The debate over who to tee off for — the storied PGA Tour or the new LIV Golf — is driving a wedge between professional golfers, as players across the sport decide if it's best to stick with tradition or take a swing at a potential gold mine.

A civil war is emerging between players who are sticking with their tour cards and others who are ripping them up to play for the Saudi Arabia-backed LIV Golf Invitational Series, led by former world No. 1 golfer Greg Norman.
