LIV Golf CEO Greg Norman has responded to Tiger Woods call that the Australian should step down by claiming the American is a “mouthpiece” for the PGA Tour and “doesn’t know the facts”.

Speaking on Fox News’ One Nation with Brian Kilmeade, Norman said: “Well, I think, yeah, sad for Tiger. You know, unfortunately he made a comment that he doesn’t know the facts about, because obviously I’m still here. Obviously he doesn’t control what we do with LIV. So just making those comments I think is an indication that he might be a bit of a mouthpiece for the PGA Tour to try and get us to create, or get turmoil created internally within LIV.”

At the DP World Tour Championship in Dubai in November, Rory McIlroy suggested Norman should step aside to help heal the rift between LIV Golf and the PGA Tour, saying: “There’s a few things that I would like to see on the LIV side that needs to happen. I think Greg needs to go. I think he just needs to exit stage left. He’s made his mark, but I think now is the right time to sort of say, look, you’ve got this thing off the ground, but no one is going to talk unless there’s an adult in the room that can actually try to mend fences.”

Woods backed those comments shortly after. “I think Greg has to go, first of all,” Woods said.
