“LIV Golf is truly a global league dedicated to expanding the sport throughout the world, and these destinations for the league’s 2023 launch showcase our commitment to tournament play at the highest level,” LIV Golf CEO and Commissioner Greg Norman said Wednesday in a press release. 

“These venues have played host to signature moments in golf, and we’re excited to build new traditions for the sport while delivering a first-class fan experience at some of the world’s best courses.”

Norman has been a controversial figure in the world of golf as multiple players have called for the two-time major winner to step down as CEO of LIV Golf. 

Ahead of November’s DP World Tour Championship in Dubai, Rory McIlroy said Norman “needs to go,” with Tiger Woods sharing his friends’ sentiment on Tuesday when asked how the PGA Tour and LIV Golf can have an amicable relationship.

“I think Greg has to go, first of all,” Woods said Tuesday. “And 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.”
