BET À DAY

Having turned down a very generous offer to join LIV, Tiger Woods decided to get involved in support of the PGA. 

That's what ESPN revealed on Monday evening. 

Woods, who would have refused an amount between 700 and 800 million $ to make the jump to the new circuit of Greg Norman financed by the Public Investment Fund from Saudi Arabia, is due to meet several players from the world's top 20 this Tuesday. 

“This is a meeting to get the top 20 players in the world on the same page about how we can continue to make the PGA Tour the best product in professional golf,” he said. anonymity one of the players who will be in the meeting.

Since its establishment, LIV has managed to seduce several big names in the sport with its big checks.

 

So, Phil Mickleson, Dustin Johnson, Bryson DeChambeau, Brooks Koepka and Bubba Watson all decided to take the plunge. Cameron Smith would be on the verge of imitating them.

“I do not agree, Woods had said on the sidelines of the British Open, earlier this summer. I think what they've done is they've turned their backs on what got them into this position.”

The PGA reacted strongly to the defection of some of its stars with heavy suspensions preventing them from taking part in its events, including Grand Slam tournaments and FedEx Cup qualifiers.

A group of 11 players have launched a lawsuit against the PGA, saying these suspensions are detrimental to them.
