Phil Mickelson sent exactly the tweet you'd think upon news of the PGA Tour-LIV merger


News of the PGA Tour-LIV Golf merger has sent shockwaves not just through the golf world, but the entire sports world on Tuesday morning. For Phil Mickelson, it was just another day of being right.

Lefty has been adamant that the truth would come to light eventually, that LIV Golf would ultimately be a good thing for the sport and it's "global growth." After plenty of initial resistance, it appears PGA Tour commissioner Jay Monahan, as well as DP World Tour commissioner Keith Pelley, have succumbed to that fact.

Upon reading the news, Mickelson sent exactly the tweet you'd expect him to send:

Simple, to the point, and, in all honesty, kind of classy for a guy who loves to brag and dunk the basketball any chance he gets. We're sure he'll get around to doing that in due time, but for now he's just smiling, nodding, and very likely thumbs-upping himself in the mirror. Give it an hour, and #PhilWasRight will be trending. 

Here was fellow LIV golfer and PGA champion Brooks Koepka's take:

Straight for the jugular. Man needed a win after his Florida Ps took an absolute beating last night to go down 2-0 in the Stanley Cup Final. 

Below is a mix of reactions from the rest of the golf world:

What a wild time to be alive (and also to be a golf fan).
