  • Billy Horschel urges PGA Tour to offer olive branch to LIV golfers ahead of The Players Championship
  • Xander Schauffele agrees that absence of LIV Golf stars is not good for the tournament

Billy Horschel has called on PGA Tour commissioner Jay Monahan to offer an olive branch to LIV golfers ahead of The Players Championship. Horschel believes that allowing the best players in the world to play in the unofficial fifth major would be for the betterment of the game of golf. The Players is currently without LIV golfers for the second consecutive year, with big names like Jon Rahm and Brooks Koepka missing from the field. All players who have joined the Saudi-backed league are ineligible to play on the PGA Tour.

Horschel hopes that talks accelerating with the Saudi Arabian Public Investment Fund will eventually lead to the best players in the world competing at The Players Championship. Xander Schauffele also agrees that the absence of LIV Golf stars does not help the tournament, but acknowledges that the situation is what it is for now.

Overall, the calls for the PGA Tour to reconsider its stance on LIV golfers participating in major tournaments like The Players Championship highlight the ongoing debate within the golfing community about the future of the sport and the unity of players across different tours.
