LIV Golf CEO Greg Norman told Tucker Carlson on Fox News Monday night that Tiger Woods turned down an offer from the new golf league that would have paid him roughly $700-$800 million.
“That number was out there before I became CEO,” Norman replied. “So, that number’s been out there, yes. Look, Tiger’s a needle mover, right?” Norman said talking about Tiger Woods’ star power.
Previously, Norman had told other outlets that Woods was offered huge money to participate but turned it down.
While Norman and LIV couldn’t snag Woods away from the PGA Tour they have signed Phil Mickelson, Dustin Johnson, Bryson DeChambeau, Brooks Koepka, Sergio Garcia, Louis Oosthuizen, Graeme McDowell, Charl Schwartzel and Martin Kaymer to the new start up.
Woods has been critical of the new league and players who joine.
