LIV Golf Invitational Series Qualifies for OWGR Consideration, CEO Greg Norman says:

BROOKLINE, Massachusetts — LIV Golf CEO Greg Norman said the new track will apply to Official World Golf Ranking points on Monday.

Norman said the LIV Golf Invitational Series has a “very compelling” application after working closely with OWGR’s technical committee to understand the process.

During an interview with Fox News on Saturday night, Norman also asked if PGA Tour commissioner Jay Monahan, one of the eight members of the OWGR board of governors, would abstain from voting on LIV Golf’s application.

“It will be interesting to see if Jay Monahan pulls out of that vote because of what he said on television with [CBS Sports announcer] Jim Nantz recently,” Norman said. “So, it’s very interesting and it’s sad to, you know, put that extra pressure on because our tour is a good tour. It is supported, it has an incredible field. Our point should be that if we get the OWGR points, the rest will come naturally.”

During an interview with Nantz during the final round of the RBC Canadian Open on June 12, Monahan defended his position to suspend 17 players who defected from the Tour from joining LIV Golf, which is funded by Saudi Arabia’s Public Investment Fund.

Additional PGA Tour players, including 2020 US Open champion Bryson DeChambeau and 2018 Masters winner Patrick Reed, are expected to be included in the 48-man field for LIV Golf’s next event. It will be the first to be played in the United States, at Pumpkin Ridge in Portland, Oregon, from June 30 to July 2.

Monahan said players who participated in future LIV Golf events without a conflicting event release would face the same penalty as the 17 who were suspended.

“Why do they need us so badly?” asked Monahan about the LIV Tour on CBS Sports. “Because those players have chosen to sign multi-year lucrative contracts to play against the same players in a series of friendlies over and over again. You look at that versus what we see here today and that’s why they need us so much. You need real, pure competition The best players in the world are here at the RBC Canadian Open, with millions of fans watching, and in this game it is real and pure competition that creates the profile in the presence of the world’s best players.

“And that’s why they need us. That’s what we do. But we’re not going to let players drive away for free from our loyal members, the best players in the world.”

Other members of OWGR’s board of directors include DP World Tour CEO Keith Pelley, USGA CEO Mike Whan, R&A chief executive Martin Slumbers, PGA of America executive director Seth Waugh, Augusta National Golf Club executive director Will Jones and Keith Waters, who International Federation of PGA Tours.

Players participating in LIV Golf who are ineligible to play on other tours will not earn OWGR Points. The governing bodies of the four major championships use the OWGR standings to determine exemptions for the major golf events.

The USGA decided to keep LIV Golf players who had already qualified for this week’s tournament at The Country Club in the field, but Whan said earlier this week he could foresee a day when it will be more difficult for LIV Golf players. to do that. The players would still be eligible to enter the US Open through open qualifiers.

“I could foresee a day,” Whan said. “Do I know what that day looks like? No, I don’t know. To be honest, what are we talking about [LIV Golf] was different two years ago and two months ago it was different than now. We’ve been doing this for 127 years, so I guess [the USGA] need to look at this long term and see where these things are going. So we’re not going to rush into what we’re doing.”

Even if LIV Golf were to become a licensed tour, it would likely get fewer points due to its current format. LIV Golf events include 48-man, 54-hole fields; PGA Tour events consist of 72 holes and fields as large as 156 players.

During the interview on Fox News, Norman asked why the PGA Tour was so critical of LIV Golf when it also had sponsors who have done business with the Saudis.

“Look, I’m disappointed that people are going down that road, frankly,” Norman said. “If they want to look at it in prism, why does the PGA Tour have 23 sponsors doing $40 billion in business with Saudi Arabia? Why is it okay for the sponsors? Will Jay Monahan go to all of those CEOs of the 23 companies? who invest in Saudi Arabia and suspend and ban them? The hypocrisy in all of this, it’s so loud. It’s deafening.”
