Rory McIlroy had resigned from the board in November amid frustrations 

The Northern Irishman was to replace Webb Simpson on the PGA Tour board 

But the board’s remaining members voted against electing McIlroy to the role 

Tiger Woods has reportedly voted against Rory McIlroy’s re-inclusion to the PGA Tour policy board as the organisation looks to negotiate a deal with the Saudi Arabian-backed breakaway league LIV Golf. 

It had been confirmed on Thursday that McIlroy, who resigned from his position on the PGA Tour board in November amid frustrations over the role, would not be returning to the position with the World No 2 stating that ‘old wounds had re-opened’.

Webb Simpson, who will resign from his post on both the PGA Tour policy board and his position as a director of PGA Tour Enterprises, had indicated that McIlroy was to take over both of his positions. 

Despite that, The Telegraph reports that the remaining five player-executives on the board – which comprises of Tiger Woods, Patrick Cantlay, Peter Malnati, Adam Scott and Jordan Spieth – had voted against the decision to re-integrate McIlroy. 

The outlet claims that Woods, a long-standing ally of McIlroy’s, was one of those who voted against the four-time major winner’s inclusion, with the votes being cast 3-2 for the 35-year-old to be excluded from the board. The other two members who voted against McIlroy’s re-inclusion are not yet known

It appears that after holding talks with the current board members over a return, McIlroy’s vision of a merger with LIV Golf’s backers – the £60billion Saudi Arabian Public Investment Fund – did not fit with those of the board. 

While McIlroy has previously urged golf’s feuding factions to reach an agreement over the peace talks. But that has come contrary to the views of Woods who has previously claimed that the PGA Tour doesn’t need LIV’s cash, following the PGA’s recent deal with the Strategic Sports Group.

‘Financially, we don’t [need that] right now. The monies that they have come to the table with and what we initially had agreed to in the framework agreement, those are all the same numbers. Anything beyond this is going to be obviously over and above. We’re in a great position right now.’

Having been one of the breakaway circuit’s staunchest cricits, McIlroy has made a U-turn on his previous views, claiming that the PGA Tour and LIV Golf need to reach an agreement quickly and that golf’s current ecosystem was ‘not sustainable’. ‘I think I can be helpful,’ he said in April, when asked what he could bring to the board amid the negotiation talks.

It comes amid reports from Golf Digest that Woods and McIlroy’s relationship has ‘soured over the past six months’ yet ‘remains cordial’.
