Golf Channel Podcast with Rex & Lav: What Masters invite really means for LIV player Joaquin Niemann

Roundtable: Analyzing Rory's global tour comments
The Golf Today roundtable breaks down Rory McIlroy's vision for a Champions League-style world golf tour, examining if the concept is realistic and somethin fans would want to see.

With the year’s first major less than two months away, the Masters made some news on Wednesday by announcing that LIV player Joaquin Niemann was one of three players to receive a special invitation.

Does this represent a thawing of relations with LIV Golf?

Or did ANGC weigh other factors besides his tour affiliation?

We dive in on this week’s midweek edition of the Golf Channel Podcast with Rex & Lav:

02:30: YEAH, BUT ...: Two words were absent from the press release: “LIV Golf”.

08:00: WHAT ABOUT THE BEST OF THE REST?: Niemann in, Talor Gooch out: Does he have a legitimate gripe?

12:30: PIE-IN-THE-SKY STUFF: Mapping out what a “global tour” would look like.
