Sally Jenkins on the Secret Deal Which Signed the PGA Tour Over to a Saudi Prince

From a Washington Post column by Sally Jenkins headlined “It’s time for golfers to seize control of their game”:

Three guys smoked cigars together and made a secret deal in which they signed the PGA Tour over to a single Saudi financier. How did such a thing happen? The fact that it could is reason enough for players to junk the current system for the trash bag that it is and launch a whole new platform, a new order, a new tour. Owned by the players. Fellas, everybody stand up and take two steps to the side. Get out from under. Leave the double-dealing honchos holding nothing but paper. Turn the PGA Tour — and LIV Golf, too — into empty cardboard boxes. They have it coming.
