Greg Norman denied rumors of money being offered to Tiger Woods

The golf world was shocked when they heard the rumors about the figure that was offered to Tiger Woods to become part of LIV Golf. Namely, Norman admitted that it was a 9-digit number. “(The offer was) mind-blowingly enormous; we’re talking about high nine digits,” Norman said before two months.

However, Greg Norman has now changed the story and revealed additional things. “To be honest, we don’t comment on any past or current offers to any players, but obviously the media picks up on information, tid bits, white noise, and they run with it,” Norman told foxsports.com.au.

“I just want to make sure for clarification here, the numbers that were thrown out were inclusive of future franchise value. And so if you take a look at this number that’s being thrown out there ... the generational wealth that this franchise opportunity has for the individual players is incredible.

That’s how it is. It’s not the cash value. We never offered that cash value to Tiger Woods. That’s the reality of it”.

Greg Norman's goal

The Official World Golf Ranking (OWGR) is the next goal for Norman and the team.

They want to be part of OWGR. “I think it’s important for the sustainability of the OWGR, to be honest with you. LIV Golf is a proven platform with very significant players with very high ranking points with a very proven model that works.

So I think, really, the onus is on the OWGR as an independent organisation to see that LIV Golf is worthy of these ranking points because of what we’ve produced and what we’ve done. We’ve done all the right things.

LIV is living up to it, LIV is proving it. So it’s up to the independent board, the independent chairman. I’m confident they’ll sit back and see that the LIV Golf League (from 2023) and the LIV Golf Invitational Series we’ve done today is worthy and warranted of OWGR points”.
