Greg Norman Disinvited From British Open Over Saudi-Backed LIV Golf Series

Famed golfer Greg Norman, CEO and commissioner of the Saudi-backed LIV Golf Series that has poached players from the U.S. PGA Tour, has been uninvited to some top events at this week’s British Open.

The Royal & Ancient Golf Club at St. Andrew’s has asked Norman — who twice won the Open — not to attend the Celebration of Champions event on Monday or next week’s Champions’ Dinner at St. Andrews. As a part winner, Norman would also have been eligible to play in a four-hole exhibition before the tournament gets underway.
