Plenty of golfers have gone from the PGA Tour to the controversial LIV Golf this year, and John Daly seems to want to be the fugitive on the next Tour.
The Saudi-backed tournament was able to attract some of the Tour’s best players for huge sums of money.
During an appearance on “Piers Morgan Uncensored” in late July, Daly shared that he was interested in joining LIV to make more money than he currently has on the Champions Tour. But LIV CEO Greg Norman shut him down.
“I play 2-3 pro-ams a week on the Champions tour, and we don’t play for a lot of money on the Champions tour, so I almost feel like, ‘OK, I’m not getting that much. What are we doing? ‘” Daly said.
According to Daly, Norman told him the league didn’t want to add any more players.
Norman was able to attract many high-profile talent to LIV this year, including Dustin Johnson, Phil Mickelson, Brooks Koepka and two-time Masters champion.
Daly, 56, known for her unusual looks and colorful personality, has won five PGA Tour victories in her career. He won the 1991 PGA Championship and the 1995 Open Championship.
