The LIV Golf Series is an upstart professional golf circuit organizers hope to position as a player-power-focused alternative to the PGA Tour, which has been, for decades, the most historically-based level of pro golf.

The LIV Golf Series is funded by the public investment fund, the sovereign wealth fund of Saudi Arabia, which consistently has been in the news for its human rights policies.

Since its creation, many talented and recognizable golfers have moved to join the new tour.

That led the MaineStay Media/VillageSoup sports staff to ask, in its latest poll: How do you feel about the new LIV Tour, which has lured golfers, including big-name players, away from the PGA?

Vote here.

In a previous poll, voters were asked how far the Boston Celtics would advance in the National Basketball Association playoffs?

Forty percent said the Celtics would lose in the conference finals. Another 30 percent said they would lose in the conference semifinals. Thirty percent said it was time to warm up the duck boats and get ready to hoist banner 18 because it was “championship all the way, baby.”

The Celtic, ultimately, won the conference title and lost four games to two to the Golden State Warriors in the NBA championship series.
