GOLF: Donald Trump Defends The LIV Golf Tour, The Tournament Supported By The Saudi Government

The former president of the USA takes part in a controversial decision that divides athletes.

Former US President Donald Trump defended holding LIV Golf, a tournament backed by Saudi Arabia, amid a tense debate. The event has split world golf in two: on the one hand, there are athletes who endorse it and who have signed up for the millionaire economic prizes it offers; on the other, other figures assure that the event does not fit into the " classic" golf circuits and that it breaks with the established structures.

"He's done an amazing job giving us the best platform for us to play. I see some of the, I'll put it nicely, points or arguments that might make some pros prefer LIV Golf but the format doesn't really appeal to me. Three days for me It 's not a golf tournament, and no court. It's that simple. I want to play against the best in the world in a format that has been around for hundreds of years," said John Rahm of the controversial tournament.

The former president of the United States took sides in the matter. In fact, the Trump National Golf Club will host an LIV Golf Tour event, in which great sports stars such as Dustin Johnson, Bryson DeChambeau, Phil Mickelson, Brooks Koepka or Sergio García have already participated.

The decision of the Republican leader has caused reactions beyond golf. Trump, at first, was an outspoken critic of the Saudi government when he ran for election. However, after arriving at the White House he softened the tone he used to address the Middle Eastern country and even made his first international outing to Riyadh.
