Putters were left stunned after PGA chiefs revealed they were joining the Saudi-backed tour which had sparked a civil war in the game.
A meeting was held at the RBC Canadian Open on Tuesday night.
Golfers were left fuming at the feeling of being blindsided by the announcement.
And many called for the head of PGA, Jay Monahan, to stand down.
However, The Times claims things became heated between players as well.
It’s said that during a clash, McIlroy told fellow pro Grayson Murray to “just play better.”
This resulted in him telling the Northern Irishman to “f**k off.”
The report adds the pair “laughed off the incident afterwards.”
Later on, Monahan admitted the situation was extremely complex.
But he vowed the decision for PGA to merge with LIV was in everyone’s best interests.
Monahan said: “I would describe the meeting as intense, certainly heated.
“This is very complex. Obviously it’s been a very dynamic and complex couple of years and, for players, this is an awful lot to ask them to digest.
“This is a significant change for us in the direction that we were going down.
“But as I’m trying to explain and I will continue to explain as we go forward, this ultimately is a decision that I think is in the best interest of all the members of the PGA Tour.
“[It] puts us in a position of control, allows us to partner with the PIF in a constructive and productive way, to have them invest with us.”
