Speaking to the Son Of A Butch podcast, Pat Perez was pretty furious about Tiger Woods and his comments. The reason is that Woods criticized LIV Golf. “It’s one of the stupidest things I think he has said.” – Perez said, as quoted by golfmonthly.com Tiger Woods made interesting comments about LIV Golf a few weeks ago, and the fact that Pat Perez had to react shows that he made LIV Golfers quite angry.
“But what these players are doing for guaranteed money, what is the incentive to practice? What is the incentive to go out there and earn it in the dirt? You’re just getting paid a lot of money up front and playing a few events and playing 54 holes.
They’re playing blaring music and have all these atmospheres that are different. ”- Woods said. Pat Perez’s swing coach, Harmon also reacted and believes that what Tiger Woods is talking about can be noticed in others.
“The money aspect of it, for me, it’s so interesting to watch people talk about that, fixate on that, but the football stadiums in the NFL are filled. Baseball stadiums, people go watch. Basketball, people go watch.
They’re now paying college athletes. The colleges in America, you know, the money that Alabama brings in for amateur football, not even professional football. And nobody has any problem with any of that. And then obviously Tiger Woods coming out and talking about where is the incentive to practice and play with guaranteed money.“
Pat Perez reacted
“That’s the stupidest s**t I have ever heard of in my life.”
Pat Perez also recalled Tiger Woods’ sponsorship contracts “That’s one of the stupidest things I think he has said. The incentive is the fact that last place is 120,000, first place is four million. You cannot win four million on the PGA Tour.
Now, next year you might; they finally got the perks. But last time I checked, he signed a $40 million deal right out of college, was flying on the Nike jet. He found incentive. He could have shut it down right then. “
