Fans reacting to the battle of the Major’s title between the rival tours

Caddie Network on Twitter posted a video captioned, “Does a @PGATOUR or @LIVGolfInv player win the 2023 Masters?” In the video, a boat was filled with LIV stars heading towards the Masters in April. A clear mockery and portrayal of the joy that LIV Golf is currently experiencing, that tweet has clearly ignited a social media war between the fans of both tours; after all, it’s the Masters that we are talking about.

A Twitter handle commented, “No love for the amateurs?” Clearly, the young players of LIV Golf have a lot of eyes on them. For some people the Masters is more about entities than the Tours. A fan of LIV star, Cameron Smith, wrote “There is only one player who can achieve this, Cameron Smith. All the others would not even be close.

The comment section has become a total battle ground of mockeries. One of the Twitter handle mocking LIV golf wrote, “Doubtful don’t the liv players only start on a Friday so disqualified for not playing Thursday.” People not only made their choice clear but they also added a bit of humor in their tweets. One such fan commented, “LIV DJ is going to win just to remind everyone he don’t care about what tour he is on…he can whip some booty!!
