Tiger Woods on ‘solving the LIV Golf and the PGA Tour problem’: “They have to..”
LIV Golf and the PGA Tour are still at war. Both sides want supremacy on the golf scene, and in such an atmosphere it is difficult for either side to be ‘completely’ powerful. Fans are mostly on the side of tradition, ie the PGA Tour, but there are also those who support LIV Golf; a competition that is financed by Saudi Arabia, and which causes many controversies.
One of the key people who joined the fight against LIV Golf is Tiger Woods and Rory McIlroy. They are especially bothered by Greg Norman, the man who is one of the creators of LIV Golf, even though he himself was part of the PGA Tour.
At the press conference before the Hero World Challenge, Tiger Woods spoke about the ‘potential cooperation’ between LIV Golf and the PGA Tour. “Not right now. Not with their leadership. Not with Greg there and his animosity towards the Tour itself.
I don’t see that happening. As Rory said and I said it as well, Greg’s got to leave”. – Tiger Woods said, as quoted by golfmonthly.com
Tiger Woods on LIV Golf and PGA Tour: They’ve got to put a stay on it
Tiger Woods believes that in the current atmosphere of ‘war’ between these two Tours, things can hardly be favorable for both sides.
Especially if we take into account the litigations. The solution is still not in sight. Such a situation does no one any good. “I see that there’s an opportunity out there if both organisations put a stay on their litigation, but that’s the problem, they’ve got to put a stay on it.
And whether or not they do that or not, there’s no willingness to negotiate if you have a litigation against you. So if they both have a stay and then have a break and then they can meet and figure something out, then maybe there is something to be had. ”
