PGA Tour Star Tony Finau is in the middle of not one but two messy lawsuits.
Finau, his brother, and is father are being sued by business associates who are asking for “repayments of loans and other wors and services they provided for the family” over the years. The family is dealing with two separate lawsuits that are believed to be targeting Finau’s earnings on the PGA Tour, which according to Sportrac, is well over $50 million.
The plantiffs, Molonai Hola and David Hunter, are suing the Finau’s for 20% of the professional golfer’s career earnings, which would be in the tens of millions of dollars.
Finau hasn’t spoken publicly about the matter, but his manager has said that these are business partnerships that dissolved years ago and that they “ae confident that the legal process will carry out in due course.“
Finau has gained more public exposure recently from the Netflix special “Full Swing” which detailed his rise from growing up broke in Salt Lake City to among the most beloved golfers in the world today.
The lawsuit is without a doubt a distraction for the golfer, but regardless of the outcome, he’s poised to take the golf world by storm.
