Legal Battle on the Green: 21 PGA Players Seek Legal Representation

The PGA Players’ Move for Transparency
Twenty-one players on the PGA tour have hired lawyers and sent a letter to the PGA Tour Policy Board asking for full disclosure of details of proposals by potential capital partners. This response was prompted after the PGA announced negotiations with Strategic Sports Group, a private equity firm, and the intention to begin talks with the Public Investment Fund of Saudi Arabia in the near future. The law firm representing the 21 players, Susman Godfrey L.L.P, stated that the PGA Players want transparency from the PGA Tour Policy Board before making any decisions impacting the permanent structure, economics, or competitive rules of the PGA Tour. The 21 golfers being represented are Brent Grant, Tommy Gainey, Scott Piercy, Chris Stroud, James Hahn, Andrew Landry, D.J. Trahan, Richy Werenski, Grayson Murray, Chez Reavie, Danny Willett, Nate Lashley, Scott Harrington, William McGirt, Lanto Griffin, Brandon Matthews, Callum Tarren, MJ Daffue, Ryan Brehm, Dylan Frittelli, and Wesley Bryan.
