Architect of PGA-LIV framework agreement resigns in frustration: 'No meaningful progress' toward a deal

Jimmy Dunne, the man at the center of last summer’s surprise framework agreement between the PGA Tour and LIV Golf, has resigned from the PGA Tour’s policy board, according to Sports Illustrated.

According to a letter obtained by SI, Dunne wrote “no meaningful progress has been made towards a transaction with PIF” and that players who have seized control of the board have made “my vote and my role is utterly superfluous.”

It was last June when PGA Tour commissioner Jay Monahan and Yassir Al-Rumayyan, who oversees the Saudi Arabian Public Investment Fund (PIF) that backs LIV Golf, stunned the entire golf world — players included — when they announced a framework agreement was in the works to bring the two competing tours back together. Dunne was one of the people in middle of those negotiations.
