LIV Golf, a Saudi-backed circuit founded in 2021, has been heavily criticised and accused of ‘sportswashing’ over the past year, especially by Golf Channel analyst Chamblee.
The 60-year-old has been particularly critical of PGA Championship winner Koepka, who joined the tour last summer.
Chamblee is yet to speak out about the new LIV Golf-PGA development, but Koepka has already poked fun at the pundit.
The Florida-born golfer simply tweeted: “Welfare Check on Chamblee.”
Fans were quick to react, with many finding it hilarious.
One person responded: “Tweet of the year.”
Another added: “Legend.”
A third wrote: “Okay this is good.”
A fourth tweeted: “Best tweet ever.”
While another added: “Brooks with the tweet of the millennium.”
Paige Spiranac also reacted to the news, writing: “Phil knowing Brandel is about to have the worst day ever with the news of the tour merging with LIV,” along with a Gif of Phil Mickelson dancing.
Speaking about the merge, PGA Tour commissioner Jay Monahan said: “After two years of disruption and distraction, this is a historic day for the game we all know and love.
“This transformational partnership recognises the immeasurable strength of the PGA Tour’s history, legacy and pro-competitive model and combines with it the DP World Tour and LIV – including the team golf concept – to create an organisation that will benefit golf’s players, commercial and charitable partners and fans.”
LIV Golf prised over the likes of Cameron Smith, Dustin Johnson and Mickelson and Koepka with mega-money playing fees on offer.
