She just attended the LIV golf pro-am. The prestigious three-day competition was held at Trump National Golf Club in Bedminster, New Jersey. Henrik Stenson, a Swedish professional golfer, took this home with him 4 million dollars First place prize while all other contestants left with money in their pockets.
Fox News interviewed Jenner about her tour participation. “It was just a really fantastic, positive attitude… all the guys seemed to be having a wonderful time and it was an excellent competition.” said the golfer. “Not only did I have a lot of fun playing, I played with Ian Poulter and Paul Casey.” The Public Investment Fund, a Saudi Arabian sovereign wealth fund that has declared war on the PGA, is the source of funding for the new tour.

Caitlyn Jenner defends LIV Golf – says competition is healthy
Jenner claimed that the level of competition is healthy and that this will force the PGA Tour to find new strategies to attract players.
“If you are on the PGA Tour and miss the cut, you will not be reimbursed for any expenses, including lodging. The PGA Tour needs to take this seriously and develop a plan for how they can all work together going forward. And I believe that’s the best course of action and ultimately golfers will benefit from it.” she betrayed.
Widespread criticism of the Saudi Arabia-sponsored tour was leveled at the alleged links between the crackdown on human rights under Sharia law and the 9/11 terrorist attacks. Given the Saudis’ public investment fun, Jenner claims the tour is drawing criticism “is incredibly hypocritical in many ways.” Walmart Inc., FedEx Corp., Uber Technologies Inc., Meta Platforms Inc. and other major US public companies have made significant investments in Saudi Arabia’s sovereign wealth fund PIF.
“Who invested most of this money, to be perfectly honest? We are most likely her. We’ve been buying oil from Saudi Arabia for years and years and years and years. With the billion dollar fund they are seriously involved in a ton of different ventures. After all, they own a sizeable stake in Boeing. Is that why people avoid Boeing planes?” mentioned Caitlyn.“The LIV tour will continue. The future of golf will be fun and lucrative, but it will also be fascinating to watch and observe what is happening on the business side of professional golf.”Jenner remarked.
