Rory McIlroy has once again weighed in on the seemingly never-ending and increasingly boring LIV vs PGA Tour divide by stating that both parties must come to a compromise so this storm can be put to rest.

The feud between the two tours has become increasingly tiresome in recent months and McIlroy has perhaps given the nod of acceptance that LIV is here to stay and there needs to be an agreement put in place to both can co-exist without any hostility.

The Holywood native has seemingly softened his stance on the Saudi backed organisation and a compromise must be found sooner rather than later.

“I believe there is no more time to waste,” McIlroy told Golf & Tourismo. “PGA Tour and LIV will have to find a compromise and speak for the sake of our sport. I don’t know when this can happen, certainly not tomorrow, but of course we will have to find an agreement.

“Golf is a small reality, it is not football where inside it large worlds such as Serie A, the Champions League, FIFA or UEFA coexist with each other. So, even more so, we need to stick together and find a way to ensure that in the future there are no splits like the one we are witnessing today.”

The inaugural LIV Golf season came to an end last weekend with Dustin Johnson’s 4Aces taking the team title at Trump Doral and Greg Norman has sounded another threat to the PGA Tour by stating he is aiming to recruit another seven players for the 2023 season with Ryder Cup hopefuls Patrick Cantlay, Xander Schauffele and Thomas Peters heavily linked.
