Tiger Woods has been a pillar of professional golf for over two decades. The 15-time Major champion and 82-time PGA Tour winner has helped move the needle in professional golf throughout his career. Naturally, Woods would be seen as a potential target for any start-up corporation.

In an exclusive interview with the Washington Post, two-time Major winner and LIV Golf CEO, Greg Norman, said they're targeting Tiger Woods, approaching him to join LIV Golf.

Washington Post reporter, Kent Baab, said that according to Norman, the offer to Woods was mind-blowingly enormous.

"We're talking about high nine digits."

This news comes after multiple reports of LIV Golf and Saudi Arabia attempting to lure high-value golfers into the LIV fold. For example, they offered a $100 million deal to 18-time Major champion, Jack Nicklaus, to be an associate of LIV. They also offered Dustin Johnson a $125 million deal to play the series.

Tiger Woods confirmed that he's been approached by LIV Golf, but has always thrown his support behind the PGA Tour. Woods's most recent comments came in May at Southern Hills during the PGA Championship.

"I've supported the Tour and my foundation has run events on the Tour for a number of years," Woods said during a PGA Championship press conference. "I just think that what Jack (Nicklaus) and Arnold (Palmer) have done in starting the Tour and breaking away from the PGA of America... I just think there's a legacy to that."

What's On Tap Next?

This news comes at the start of the first LIV Golf series event at Centurion Club outside London, where Dustin Johnson, Lee Westwood, Ian Polter, and others headline the 48-man field event.

Currently, 47 of the 48 spots are filled, but it's rumored that six-time Major champion, Phil Mickelson, will be heading to compete in the field, according to Golf Channel's Rich Lerner.

Meanwhile, the PGA Tour travels up north for the RBC Canadian Open hosted at St. George's Golf Course in Toronto. Notables in the field include Scottie Scheffler, Justin Thomas, Rory McIlroy, and Cameron Smith.

Following the Tours' stop in Canada and LIV's opening in London, players will then travel to Boston for the U.S. Open Championship hosted at the Country Club on June 16-19. There has been no word yet on if those playing in London will be removed from the U.S. Open field.
