Everyone says LIV is not "competitive". Everyone points to the LIV aspect without the cut and the short fields.

Golf fans aren't thrilled about Westwood ruining the PGA Tour.
"I'm really disappointed Lee, you're chasing money when you don't need it,"
Westwood, 49, said his age played a role in his decision to sign with LIV Golf.
"Obviously my age was part of my decision-making process," he said.
“Then there's the fact that LIV tournaments are 54 holes, not 72. I saw that as an advantage. I also looked at the schedule of tours for seniors.
