Graeme McDowell has insisted he's not sorry for joining the controversial LIV Golf series but admitted his decision has tainted his legacy 'in the short term'.

Players have been criticised for joining the series, given that the funding comes from the Saudi Arabian government.

McDowell is one of the biggest names to have joined the series and has told the Irish Independent that he has 'never had to deal' with the criticism thrown his way currently.

He said that he was not sorry to join the series, but when asked if his legacy had been tainted he added: 'In the short term it's tainted because the narrative is so negative. Eventually that narrative will have to change. How many top players are going to have to play in this thing and create a product to where you guys will start talking about golf?

'I get it. The amount of s*** that's been written about me the last six weeks, it's something I have never had to deal with in my golfing career before.'
