Tiger Woods has made it clear where he stands on LIV Golf, as the longtime PGA Tour star has spoken out on his opposition to the Saudi-backed tour. 

Not everyone in LIV Golf is happy with Woods for his comments.

While most golfers adore Tiger Woods, one veteran golfer, Pat Perez, appears to be furious with his comments on LIV Golf.

“That’s the stupidest s—t I have ever heard of in my life,” Perez said of Woods' comments. “That’s one of the stupidest things I think he has said. The incentive is the fact that last place is 120,000, first place is four million. You cannot win four million on the PGA Tour. Now, next year you might; they finally got the perks. But last time I checked, he signed a $40 million deal right out of college, was flying on the Nike jet. He found incentive. He could have shut it down right then.” 

Woods had spoken out against LIV Golf.

“But what these players are doing for guaranteed money, what is the incentive to practice?” Woods said. “What is the incentive to go out there and earn it in the dirt? You’re just getting paid a lot of money up front and playing a few events and playing 54 holes. They’re playing blaring music and have all these atmospheres that are different.”

Who do you side with?
