff years ago. The PGA could get roughed up or walk into a trap here.

Chung Jones August 4, 2022 - 8:30 PM

Powerful will fight to keep themselves in power no matter what…

PC Games August 4, 2022 - 9:43 PM

Yo, Evil Confederate Christian Nazis…. Drink Bleach, it'll cure you. Trump drinks it every day. Trust me…Melania mixes it in with Trump's milk. 🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏

Disney Magic Addict August 4, 2022 - 9:50 PM

It's a cut and dried antitrust lawsuit. The PGA has no business reason to create and enforce those rules other than to stop any potential competition. That is exactly what antitrust laws are intended to prevent.

V August 4, 2022 - 10:34 PM

Jared and Mnuchin got billions from the Saudis.

Ester Hudson August 4, 2022 - 10:39 PM

Poor babies. I’ll say a prayer for them in these times.🤢🤢

dAn August 4, 2022 - 10:48 PM

PGA is lost.

Clayton Evans August 5, 2022 - 12:08 AM

Golfers should band together and tell the leaders of the PGA to kiss their A$$es

ab diver August 5, 2022 - 12:15 AM

Just a different form of Prostitution….anything for money.

Gary Biggs August 5, 2022 - 12:50 AM

Starving Americans leave their tents and head to Walmart to watch the PGA tour.
Nothing more important happening in America…..

Hugh Jorgan August 5, 2022 - 1:20 AM

Oh the hypocrisy. Tiger, Rory and Nicklaus (course design) have all taken huge sums of Saudi money in the past.

J B August 5, 2022 - 1:20 AM

Never forget September 11, 2001

David Womack August 5, 2022 - 1:25 AM

And they should. The PGA made most of these players who they are….

Ross Balling August 5, 2022 - 4:25 AM

Hmm Pro Beach Volleyball has been dealing with a monopoly style association for 30 year's.

Michael August 5, 2022 - 4:47 AM

Sweet. You can call it anything you want. OR, you can be Tucker Carlson and know that your GOAL is to like money and corruption, and then work your way backwards to make the point 'The PGA is bad!'. But overall, it is a simple 'Non-Compete Agreement'. Why would the PGA employ people who are actively involved in promoting their competitor? It's a standard process to fire people who do that. If Tucker Carlson cross-pollinated with another network, HE would be fired for the same reason. If you can't understand this, I guess that's why you get your Fox 'News' dumbed down for you to your level of 50 IQ.

Dog Lover August 5, 2022 - 5:14 AM

These rich spoil brats…like any other sport stop wasting your money funding them. It's a freaking game…🤮🤮🤮🤮🤮

Jessy Leodyn August 5, 2022 - 5:39 AM

There is too much money in golf and the PGA Tour does not want to share. It is a shame : the sport itself is wonderful and carries values that are mocked by the PGA Tour management.
