The Saudi-backed LIV Golf Invitational Series will make its debut this weekend in London.
The league announced a field of 48 players, including Phil Mickelson, Dustin Johnson and Louis Oosthuizen. The league is already disrupting the dynamics in professional men’s golf and could continue to do so as its season continues. Yet, hanging above the shifting balance of power in the business of golf are the questions of ethics and morals facing players and executives who have joined the league, in light of multiple accusations against the Saudi Arabian government of alleged human rights violations.
