Tiger Woods throws PGA Tour under the bus with first words on LIV Golf merger

Tiger Woods, who had remained quiet regarding the PGA Tour-LIV Golf merger, took to Twitter on Sunday to deny ever seeing the controversial document placing him at a players meeting during the 2022 Travelers Championship.

The document is a transcript of a speech Woods supposedly gave at the players meeting in question, which is full of anti-LIV Golf rhetoric.

“In response to the talking points memo released this weekend, I have never seen this document until today, and I did not attend the players meeting for which it was prepared at the 2022 Travelers,” Woods tweeted.

Woods, 47, turned down a massive contract to join LIV Golf last year. The deal would have substantially bumped his net worth and he’d now be a billionaire.

Now that he’s set to receive some shares of the new organization, Woods will still become even wealthier, but his comments throw PGA Tour commissioner Jay Monahan under the bus.

The document, released by Twitter user @desertdufferLLG, is dated June 21, 2022 and is clearly something Monahan’s team wrote hoping Woods would be on board.

It starts with Monahan addressing the golfers before saying Woods wanted to talk. Tiger would then ask the commissioner and his team to leave so he could talk to the players alone.

The document then has Woods praising Monahan and telling players to reject the Saudi money. He even brings up his son Charlie to make a point that the PGA Tour must continue making history.

Now that the tours are merging, Monahan has acknowledged he was being hypocritical, especially when he mentioned the Twin Towes in an attempt to bash LIV Golf.
