Sen. Blumenthal Opens Inquiry Into PGA Tour’s Agreement with Saudi-Backed LIV Golf, Citing Risks of Foreign Government Influence

Sen. Richard Blumenthal (D-Conn.) has opened an inquiry into the PGA Tour's agreement with the Saudi-backed LIV Golf, citing concerns about the influence of the Saudi government and the risks posed by a foreign government entity assuming control over a cherished American institution. He has requested a slew of records related to the agreement from the two sports organizations to shed light on the behavior of the Saudi Public Investment Fund, the PGA Tour's tax-exempt status, and any law enforcement investigations. The results of the inquiry and its implications for the agreement remain to be seen.
