Blumenthal Statement on the LIV Golf-PGA Tour Merger

[WASHINGTON, D.C.] – U.S. Senator Richard Blumenthal (D-CT) released the statement below on the merger of Saudi-backed LIV Golf with the PGA Tour:

“The PGA Tour has spent two years lambasting Saudi sports-washing and paying lip service the integrity of the sport of golf, which will now be used unabashedly by the Kingdom to distract from its many crimes. The PGA Tour has placed a price on human rights and betrayed the long history of sports and athletes that advocate for social change and progress. I will keep a close eye on the structure of this deal and its implications.”
