LIV Golf CEO Greg Norman Discusses Possibility of Women’s Tour
Greg Norman, CEO of LIV Golf, recently discussed the possibility of creating a women‘s tour for the Saudi–backed circuit during an interview ahead of LIV‘s Australian debut in Adelaide. “That is a discussion we have internally on a regular basis,” Norman said. “I have personally had discussions with individual LPGA Tour players, Ladies European Tour players, the Ladies European Tour.
They love what our product is showcasing. They ask all the time, ‘how can we get involved?’ We‘d love to see a LIV ladies series.”
However, Norman was quick to add that the priority for now is to focus on the men‘s tour, which is only in its second year.
“From our perspective, last year was a beta season. We had eight events. This year was our first season where we‘re kicking off,” he said. “We can only drink out of a fire hydrant so much, so we have a lot of opportunities and initiatives coming across our plate.”
The rebel league has already attracted several big names from the PGA Tour, including major winners Dustin Johnson, Phil Mickelson, Brooks Koepka, and Cameron Smith.
Whether or not the league decides to launch a women‘s tour in the near future remains to be seen, but Norman‘s comments suggest that it is something they are actively exploring.
