Tiger Woods and Rory McIlroy have been served with subpoenas as U.S. Part of the ongoing legal battle between the Tour and LIV Golf.

Per Hamel, controversially only Woods and McIlroy players meet during the BMW Championship. Larry Klayman, who represented Patrick Reed in Reed’s defamation lawsuit, argued that the meeting was “an anticompetitive and antitrust violation against the LIV Golf Tour and its players.”

Eleven golfers signed with LIV Golf filed an antitrust lawsuit against the PGA Tour on Aug. 3.

The Wall Street Journal Louise Radnofsky and Andrew Beaton reported on July 11 that the US Department of Justice was investigating the PGA Tour and its actions in response to the emergence of LIV Golf. Reed files $750 million defamation lawsuit against Brandel Chamblee and Golf Channel, with longtime Dissatisfaction with Chamblee and the network’s coverage of him.

Golf Digest‘s Todd Leonard noted that the subpoenas issued to Woods and McIlroy predate Reed’s lawsuit.

On the eve of the BMW Championship, Woods traveled to Wimington, Delaware, to meet with a group of prominent PGA Tour stars.

“One of the things that comes out of this, I think that’s the purpose, all the tops on this tour It’s fantastic that the players are all in agreement and agreement on where we should go,” McIlroy told reporters after the party.

On Wednesday, PGA Tour Commissioner Jay Monahan announced significant changes to the tour, including an announcement to all Tour full members Pay a minimum prize of $500,000, and a commitment from top stars to play. At least 20 events.

In possibly bigger news, Woods and McIlroy announced that they would be teaming up with TGL. Working with the PGA Tour, the “tech-infused” joint venture will take a team-based format and schedule events on Monday nights throughout the season.
