Greg Norman Visits Capitol Hill Hoping to Enhance LIV Golf’s Image

Greg Norman is headed to Washington, DC, this week to meet with members of Congress in an attempt to push back on PGA Tour lobbying events while also hoping to enhance the LIV Golf League’s image due to considerable backlash over its funding from Saudi Arabia.

Norman, the Hall of Fame golfer who won two major championships, was announced late last year as LIV Golf’s CEO and commissioner of the league. He won 20 times on the PGA Tour.

“LIV Golf is coming to the Hill this week to meet with lawmakers from both parties,” said Jonathan Grella, LIV Golf’s chief communications officer, in a statement to Sports Illustrated. “Given the PGA Tour’s attempts to stifle our progress in reimagining the game, we think it’s imperative to educate members on LIV’s business model and counter the Tour’s anti-competitive efforts.”
