Rory McIlroy reacts to tensions between PGA Tour and LIV Golf Rory McIlroy says that golf is ripping itself apart

In recent weeks golf has been prominently featured in news reports because of an ongoing PGA Tour versus LIV Golf dispute.

The conflict between PGA Tour and the Saudi-backed LIV Golf is growing with each day, and the rift has caused a lot of controversies. 

In the past, FedEx Cup champion Rory McIlroy expressed his opinion on the split which has led to golf breaking apart.

McIlroy told Reuters, "I don't want an unbroken game. I've never had. If you look at other sports, you see how they've changed and golf is in a state of disintegration at the moment.

"It's not good for players on this side, or in the form of the traditional system, and it's not beneficial for those on the other side too.

This isn't good for anybody. There's a time and place for it. But in the present, given where the world is at, it's not the best time to do it.

"Eleven LIV players had initially signed a consent form to support an antitrust lawsuit brought in the case against PGA Tour,

where they claimed it was operating as a monopoly and alleging the ban of players joining to the circuit wasn't in line with the law.
