LIV golfers file anti-trust lawsuit against PGA Tour

Hall of fame golfer Phil Mickelson and ten other golfers filed a lawsuit against the Professional Golfer’s Association Tour alleging it broke anti-trust law by suspending them from participating in tour events. The lawsuit filed Wednesday claimed the golfers have devoted the bulk of their professional careers to growing the PGA tour only to be repaid with suspensions, punishments and threats for merely playing professional golf for another organization.
