The PGA Tour players have been accusing Greg Norman and the LIV Golf players of being part of a series backed by Saudi Arabia. Even fans have been against the LIV golfers for supporting Saudi Arabia’s business despite their alleged involvement in the 9/11 attacks.
Greg Norman has a completely different point of view towards the situation. According to the LIV Golf CEO, “The PGA Tour has 27 sponsors who do $40 billion worth of business on an annual basis in Saudi Arabia.”
Greg uncovered that one of the largest sponsors of the Women’s Tour is Aramco. Also known as Saudi Aramco, the company is the currently the most valued in the world (even above Apple), and deals in public petroleum and natural gas in Saudi Arabia.
Norman added, “Not one word is being said about them. Right? But why is it, why is it on the guys? Why are we the ogres? What have we done wrong? We’re independent contractors. We have a right to play wherever we want in the world, for whatever we want!”
As of now, no players face restrictions from entering the Ryder Cup Tournament. The Director of the Ryder Cup, Guy Kinnings, gave a statement regarding the matter. He said, “There are legal appeals ongoing, and until such time the players are entitled to play;”
