BOCA RATON — LIV Golf is as divisive with the PGA Tour Champions crowd as it is with other professional golfers.

Most of the veterans do not follow LIV and have no interest in the golf or the format, but they understand that the money is difficult for some to turn down.

Then there is Hall of Famer Bernhard Langer, who believes the series, which is financed by Saudi Arabia’s Public Investment Fund, is damaging the sport.

“I think it’s hurting golf, I don’t think it’s good,” Langer said. “I don’t see that they have a business plan but I can understand for some people it’s difficult to turn down that kind of money.”
