LIV Golf commissioner, Greg Norman has come out to confirm that the controversial Saudi-backed breakaway tried to lure away Tiger Woods with $700-800million deal to join the Saudi-backed LIV golf.

He recently had his say while speaking to the press, and fans have been reacting.

According to him, it is true that Woods was approached with such huge amounts, and it is a big shame because those who have gone to LIV have clearly turned their back on what allowed them to get to the position they currently are.

Norman added that some of the players who have already joined may never get a chance to play in major championships again.

His words, “That number was out there before I became CEO. That number has been out there, yes.”

“Tiger is a needle mover. So course you got to look at the best of the best. The originally approached tiger before I became CEO so yes, that number is somewhere in that neighborhood.”

“I disagree with those who have gone to LIV, I think they have turned their back on what allowed them to get to this position.”

“Some players have never had a chance to even experience playing on one of the tours.”

“They have gone right from the amateur ranks to that organization and never really had a chance to feel what it is like to play a schedule or play in big events.”

“Some of these players may never even get a chance to play in major championships. That is a possibility. They will never get a chance to experience this right here. Walk down the fairways at Augusta National.”

“I don’t understand it. What these players are doing for guaranteed money, what is the incentive to practice? What is the incentive to go out there and earn it in the dirt?”

“You are just getting paid a lot of money up front and playing a few events and playing 54 holes.”

“They are playing blaring music. I can understand 54 holes for the Senior Tour. The guys are older and a little more banged up. When you are young, 72-hole tests are part of it. We used to have 36-hole play-offs for majors.”
