Tiger Woods says Greg Norman must leave LIV Golf to enable talks with the PGA Tour

Tiger Woods says Greg Norman leaving LIV Golf would enable talks to be held between the PGA Tour and the breakaway circuit; the two organisations have lawsuits against each other and Woods says there is too much “animosity” for talks to be held while Norman remains as LIV chief executive

Tiger Woods has called for Greg Norman to leave LIV Golf

Tiger Woods has echoed Rory McIlroy’s call for Greg Norman to quit as LIV Golf CEO to allow a peace settlement to be negotiated in golf’s civil war.

McIlroy and Woods have been the biggest supporters of the established tours in their battle with the Saudi-funded breakaway circuit, but McIlroy recently called for a compromise to be reached between the rival factions.

The world number one feels that will be impossible if Norman remains at the helm of LIV Golf and Woods made it clear he feels the same way.

Speaking on Tuesday at a press conference ahead of the Hero World Challenge, which he has pulled out of due to injury, Woods said: “I see that there’s an opportunity out there if both organisations put a stay on their litigation, but that’s the problem, they’ve got to put a stay on it.

“And whether or not they do that or not, there’s no willingness to negotiate if you have a litigation against you. So if they both have a stay and then have a break and then they can meet and figure something out, then maybe there is something to be had.

“But I think Greg has to go, first of all, and then obviously litigation against us and then our countersuit against them, those would then have to be at a stay as well.

“So then we can talk, we can all talk freely.”
