Greg Norman has labelled Tiger Woods a ‘mouthpiece’ for the PGA Tour after the American once again voiced his criticisms of LIV Golf.

Norman has been regularly embroiled in a war of words with the fifteen-time major champion and was again in a bullish mood when responding to comments Woods made at the Hero World Challenge last month.

Woods demanded that Norman resign from his role of LIV Golf CEO in order to accelerate a drive towards an amicable relationship between the Saudi backed organisation and the PGA Tour.

“I think Greg (Norman) has to go, first of all,” Woods said.

“Then obviously the litigation against us and then our countersuit against them. Those would then have to be at a stay as well, then we can talk, we can all talk freely.

“Right now as it is, not right now, not with their leadership, not with Greg there and his animosity towards the tour itself. I don’t see that happening.”

Rumours have been constantly circling over the future of Norman as the head man at LIV Golf but the Aussie was defiant in his stance while taking a jibe at Woods in the process.

“He [Woods] doesn’t know the facts because, obviously, I’m still here… Just making those comments, I think, is an indication that he might be a bit of a mouthpiece for the PGA Tour to try and do – to get us to create – or get turmoil, create it internally within LIV,” Norman told Fox News.

“But it’s not happening. We are fully entrenched. We know where we’re going. We know what we’re doing.”
