LIV CEO Greg Norman doesn’t care about criticism from PGA Tour golfers Tiger Woods and Rory McIlroy.

As the feud between the two tours escalates, Norman said he doesn’t pay attention to anything Woods and McIlroy say.

Earlier this week, Woods said Norman “has to go,” the same sentiment McIlroy expressed last month.

‘I don’t pay attention to McIlroy and Woods, do I?’ Norman told Today’s Golfer on Saturday. They have their agenda for whatever reason. They are saying what they mean. It has no relation or effect on me. I’m going to be with LIV for a long, long period of time.

The new tour, backed by the Saudis, has taken away many PGA golfers due to higher financial payouts.

Meanwhile, golfers loyal to the PGA Tour have been upset by the way LIV, led by Norman, operates.

There is also the matter of both parties filing a lawsuit against the other.

Woods said the two tours cannot find peace until Norman is removed from his leadership role.

Woods has been one of the highest-profile players to speak out against the Saudi-funded LIV series.

“I see an opportunity if both organizations drop their litigation,” Woods said Tuesday at the Hero World Challenge, where he is hosting the event.

But that’s the problem: they have to suspend it. And whether they do or not, there is no willingness to negotiate if you have litigation against you.

So if you both have a stay and then a break and then you can get together and figure something out, then maybe there’s something to have. But I think Greg has to go, first of all, and then obviously the litigation against us and then our countersuit against them would have to be dropped as well. Then we can talk, we can all talk freely.’

Woods’ comments were similar to those made by McIlroy at the DP World Tour Championship last month.

Rory McIlroy asked Greg Norman to step down as LIV CEO and Woods echoed that.

“So I think there are a few things that need to happen,” McIlroy said. “Obviously, there are two lawsuits right now: PGA Tour versus LIV, and there’s this one coming up with the DP World Tour in February. Nothing will happen if those two things continue, especially… yes, you are limited in what you can do.

“And then I think whatever happens with those two things, there are some things that I would like to see on the LIV side that need to happen. I think Greg has to go. I think he just needs to exit stage left. He’s left his mark, but I think now is the right time to say, look, you’ve got this unstuck, but no one’s going to talk unless there’s an adult in the room that he can try to fix. fences.’

Norman believes that he can be the one to fix things despite what Woods and McIlroy think.

“Of course it can happen under my leadership,” Norman told Today’s Golfer. ‘I mean, Tiger could be a messenger, right? Who knows. All I know is that we’re going to keep doing what we’re doing with LIV, and we’re going to keep going.’

In fact, the two-time Grand Slam winner and World Golf Hall of Famer says he’s doing a solid job running LIV.

“No matter where I go in the world, no one, not one person, has ever said that what I’m doing is stupid or wrong,” Norman said.
