Reason why Greg Norman fires back at Tiger Woods, in LIV Golf controversy: ‘He doesn’t know the facts’

Greg Norman fires back at Tiger Woods in LIV Golf controversy: ‘He doesn’t know the facts’

As the war of words – and lawsuits – between the PGA Tour and LIV Golf continue into the new year, Greg Norman says he’s more concerned about the fledgling tour’s business interests than its feud with golf’s establishment. 

The two sides have filed legal action against each other after several established PGA Tour stars – including Phil Mickelson, Dustin Johnson, Bryson DeChambeau and Brooks Koepka – jumped to the rival tour last year. The relationship has become so adversarial, Tiger Woods said in November the only way to get the two sides talking again is for Norman to step down as LIV Golf CEO.

Appearing Saturday night on Fox News Channel’s “One Nation with Brian Kilmeade,” Norman said Woods “doesn’t know the facts … because, obviously, I’m still here.”

Norman also said Woods’ words won’t have any impact on how his company does business.

Just making those comments, I think, is an indication that he might be a bit of a mouthpiece for the PGA Tour to try and do – to get us to create – or get turmoil, create it internally within LIV,” Norman said.

“But it’s not happening. We are fully entrenched. We know where we’re going. We know what we’re doing.”
