We have heard very little as of late regarding the stalled merger between the PGA Tour and LIV Golf. But on Tuesday just days before the start of the 2024 U.S. Open which will have both PGA Tour and LIV players in it, we have reports that the two golf tours could be making some progress on their potential merger.

According to longtime golf writer Alan Shipnuck, a “prominent agent” who has clients on both the PGA Tour and LIV Golf was told that a “draft agreement” was signed on Tuesday that finalizes Saudi investment in the PGA Tour.

Shipnuck added that this is “definitive progress”, but that there are more details to come on what this means for both tours.

There are obviously some potential things that could potentially hold up the merger ultimately going through.

Are the PGA Tour players who decided to stay loyal to the tour instead of taking the LIV Golf money going to be compensated for all of the money that they lost out on?

It’s a very fair question. Particularly because a merger would mean that the likes of Brooks Koepka, Bryson DeChambeau, and Jon Rahm would be able to walk back onto the PGA Tour and take part in events like they never even left, while also having all of the LIV money that they accepted.

Still, we could be headed towards a united golf world once again, which is obviously a win-win situation for fans.
