Tiger Woods rejected an offer to join the LIV Golf series

Tiger Woods has rejected an offer of $700-$800 million (Approximately) to participate in the Saudi-backed LIV Golf series.

The news came from the tour’s Ceo, Greg Norman, in an interview with Fox News aired on Monday.

The former world No.1 Norman answered Tucker Carlson when he asked him whether it is true that Woods was offered $700 – $800 million for joining the series.

“Before I became CEO, that number was available,” Norman retorted.

He also said that this number has been present there because everyone looks for the best of the best. So they must have approached them before he became CEO.

“Yes, that number is located someplace in that area,” Norman replied.

It is not the first time that Wood rejected such a huge amount of offer, as previously he has also rejected an offer like this, Norman told the Washington Post back in June.

“It was an enormously Mindblowing offer,” Norman added.

In addition, the great winner Phil Mickelson, Dustin Johnson, Bryson DeChambeau, Brooks Koepka, Sergio Garcia, Louis Oosthuizen, Graeme McDowell, Charl Schwartzel, and Martin Kaymer have also joined this program for a tremendous amount of money.

Moreover, the established PGA Tour and the DP World Tour have also been left by many players for this controversial tour.

Why is it called controversial? Because many players have criticized it, such as Rory McIlroy and Woods. They argue that it has been sponsored by a country that’s a terrible human rights history, and the players have also abandoned the traditional golf setup.

However, the LIV Golf series is organized by Saudi Arabia’s Public Investment Fund (PIF) is headed by Mohammed bin Salman, the Crown Prince of Saudi Arabia. The grand prize pledged to the winner is $250 million.

So let’s see what happens next, Will Tiger Woods accept this offer in the future, or will he remain tricked with his idea?
