The PGA Tour really does not want to lose anymore golfers to LIV Golf, and they are now getting some outside help to make sure it does not happen.
Professional Golfers have been made an offer to stay on the PGA Tour from a rather unlikely source, as the controversial LIV Series continues to divide the sport. In a bizarre turn of events, an adult site has made an offer to golf stars to convince them to remain on the PGA Tour.
A plea for players to stay with the Professional Golfers’ Association has come from the adult livestream website Stripchat, as they are prepared to offer a free VIP membership to any PGA golfer who turns down an invite from LIV.
Here’s the statement released by the popular cam site.
“As the drama continues to heat up between golfers, the PGA Tour, and LIV Golf, leading adult camming site Stripchat has decided to take sides and incentivize golfers to continue supporting the prestigious PGA Tour! We’re making an offer that’s hard to refuse,” a cheeky message read.
“We here at Stripchat – the leading adult live cam site with more than 500 million unique visitors per month – are big fans of Golf and the PGA Tour,” Max Bennett, the Vice President at Stripchat added.
“After seeing the disgrace of players turning their back on the PGA Tour for large sums of money to participate in the LIV Golf Series, we wanted to make an offer that would be hard to resist and try to help save the sanctity of our sport. With that being said, Stripchat formally announces that any PGA Tour golfer who publicly make an announcement to stay with the PGA Tour will receive a “Stripchat VIP Membership” for the rest of their career and enough tokens (a form of virtual currency) to keep them…in shape…while participating in the PGA Tour.
“We’re excited to contribute to this noble cause and support the PGA in their battle to keep the best players. We look forward to watching you play on and off the course this season!”
The PGA Tour has suspended 17 players, including six-time major winner Phil Mickelson and former world #1 Dustin Johnson, after they teed off at the controversial tournament backed by Saudi Arabia. Players who resigned their membership on the tour to join the LIV golf series – which kicked off in London last Thursday – are also no longer eligible to compete in PGA events or the Presidents Cup.
“These players have made their choice for their own financial-based reasons,” PGA Tour commissioner Jay Monahan wrote in a memo to the tour’s membership. “But they can’t demand the same PGA TOUR membership benefits, considerations, opportunities and platform as you. That expectation disrespects you, our fans and our partners. You have made a different choice, which is to abide by the Tournament Regulations you agreed to when you accomplished the dream of earning a PGA TOUR card and — more importantly — to compete as part of the preeminent organization in the world of professional golf.”
