27.08.2022 : The trap of lawful complexities encompassing the PGA Tour and LIV Golf just roped in Tiger Woods and Rory McIlroy.
The two PGA Tour golf players were served summons by lawyer Larry Klayman requesting them to affirm about the puzzling players meeting PGA Tour golf players barely a week ago, as per Golf week. Klayman addresses LIV golf player Patrick Reed in his $750 million claims against Golf Channel and pundit Brandel Chamblee.

The legal counselor guarantees the gathering was “anti competitive and violation of the antitrust regulations versus the LIV Golf Tour and its players,” and that the progressions the PGA Tour uncovered Wednesday are an endeavor to “copy LIV Golf, while proceeding to purportedly hurt LIV and its players by, among other affirmed anti competitive demonstrations, attempting to deny them world positioning focuses to contend in significant competitions like the Masters, U.S. Open, British Open and PGA Championship.”

Klayman apparently needs more insights regarding the gathering that probably helped prod these changes:
“This is definitely not an individual ‘thing’ against Woods, McIlroy and Monahan, it’s tied in with getting data about what happened at the players’ gathering and by and large concerning claims in our protest that the PGA Tour, the DP World Tour and their chiefs Jay Monahan and Keith Pelley, are supposedly plotting in limitation of exchange and the antitrust regulations to hurt the LIV Golf Tour and its players.”
