In response to Anthony Kim’s vehement argument with Brandel Chamblee concerning LIV Golf and the PGA Tour, Phil Mickelson chose to intervene.

Phil Mickelson found himself embroiled in an intense argument about LIV Golf and the PGA Tour between Anthony Kim and Brandel Chamblee.

Former Tour winner and Golf Channel analyst Chamblee has been the catalyst over the past few years.

However, it was Kim who chose to target Chamblee this week, calling the 61-year-old a “p—-” for pleading with the North American circuit to reach an agreement with the Saudi sponsors of the breakaway tour.

Given that Chamblee had previously demanded that Mickelson be excluded from the golf Hall of Fame due to his close ties to the Saudi Arabian government, his remarks represented a radical about face.

After finishing last on the PGA Tour in 2012, Kim went more than ten years without playing professional golf before joining LIV in February.

Upon his return, he revealed his battle with addiction and, worrisomely, stated that medical professionals had informed him that his life would not be prolonged unless he made drastic changes.

The golfer has frequently acknowledged that his daughter Bella and wife Emily have kept him on the straight and narrow.

Kim believes he will turn the corner and win again even though he has had difficulty with form with LIV thus far.

Now that he’s voiced his opinion, Mickelson says that the men’s professional golf game is finally being resolved.

He wrote, “It takes time to fix the problem, but it’s better than waiting for it to collapse entirely.”

With the PGA Tour announcing a “transaction subcommittee” that will meet with representatives of LIV and the PIF of Saudi Arabia, Mickelson has made some recent remarks.

Initially, it was stated that only Tiger Woods from the PGA Tour would be present for the in-person negotiations, but it was later revealed that Rory McIlroy and Adam Scott would also be attending.

Given that McIlroy’s return to the policy board was obstructed by the aforementioned Woods, Jordan Spieth, and Patrick Cantlay, news of his involvement was unexpected.

McIlroy denied there was a falling out with Woods and maintained there were no hard feelings.
