Tiger Woods has previously stated that he has no plans to switch from the PGA Tour to the LIV Golf Invitational Series, but it appears that he is forgoing a lucrative payday.
Greg Norman, the CEO of LIV Golf, revealed to Tucker Carlson that the new tour had made Woods a $700–$800 million offer to leave the established circuit.
The offer made to Woods was “mind-blowingly enormous,” Norman had said in June, adding, “we’re talking about high nine digits.” The precise range has now been made known.
The Saudi Arabian government, which has a history of violating human rights and has been charged with sportswashing, provides financial support for LIV Golf. Woods has not been tempted to join the tour, despite many well-known golfers doing so for the money.
