LIV Golf remains the most empty thing in all of sports

This is the online version of our daily newsletter, The Morning WinSubscribe to get irreverent and incisive sports stories, delivered to your mailbox every morning.

The third LIV Golf exhibition happened this past weekend in New Jersey where somebody won the tournament and took home a lot of money.

I’m sure some teams also won a good chunk of money for getting the best scores.

Oh, and other players who didn’t come close to winning still likely won a bunch of money, too.

All of that is probably forgotten now by most sports fans because what happens at LIV Golf events really doesn’t matter. There is no meaning to any of it. They are watered down exhibitions played over three days with no cut and no reason to care who lifts a trophy on the final day.

There is no spark. There is no history. There is nothing that comes even remotely close to connecting fans with the players because how is one supposed to care at all about some golfer winning more money for their bank account?

I watch a ton of golf. Way more golf than one should watch and I have no idea who won the second LIV Golf event that happened a few weeks ago. I’m guessing you don’t either and I’m also guessing the nameless folks on Twitter who will yell at anyone who questions this dumb league would have to do a Google search to find the answer.

LIV is an empty wasteland where players soak in the money of the Saudi-funded league and don’t care about anything at all. There is no depth and there are no juicy storylines.

This week’s tournament was played at a Trump course and the former president was there wearing the same white shirt and black pants and silly red hat each day, taking in loud cheers from fans who have probably shouted in the past how there is no place for politics in sports.

It’s fitting all that went on at a LIV Golf event because again, these things are mindless blips that come and go like the wind with nobody really caring what happened between the ropes.

Look at Phil Mickelson. You remember him, right? He finished near the back of the pack yet again with a score of 6 over. He’s now a combined 26 over in the three LIV exhibitions but again, none of that matters. His gigantic checks cash and that’s apparently the most important thing here.

There will be more LIV events and big checks and carney-like announcers trying to tell the viewers about how cool and different everything is in these exhibitions.

But the only real difference is that nothing matters and nothing will be remembered for very long.
