NEW YORK (Reuters) – Greg Norman, CEO of the Liv Golf Invitational Series (LIV), a new tour backed by Saudi Arabian sovereign wealth, will meet U.S. lawmakers in Washington this week. He said he will meet with them to discuss the dispute with the PGA Tour. The Washington Post reported on the 19th.
A spokesperson for the LIV said in a statement to the newspaper that officials will visit Washington this week. “Given the PGA Tour’s attempts to thwart our efforts to reshape the world of golf, it is imperative that we educate our members about the LIV business model and counter the uncooperative efforts of the PGA Tour,” he said. I am thinking,” he said.
The report did not provide details about the lawmakers the LIV will meet.
The PGA Tour has suspended players who entered the LIV for high prize money. Several players, including 12 major winners, have participated in LIV. The U.S. Department of Justice is investigating the PGA Tour’s policies for potential antitrust violations.
