Lee Westwood: LIV has other tours running scared

Padraig Harrington makes huge Tiger Woods claim

Lee Westwood has backed LIV Golf to get “bigger and stronger”, insisting it can offer things the PGA Tour and DP World Tour can’t.

Westwood, 49, was one of the first players to commit to the Saudi-funded enterprise and played in all eight events of its ‘beta’ season in 2022.

Speaking in the latest edition of bunkered (issue 198, on-sale now), the Englishman explained why he believes its future is bright, despite the noise and controversy surrounding it.

I see the determination in everybody’s who’s involved and I think it’s going to go from strength to strength.”

He added: “People are getting so defensive because they’re worried, because they know it’s a good product, because they know LIV can guarantee sponsors these 48 players on these weeks of the year. Nobody else can do that. The PGA Tour and DP World Tour can’t.
