sport news LIV Golf CEO Greg Norman 'NOT expected to have a role in the PGA Tour merger' trends now
It appears 'The Shark' has lost his teeth as reports emerge that Greg Norman, the CEO and commissioner of LIV Golf, will not have a role going forward in the merged PGA-LIV league.
The bombshell announcement came today that the two sides in golf's tour war agreed to lay down their arms and join forces - while also dropping litigation.
Yasir Al-Rumayyan, the governor of the Saudi Public Investment Fund (PIF), said on CNBC that he had reached out to Norman just before going on air.
'I made a call just before this and of course he is a partner with us, and all the stakeholders that we have with us they had the call right before this interview,' Al-Rumayyan said.
LIV Golf CEO Greg Norman wasn't told about the league's merger with the PGA Tour until today
PIF's Yasir Al-Rumayyan said he told Norman about the merger minutes before it was leaked
Norman's name wasn't in the announcement and he's reportedly not part of the merged league
