LE FIGARO GOLF. – Pascal Grizot, is the merger between the PGA Tour, the DP World Tour and the LIV Golf good news?

Pascal GRIZOT. – Yes, definitely, this is good news. I am not going to say otherwise, since I personally have always worked to ensure that all parties discuss among themselves and that there is a collective solution. This merger opens the door of golf to a player who has significant resources. The Saudi monarch is young, ambitious and has good vision. It will annoy some to know that we will now have to reckon with him but I think it's a good thing for golf fans.

Can we talk today about a future world golf tour?

I think so. Bridges between tournaments will now exist and several divisions will coexist. This will allow the birth of schools of champions beyond the main circuit. This is a very good thing for golf fans who will have a better reading of high-level golf and its stakes. As well as for golf partners who will be able to see more clearly in their investment.

Is there a direct impact on French golf?

As I said, we have always been correct with everyone, from the Europeans to the Americans and the Saudis. I hope that French golf can rejoice in this agreement. For example, by considering a big tournament in France as part of the next world tour that will be implemented.
