Phil Mickelson and Colt Knost had a LIV Golf and OWGR debate on Twitter that ended abruptly

The LIV Golf League seeking Official World Golf Ranking points is a conversation that has been going on for nearly a year, and it’s one that will continue for some time.

LIV applied for OWGR points in July of 2022, but no decision has been made. That can take anywhere from 12-18 months, if not longer.

There have been plenty of debates on Twitter about whether LIV deserves points, but most of them have been from fans. However, Phil Mickelson and Colt Knost got into a debate Monday, and it ended rather abruptly.

Let’s get into it.

Knost decided to reply to a discussion started by a pro-LIV account about the OWGR.

Then Mickelson joined in. He has been slowly making a return to Twitter in recent months, but this is by far his biggest interaction, and he took a jab at Knost’s employer.

Then the back-and-forth really got going.

Then Knost extended an invitation for Lefty to come on his podcast (Golf’s Subpar).

Strike one. Next pitch, including Knost bringing Greg Norman into the equation.

Strike two. Well, Knost wasn’t done trying.

However, Mickelson didn’t respond, bringing their conversation to an abrupt end.

How many times does it take for Knost to invite Mickelson on his podcast and Phil responds? The world may never know.
