Ryan Armor didn't mince words when criticizing the PGA Tour changes

Ryan Armor is just one of a number of golfers who are disappointed with the current situation on the golf scene. The PGA Tour and its moves shock many. Fans believe that these changes will destroy lower-ranked players, as well as their potential.

“I’m going to catch heat for this,” Armour told Golf Digest, as quoted by golfmonthly.com “But I was talking with James Hahn and we went into detail about how we need to rewrite our mission statement and take out the part about the tour creating playing opportunities for its members.

I guess we’re not doing that anymore. They just c*****d on everything (former PGA Tour commissioner) Deane Beman stood for”.

Ryan Armor gave interesting comparisons that talk about the senselessness of certain changes.

However, PGA Tour leaders are clear in their intentions and want to raise the level of the tour to a higher level. We will see if they really succeed in that. “Guys who keep their cards, they’re good players, but they’re not going to have a chance to play the playoffs,” Armour said.

“They’re not getting into any of the designated events. But they want those players to go be mules for you at all the Pro-Ams, all the charity visits, all the hospital visits and sponsor events. And we’re good enough to do that, but we’re not good enough to play in designated events like we did this year? Say you finished 75th on the points list, just using that as an example.

Yes, you had a really good year, but you don’t get in any of the designated events. Why wouldn't you take a LIV contract? You've just been told by the tour that you fought for and were loyal to that we don't want you”.
