Tiger Woods throws shade at LIV Golf

Tiger Woods made his position clear

Tiger Woods is currently in Scotland where he is making his final preparations before playing in the 150th Open Championship at St. Andrews golf course.

But when the Open Championship begins, there will be quite a few familiar faces missing in action as they have elected to leave the PGA Tour and head to LIV Golf.

Woods is clearly not a big fan of LIV Golf and on Tuesday, he made his feeling extremely clear not only about LIV Golf but about the players who have left for guaranteed money.

Tiger Woods throws shade at LIV Golf

During Tuesday’s presser at St. Andrews, Tiger Woods gave an expansive answer about LIV Golf and about the players leaving the PGA Tour saying those players have “turned their back on what has allowed them to get to this position.”

From The Athletic:

“What these players are doing for guaranteed money, what is the incentive to practice?” Woods said during his pre-Open Championship news conference at St. Andrews. “What is the incentive to go out there and earn it in the dirt? You’re just getting paid a lot of money up front and playing a few events and playing 54 holes. They’re playing blaring music and have all these atmospheres that are different.”

Woods, who is very calculated with what he says during a press conference, warned the players who have left or are considering leaving for LIV Golf.

“Some of these players may not ever get a chance to play in major championships,” he said. “That is a possibility. We don’t know that for sure yet. It’s up to all the major championship bodies to make that determination. But that is a possibility, that some players will never, ever get a chance to play in a major championship, never get a chance to experience this right here, walk down the fairways at Augusta National.”

Nation, if you were a professional golfer, would you follow the guaranteed money and head to LIV Golf?
