Lee Westwood mocked PGA Tour plans to restructure their 2024 season with more no-cut events in a perceived response to the controversial LIV Golf breakaway.
The tour has seen several high-profile defections – including Westwood, Cameron Smith and Phil Mickelson – to the Saudi Arabia Public Investment Fund-backed series.
As a consequence, LIV Golf players have been barred from PGA Tour events, while the latter strengthened its so-called 'Strategic Alliance' with the DP World Tour (formerly European Tour).
However, a Golfweek report on Wednesday suggested a radical overhaul of the PGA Tour is in line for next year.
It would see several events refashioned in the format of LIV Golf's no-cut, limited-field structure, while other tournaments would offer exemptions for those with strong ranking positions.
The news prompted Westwood to suggest its plans are hypocritical after strongly opposing LIV Golf's emergence.
I’ve spent the last year reading how good full fields and cuts are!— Lee Westwood (@WestwoodLee) March 1, 2023
"So, [you would] do away with the [World Golf Championships]. Load the [Official World Golf Ranking] in your favour," he posted on Twitter.
"[You would] create 10 limited field events just for PGA Tour members. Add to that four majors, [the] Players [Championship], [the] FedEx Cup.
"That's a full schedule for a top player. That's growing the game [winking emoji]. What Strategic Alliance?"
He added: "I've spent the last year reading how good full fields and cuts are!"
