Trump’s National Golf Club Bedminster will host its first tournament later this month.

In October, the LIV Tour will wind up its season at Trump’s signature Florida course, Trump National Doral Miami.
The tournaments are expected to pump millions of dollars into Trump’s golf empire.
The LIV Tour is controversial for a number of reasons, particularly that’s it’s funded by Saudi Arabia.
The kingdom has a poor human rights record and a group of Saudi Operatives murdered Washington Post columnist and Saudi dissident Jamal Khashoggi in Istanbul nearly four years ago.
Meanwhile, Jupiter Island’s Tiger Woods says golfers who joined the Saudi-backed LIV Golf tour have turned their back on the PGA Tour. Tiger said, “I just don’t see how that move is positive in the long term for a lot of these players.”

After a practice round ahead of the British Open, Woods said he believes LIV commissioner Greg Norman has damaged the game. Two-time British Open winner, Greg Norman, has been disinvited to The Open in Scotland. Tiger is scheduled to tee off tomorrow morning around 10 at St. Andrews.
