Six-time major winner Phil Mickelson says the PGA Tour will have to accept losing control over the world’s best players after LIV Golf’s emergence.

Mickelson believes a compromise that allows the two circuits to co-exist is the natural outcome of the current stand-off. 

This year’s Open champion and world number three Cameron Smith, two-time major winner Dustin Johnson, and American duo Brooks Koepka and Bryson DeChambeau are also among LIV Golf’s big-money recruits.
