Greg Norman: Despite the obstacles by the PGA Tour, we will not give up!

Greg Norman is a man who has suffered great criticism and condemnation for the LIV Golf International series as he is the CEO and commissioner of LIV Golf. This time Norman is furious over the PGA Tour which banned players from competing in the LIV Golf "Sadly, the PGA Tour seems intent on denying professional golfers their right to play golf, unless it's exclusively in a PGA Tour tournament," said Norman, as quoted by skysports.

"This is particularly disappointing in light of the Tour's non-profit status, where its mission is purportedly 'to promote the common interests of professional tournament golfers.' LIV Golf is a serious project supported by Saudi Arabia, and that is what bothers most.

"Instead, the Tour is intent on perpetuating its illegal monopoly of what should be a free and open market. "The Tour's action is anti-golfer, anti-fan, and anti-competitive. But no matter what obstacles the PGA Tour puts in our way, we will not be stopped.

We will continue to give players options that promote the great game of golf globally."

PGA Tour reaction: Tour members are not authorized to participate..

The PGA Tour has issued a statement banning its players from competing in the LIV Golf International series.

We will see what reactions will follow from other important people. "We have notified those who have applied that their request has been declined in accordance with the PGA Tour Tournament Regulations,"- he said.

"As such, Tour members are not authorized to participate in the Saudi Golf League's London event under our Regulations. "As a membership organization, we believe this decision is in the best interest of the Tour and its players."

We don't know if there will be any changes, but Norman and the team do not want to give up their intentions, and this will take time. There is a lot of money in LIV Golf, and that is what attracts most.
