Golf Saudi CEO Wants LIV Golf To Have Its Own Major Championships

Golf Saudi CEO Wants LIV Golf To Have Its Own Major Championships

If one was to compile a list of the ridiculous and outrageous comments made about LIV Golf, and made by the figures involved with the Tour, then yesterday's quotes from Majed Al Sorour, the CEO of Golf Saudi, would be in contention for top spot.

With LIV Golf players slowly beginning to realise the advantages they gave up when joining the breakaway Tour - mainly being banned from the PGA Tour and unable to receive ranking points - golf's four majors sanctioning players is a serious possibility.

In response to this, Al Sorour remarkably suggested that LIV Golf could create their own major championships to compete with the established four, already steeped in reverence, tradition, and history.

For now, the Majors are siding with the Tour, and I don’t know why. If the Majors decide not to have our players play? I will celebrate.

I will create my own Majors for my players. Honestly, I think all the Tours are being run by guys who don’t understand business.

LIV Golf CEO, Greg Norman, also gave his views on golf's majors and was adamant that they should remain neutral in the ongoing feud.

“And with the majors, quite honestly, they should be Switzerland, right. If I’m a major, I want the best of the best in my field.

"They’re the four Super Bowls, four FA Cups, they’re the four whatever you want to call them that should always remain up there — Switzerland — and away from anybody.

"For them to be dragged into this quagmire, yeah, there’s going to be a lot of questions that need to be asked about that, but they should be apart from them.

"If you’re a broadcaster of any of the four majors, you should be saying to them, we want the LIV players in there, because 26 of the top 100 players, right now, today, are LIV players."
