The PGA Tour and Saudi-backed LIV Golf have been entrenched in a rivalry for over two years, but golf legend Fred Couples doesn’t seem to think there’s much of a rivalry at all.

During an interview leading up to the Masters this week, Fred Couples offered a brutally honest assessment of LIV Golf compared to the PGA Tour, making it clear that he simply does not understand the hype regarding LIV.

“I don’t think I’ll ever understand it. Maybe I’ll go to one and see what it’s really, really like. I know how great they are as players.

“Now, everything can get better, but let me tell you, if the LIV Tour is better for golf, I’m missing something there. But again, I’m not here to bash them anymore. I’m going to see them all tonight (at the Champions Dinner)… I love DJ. I love Brooks. I don’t know if they even comment on the LIV Tour. They just play golf.
