Woods publicly backed the PGA Tour amid a flood of defections earlier this summer season, saying forward of the Open Championship, “I disagree with (gamers leaping to LIV). I believe that what they’ve carried out is that they’ve turned their again on what has allowed them to get to this place.
“Some of these players may not ever get a chance to play in major championships. That is a possibility. We don’t know that for sure yet. It’s up to all the major championship bodies to make that determination. But that is a possibility that some players will never, ever get a chance to play in a major championship, never get a chance to experience (the Open Championship), walk down the fairways at Augusta National. That, to me, I just don’t understand it.”
Woods declined a proposal of greater than $700 million to affix LIV, Norman stated in a Fox News interview this month.
