Tiger Woods is clear about his intention to fight against Liv Golf. PGA Tour players held a meeting at the BMW Championship with the aim of finding the best solution. The leader of that meeting, apparently, was Tiger Woods. Justin Thomas is delighted with Woods and his dedication and has shown this time that he is a 'leader' “I think if someone like him is passionate about it, no offence to all of us, but that’s really all that matters,” Thomas said, as quoted by edmontonsun.
“If he’s not behind something, then one, it’s probably not a good idea in terms of the betterment of the game, but two, it’s just not going to work. He needs to be behind something."“I think he’s been a great kind of leading role in a lot of ways in the game, for a lot of us”.
Rory McIlroy speaks about Tiger Woods
Rory McIlroy thinks that Woods is a 'hero' and a person who knows how to act in this situation. “I think the one thing that came out of it, which I think was the purpose, is all the top players on this tour are in agreement and alignment of where we should go going forward, and that was awesome,” McIlroy said.
“I mean, he is the hero that we’ve all looked up to,” said McIlroy. “His voice carries further than anyone else’s in the game of golf. His role is navigating us to a place where we all think we should be." Justin Thomas is happy about the passion with which Woods does the job. “I think he came because it was very important to him,” said Thomas.
“It probably was just not something that he felt was appropriate to do over Zoom or just to call in. I think it shows how passionate he is about golf and wanting to improve it and paving the way for the next generation of young players to come out down the road”.
