No matter how much fans have criticized LIV Golf over the past months, the Saudi League’s growth has been unstoppable. Thanks to Greg Norman and LIV officials, players from all over the world from several leagues have now joined the circuit. However, as per LIV Golf’s long-term goals, this is just the beginning!
LIV Golf is very close to celebrating its first anniversary next month after a successful season. But despite having spent so long in the golf industry, Norman’s league is still in the same war of words with the PGA Tour. However, a recent revelation about LIV’s future plans might result in a potential resolution between the two tours. But how?

Ever since Greg Norman launched LIV Golf, the game of golf hasn’t been the same. With tons of top players from the PGA Tour transitioning to the new league, the golf world witnessed a huge divide between pros as well as fans. However, despite their contrary beliefs, fans absolutely loved watching players from both leagues competing on the same ground at the PGA Championship and at the Masters.
Clearly, the involvement of both tours in common tournaments is a huge source of entertainment for the fans. And keeping that in mind, LIV Golf recently revealed how it plans to move forward with the PGA Tour on the other side of the court. Talking about the case, here’s what a LIV Golf executive had to say, as per SI:
“We’re not going anywhere…There’s an opportunity for more teams, the opportunity to cross-pollinate from an all-star PGA Tour team that might have the top four FedEx players coming to compete in every event or our top four players playing in the Players Championship, whatever it might be”.
Well, LIV Golf has never been against working with the PGA Tour in the past. But on the other hand, the PGA Tour has strongly condemned the idea of shaking hands with the Saudi League. However, as per LIV’s recent statements, they are clearly seeing a potential future to work hand-in-hand with the American Tour.

The CEO of the billion-dollar project, Greg ‘Shark’ Norman, has been doing everything in his might to grow his league. And as fans already know, the golf legend successfully lured in some of the best players in the world from the PGA Tour to his short-schedule program. However, when asked about how things would be going forward in the league, he revealed that there is still a ‘long list’ of players waiting to join in! “It’s incredible the amount of players who want to come on board. It would surprise you how good those names are,” Norman said.
On the contrary, LIV rebel and PGA Championship winner Brooks Koepka refused to reveal any such details about new admissions in the league. “I haven’t spoken to anybody that’s on that level to be like, hey, are you coming over to play? It’s not my style,” he spoke.
Coming to think of it, do you believe that there’s a chance for LIV Golf and PGA Tour to work together in the future? Or will the Saudi League bring in more PGA Tour players with their hefty paychecks? Let us know in the comments section!
