Unlike the organizers of the other PGA majors, those of the tournament which will get under way Thursday at the club in Brookline, Massachusetts, have allowed the headliners of LIV to take part in their event. For Koepka, it is better to talk about more positive aspects in order to give good publicity to the Omnium as well as to other competitions and to the sport as such.

“I'm here at the US Open and ready to play it. I think this is all sad. You all put this dark cloud over the tournament,” he told the CBS Sports network, targeting the media as a whole.

“I am tired of all these conversations and these stories, he chained, specifying not to have thought too much about the idea of ​​​​playing within the” cursed circuit “. We are here to perform and you are still talking about an event that took place last week.

This competition is actually the first event in LIV history to take place in London last week. Charl Schwartzel was the individual winner, also helping the Stinger GC win the team tournament.

LIV is funded by the Public Investment Fund of Saudi Arabia and offers tempting scholarships. In fact, Schwartzel pocketed $4.75 million for his work weekend. Among the golfers who have opted for this organization are Bryson DeChambeau and Phil Mickelson. Due to their involvement with LIV, they have been suspended indefinitely by the PGA.
