The Associated Press is reporting that only a handful of PGA Tour golfers attended a meeting in Memphis to meet with Commissioner Jay Monahan.

As has been previously reported recently, several PGA golfers aren’t happy with the way Monahan has conducted business recently and wanted him out.

It’s clear from the report, that many are showing their displeasure with Monahan by boycotting a meeting that was held Tuesday at TPC Southwind in Memphis.

Those who attended said they thought that the merger between LIV Golf and the PGA Tour may not go through.

Tom Hoge said he left that meeting thinking there was a “very real possibility” that such a deal doesn’t ever get done.

“There’s a lot of moving parts that have to come together for it,” Hoge said.

Rickie Fowler was a little bit more optimistic about the deal going through but he wasn’t 100 percent convinced either.

“There are a lot of parts that have to come together,” Fowler said. “You obviously have to get a majority, if not unanimous, as far as board and player support. Yes, there are a lot of things that have to come together for this to happen, and I would say that you’d have to sell everyone on that this is the best option for the tour, for the players, for everyone moving forward. I’m not saying that’s not possible.”

The PGA Board of Directors added Tiger Woods last week to the board after players demanded more representation, but from the sounds of it, this merger is in trouble.
