LIV Golf, man. Every single time you hear something about the Saudi-funded organization it just feels more and more unserious.
The most ridiculous recent news had LIV players attempting to sue the PGA Tour for blocking them from participating in the FedEx Cup Playoffs because of their participation with LIV.
The LIV Golf lawyer’s arguments in court on Tuesday were pretty weak. They openly admitted LIV golfers might actually be golfing for nothing. The lawyer also compared the FedEx Cup to the PGA Tour’s Super Bowl — which it totally is not. Obviously.
The argument is looking pretty weak at this point, but that’s neither here nor there. What you’re here for is this absolutely brilliant troll from Rory McIlroy.
A reporter at the St. Jude Championship asked McIlroy if the FedEx Cup is the “hardest trophy to win,” which is a question he came up with after hearing the comparisons from the hearing.
McIlroy’s response was both parts brilliant and absolutely hilarious.

“Reporter: This is a question I thought of that actually came out of that hearing and since you would know better than anybody, is this the hardest trophy to win? The FedEx Cup?
McIlroy: Is the Super Bowl the hardest trophy to win in football?
Reporter: We’re talking about golf, Rory.”
HILARIOUS. McIlroy’s immediate pan into the camera like he’s on an episode of Curb Your Enthusiasm is the best part of it all. You can just hear the music playing here.
That’s so brilliant, man. Fans were so here for it.
