The resignation of Joachim Niemann Alabama PGA Tour It has not gone unnoticed in Chile, where it has received various criticisms from the media. His father came out to defend him through a letter and support his decision to join the controversial LIV seriescircuit that is organized with Arab funds.

In the United States, golfers captivated by petrodollars have also been strongly questioned, especially due to the history of disputes between that country and the Middle East.

The appearance of this circuit has provoked the anger of a group of survivors of September 11 and the families of the victims, a coalition that in June sent a letter of complaint to prominent golfers such as Phil Mickelson, Dustin Johnson, Bryson DeChambeau, Patrick Reed and Kevin Na.

“As you may know, Osama Bin Laden and 15 of the 9/11/19 hijackers were Saudis. It was the Saudis who cultivated and spread the evil and hateful Islamic ideology that inspired the violent jihadis to carry out the deadly attacks of 9/11,” the statement says.

“And, most egregious, is the Kingdom that has spent 20 years in denial: lying about their activities and cowardly dodging the responsibility they bear. Yet these are their partners and, to our great disappointment, they seem pleased to be doing business with them,” he adds.

Then they state: “Given Saudi Arabia’s role in the deaths of our loved ones and those injured on 9/11, your fellow Americans, it angers us that you are so willing to help the Saudis cover up this story in your call for ‘respectability.’ When you partner with the Saudis, you become complicit in their cover-up and help give them the reputational cover they crave and are willing to pay handsomely for.”

“Saudis don’t care about golf’s deep-seated sportsmanship or its origins as a gentleman’s game built on core values ​​of mutual respect and personal integrity. They care about using professional golf to cover up their reputation and they’re paying you to help them do it.” end.

Phil Mickelson didn’t want to get into controversy, but he did respond: “I would say to everyone who has lost loved ones, lost friends on 9/11, that I have deep, deep empathy for them. I can’t stress that enough. I have deepest condolences and empathy for them.”

“It affected all of us, and those who have been directly affected, I think I cannot stress enough the empathy I have for them,” he added.
