Greg Norman is aware that many people don't like him given his decision to be CEO of LIV Golf. However, he is focused on himself, his progress, as well as the progress of LIV Golf. “Look, I don’t pay attention,” Norman told foxsports.com.au “Hatred, jealousy, vindictiveness — whatever it is — that people have against you for whatever reason — they don’t know who I am.
These individuals have never sat down and talked to me for one minute. So they have their opinion and I give them their right to their opinion. But at the same time, I just cast them aside. I’ve seen it all. Some of the people who make comments about me in a negative fashion haven’t been around for 45 years”.
Greg Norman speaks about LIV Golf
Greg Norman is aware of what kind of project it is and that LIV Golf could become number 1. Norman also recalled the moment when he realized he was ready for the role and when it all started.
“It was my signature on my employment agreement back on August the 30th of last year. When I stress-tested the business model the best way I possibly could with my people that I know in the industries of economics and law, franchising and branding, nobody could break the model”.
This legendary golfer thinks he is on the right track. His friend Kerry Packer, who died about 15 years ago, is a person whose opinion would be important to him. “I can tell you this every day, with my hand on my heart, every day I know Kerry Packer has his hand on my right shoulder as a past friend — god rest his soul — saying, ‘Greg, you’re on the right path. Stay the course. You’re doing the right thing for the sport, for the players, and for the fans.’”
