Earlier today, the golf world was officially shattered when it was announced that the PGA Tour and the Saudi Arabia-backed LIV Golf Tour announced that they would be merging together to become one entity.
Needless to say, it was a shock to everybody, considering the PGA Tour threatened golfers that they would no longer be able to compete in PGA events if they chose to take the tons of money offered by LIV Golf, due to the “immorality” of Saudi Arabia’s laws.
And of course, now that the two have decided to join together, you’ve gotta think the players currently on the PGA Tour are extremely upset that they didn’t take the insane amounts of money that Brooks Koepka, Dustin Johnson, Phil Mickelson and more took to join LIV.
But maybe they should have seen it coming…because apparently Donald Trump did.
The former president, who is an avid golfer himself, actually predicted the merger nearly a year ago today.
He said back in 2022:
“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 PGA officials who are making Millions of Dollars a year.
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.”
Well needless to say, he was pretty spot on with that one.
