Tiger Woods Turned Down $700-$800 Million Offer To Join LIV Golf Series


 

Tiger Woods reportedly turned down an offer between $700 million and $800 million to join the LIV Golf Invitational Series!

During a recent interview,  LIV Golf CEO Greg Norman confirmed that the company approached Tiger Woods, 46, before he was named the new CEO and commissioner. He explained,

"That number was out there before I became CEO. So, that number's been out there, yes. Look, Tiger's a needle mover, right? So, of course, you're going to look at the best of the best. They had originally approached Tiger before I became CEO, so, yes, that number is somewhere in that neighborhood."



According to reports, Tiger Woods has been an outspoken supporter of the PGA Tour during its ongoing battle with LIV Golf. At last month's Open Championship in St. Andrews, the 15-time major champion said he supported the R&A's decision not to invite Greg Norman, a two-time winner of the event, to the 150th celebration of The Open. Woods said,

"The R&A obviously have their opinions and their rulings and their decision. Greg has done some things that I don't think is in the best interest of our game, and we're coming back to probably the most historic and traditional place in our sport. I believe it's the right thing."

Tiger Woods was also critical of players who have left the PGA Tour for LIV Golf-which is being financed by Saudi Arabia's Public Investment Fund. The controversial tour has attracted some big names from the golfing world to leave the established PGA Tour and the DP World Tour to participate for vast sums of money.

Major winners like Phil Mickelson, Dustin Johnson, Bryson DeChambeau, Brooks Koepka, Sergio Garcia, Louis Oosthuizen, Graeme McDowell, Charl Schwartzel and Martin Kaymer have all joined LIV Golf, which has offered players huge money to join.

Tiger Woods continued to share his disdain for LIV Golf and said,

"I disagree with it. I think that what they've done is they've turned their back on what has allowed them to get to this position."



During his recent interview, Greg Norman called the PGA Tour a "monopoly" and said it has created obstacles that caused LIV Golf to alter its plans for its launch. Last week, LIV Golf announced that it is expanding its series to 14 tournaments in 2023, with 48 players competing on 12 established team franchises for $405 million in purses. He explained,

"It's a monopoly. They just want to shut us down whatever way they can, so they'll use whatever leverage point they can to shut us down, and they're not. They're not going to shut us down because the product speaks for itself."
