Cam Smith, Dustin Johnson, Phil Mickelson, and all the LIV Golf stars could take a leaf out of the stance taken by the World Cup Socceroos. Super rich LIV pro golfers need to stand up for human rights in the country they source their wages from – Saudi Arabia. If these Middle East nations want to be associated with elite western sports, then, their record on human rights has to be accounted for and cleaned up. Autocratic regimes that operate in contravention of the UN’s standards on human rights for women, LGBTQI+, ethnic minorities, and religious freedoms cannot be involved in world sports like golf as things currently stand.
