Hear a New Rumor Everyday’: Keegan Bradley Unimpressed Despite Tiger Woods & Co’s Urgent Move to Save PIF Merger

June 8, 2024

Exactly a year has passed since the first announcement of the PGA Tour-PIF deal, and since then there have been just updates but no conclusion so far. While some professionals, like Rory McIlroy and Phil Mickelson, are optimistic about the deal, others remain uncertain about its outcome. And one of the uncertain golfers happens to be Keegan Bradley.After the conclusion of the first round, Bradley joined the press conference at Muirfield Village. While they talked about the wind conditions and his total score of 70-under-par, the six-time PGA Tour winner also came across an interesting question regarding the PGA Tour-PIF deal. What does Bradley have to say about that? Let’s find out!Keegan Bradley has “no clue what’s going to happen” When asked “We’re one year out from the January 6th framework agreement announcement in this last year. What’s the sense you’re getting, now that we’re a year in, are we getting closer or….” Before the interviewer could finish, the 37-year-old responded, “I think a year later seems like there’s a lot of rumors and everything’s the exact same, so I don’t know. I haven’t seen a single difference since that day. ”According to the golfer, there hasn’t been any significant change in the golf world since the merger news. This is somewhat accurate, as Jay Monahan and Greg Norman have yet to finalize any conclusions regarding the highly anticipated $3 billion deal. While explaining his thoughts on the matter, Bradley further added, “I’ve heard a lot of things that could happen. I’m thankful for Fenway Sports Group. I have no clue what’s going to happen with PIF. I hear a new rumor every day.“ Emphasizing the vague updates on the matter, the golfer also highlighted the uncertainty surrounding the situation.Following this revelation, doubts may arise within the community, especially after Rory McIlroy‘s recent comments. According to the four-time major winner, the deal will take more time and might not be finalized until 2026, which he considers a reasonable timeline. He said, “2026, if that means we’ve just got a year-and-a-half left of this and 2026 looks a little different, I actually think that’s a pretty good timeline considering all of the things that have to be worked out,” to Beyond the Clubhouse podcast. Additionally, McIlroy is hopeful that there could be an understanding between both tours, making the process easier for professionals and officials alike.Despite these developments, there remains a lack of clarity from both the PGA Tour and LIV Golf regarding the merger. This delay is affecting Jay Monahan and the tour, with some sponsors losing interest. Although the situation is still unclear, there is hope for answers with an upcoming meeting lined up between the PGA Tour transaction committee and PIF.
