If you know much about golf, you know that the PGA Tour and LIV Golf have pretty much been rivals from the get-go. But on Tuesday, true to Donald Trump’s predictions, the two have officially merged.
To say it’s big news for the golf world is no small matter. In fact, some might say the merger is a bit like Democrats and Republicans merging into one super party.
But as I mentioned, it’s something that Trump predicted about a year ago. And like most of his predictions, it’s come to fruition.
As Trump said last July, “All of those golfers that remain ‘loyal’ to the very disloyal PGA, in all of its different forms, will pay a big price when the inevitable MERGER with LIV comes, and you get nothing but a big ‘thank you’ from the PGA officials who are making Millions of Dollars a year.”
He also added, “If you don’t take the money now, you will get nothing after the merger takes place, and only say how smart the original signees were.”
Now, for those of you unfamiliar with all of this, suffice it to say that the PGA Tour and LIV, which the Public Investment Fund owns, have been attempting to pull from one another for years, with the PGA sorely losing.
Of course, a large part of that is because the PIF is basically an enormous trust fund for the Saudi Arabian royal family and officials. As such, they’ve had the funds to pull big names like Phil Mickelson, Brooks Koepka, and Dustin Johnson from the PGA.
Others, such as Tiger Woods, were offered as much as $800 million to leave the PGA for the supposedly greener pastures of LIV Golf.

And true to Trump’s prediction, all those offers are now null and void, with each player now receiving little more than a thank you for staying “loyal” to PGA.
Talk about a big win for Trump, especially since he’s been part of LIV Gold for years now.
