True, but did he really have a choice here? If your adversary has $600 billion in assets and you have $100 million in reserves after having already spent $50 million on legal fees.....and you are facing many more years of lawsuits and your sponsors are likely not thrilled about paying for the enhanced events.....don't you choose for the slings and arrows that are headed your way over the likely eventual decimation of your organization?
My own personal hope is the LIV players face a steep uphill climb to get back on the PGA tour. I would like a long enough suspension where their 2 years of accumulating OWG points essentially dry up and they are faced to compete against others with little or no status. Compete where eligible in the majors, I suppose, but not elsewhere without starting over.
You are correct they had no choice. Now they had a choice before LIV got started and Jay wanted nothing to do with the changes wanted. Now that has got a gun to his head he is back tracking.
I hope your 2nd paragraph is correct and the guys that bailed face stiff competition and penalties to come back.
