Tiger Woods has always been humble to his fellow golfers and his fans. But LIV Golf Chief, Greg Norman, feels a little different than that. Norman once talked about a time when he specially went to Woods’ house to personally give a letter to the golfer. But how did Woods respond to it?

Norman is currently running the LIV Golf league and is all set to take it to new heights. Because of his strategies, LIV Golf is now posing a serious threat to the PGA Tour. But there is still one man who Norman has not been able to win over, and it’s the 15-time major winner Tiger Woods.

Norman and Woods have had a flakey relationship over the years. The LIV Golf CEO once talked about how he drove to Woods’ residence to give him a letter to congratulate him for winning the Masters Championship. However, he didn’t get any response from the golfer about it. “When Tiger won The Masters this year, I wrote him a handwritten note and drove down my road, maybe a quarter of a mile, and hand-delivered it to his guard at his gate,” Norman said.

He added that he talked to Woods’ guard and said “can you please hand-deliver it to him?” But the golfer hasn’t replied to the letter yet, nor did he reach out to Norman to acknowledge receiving the letter. “maybe Tiger just dislikes me.” Norman said.
