Tiger Woods takes action. According to American media, the main players of the American and North American PGA Tour met on Tuesday to discuss the dispute between the circuit and the new opposition series LIV Golf, financed by Saudi funds. Leaving Florida, Woods and colleague Rickie Fowler were to meet the players on the sidelines of the BMW Championship in Delaware State. According to several U.S. media outlets, Woods and the top 20 players on the PGA Tour would discuss their strategy to fight LIV Golf, which consistently pulls players out of the tour with lucrative multimillion-dollar contracts.
The golf world has been in turmoil since the launch of the LIV Golf this year. Tiger Woods, who reportedly turned down $700-800 million to join the opposition league, is one of his loudest critics. The 46-year-old has always reaffirmed his commitment to the PGA Tour and said he has no intention of following other Major winners such as Phil Mickelson, Bryson DeChambeau, Sergio Garcia and Dustin Johnson who did not participate.

“I do not agree“Woods said ahead of the British Open in July.”I think what they did was turn their back on anyone who brought them to this level.He added that players participating in LIV Golf may not have it.Never a chance to make it to the Majors“Some players, such as Dustin Johnson, Brooks Koepka and Bryson DeChambeau, who were normally expected to be in the BMW Championship, stage two of the FedEx Cup playoffs, were not allowed to compete to qualify for LIV Golf.
This meeting between Tiger Woods and the PGA Tour’s main players comes a week after a judge dismissed three players from the opposing league who wanted to qualify for the final stages of the PGA Tour, despite being suspended by their organizers.
