With Tiger Woods and Rory McIlroy voicing out their true feelings about players who defected from PGA TOUR to  LIV Golf ahead of 2022 The Open Championship, the drama at St. Andrews this week has only gotten more intense. Patrick Reed tried to add even more fuel to the fire by competing on the first day of the tournament wearing an attire that features not one, not two, but three LIV Golf logos.

Patrick Reed might be trying to make a statement here, but even if that's not the intention, the message is still strong.

Reed, who's one of the higher profile PGA TOUR players who jumped ship to the Saudi-backed breakaway LIV Golf, won nine PGA TOUR events in his career. He is seeking his second overall major event victory and first at The Open Championship. The best finish he's had so far at The Open Championship was a 10th-place campaign back in 2019. His only major win to date was at the 2018 The Masters. He is also eyeing a much better performance this time around after missing the cut at Royal St. George at the 2021 edition of The Open Championship.

Apart from Patrick Reed, some of the other LIV Golf pros competing at The Open Championship who used to be under PGA TOUR are Bryson DeChambeau, Sergio Garcia, Dustin Johnson, Kevin Na, Abraham Ancer, Brooks Koepka, Ian Poulter, and Phil Mickelson.
