Only 3.5k people currently watching LIV golf on YouTube

On the final day no less. This thing has to fold after this year right? It’s not sustainable.

I checked on Thursday and there was 60k watching.

They don't care about views right now.
They also sold out of tickets for Saturday's rd.

Way too much money invested. It won’t make a profit for a while but the more golfers they poach from the PGA, and if they get a tv deal, things will turn around.

They haven't started playing yet Einstein. A lot of folks are watching off their LIV network as well in this country. Canada and many other countries are actually watching off their own Supersports channels.

Over an hour before they Tee off? That is infinitely more people than what the PGA tour gets an hour before the first tee time.

The more money they spend the more convinced I am that it is nothing more than just a pure money laundering scheme.

At least pride is somewhat educated on LIV despite hating it.

There are a ton of 2nd hand streams on YouTube. A lot of unofficial fake accounts titled "LIV Golf Portland" have streams for whatever reason.
I always go to the official channel for the stream (once it's started) - LIV Golf

Money laundering? How does paying golfers launder money?

And who is benefiting? The total purse for the winners today is 25 million dollars. That's 7.5 million dollars more lucrative than the best-paying major in existence.

And who should the guys like Justin Thomas and Alfalfa Mcllroy be most thankful to for a complete change in PGA winner's purses and a new shortened schedule?

That's right, LIV.

Sustainable in the sense that the financier is never going bankrupt, but that doesn’t mean there won’t be a point (and possibly quickly) that they realize it’s a lost cause and shut it down. Clearly there isn’t the traction they hoped for with the initial (expensive) signings. No fan interest no advertising no revenue. They have to spend a lot more money on Top 15 players. The cost of poaching is only going to go up

I’m convinced a decent amount of the player field that signed did so knowing it was never going to last. Get paid beyond belief and after a few years go win your PGA card back much, much richer

Because people aren't watching fake streams of yesterday's round?
