Tiger joins PGA expanded board


FLORIDA (AFP) — Tiger Woods is joining the PGA Tour’s newly expanded policy board, the tour announced Tuesday, in a move aimed at cooling player tensions over secrecy surrounding merger talks with the Saudi backers of LIV Golf.

The 15-time major champion, a long-time supporter of the PGA Tour in its fight with upstart LIV, will have a direct say in approving any eventual deal with the Saudi Public Investment Fund, the framework of which was unveiled in June to the shock of tour players.

“I’m honored to represent the players of the PGA Tour,” Woods said in a statement from the tour.

“This is a critical point for the tour, and the players will do their best to make certain that any changes that are made in tour operations are in the best interest of all tour stakeholders, including fans, sponsors and players.”

PGA commissioner Jay Monahan, under fire from many players over handling of the IV talks since he made the announcement, said future rule changes will require the involvement and approval of the six player directors from the board, including Woods and Rory McIlroy.

That gives player representatives an upper hand on the 11-member board and the power in all decisions regarding any final agreement with the Saudis.
