Inside the Saudi Situation

Alan Shipnuck on LIV, Phil, and professional golf's crossroads

Episode 110: Inside the Saudi Situation The Golfer's Journal Podcast

Alan Shipnuck puts it plainly: “The professional game is at a crossroads. This is a monumental moment.”

Shipnuck joins the TGJ Podcast to unpack all the factors at play with LIV Golf, including money, ego, legacy, morals and the PGA Tour’s own culpability in creating competition. He also takes us into the phone call with Phil Mickelson that became national news and ultimately forced Phil into hiding.

For more on the Phil saga, check out an excerpt from Shipnuck’s new book, Phil: The Rip-Roaring (and Unauthorized!) Biography of Golf’s Most Colorful Superstar, which relives Mickelson’s nightmarish collapse on the 72nd hole at Winged Food. Available exclusively to TGJ Members.
