Piers Morgan ‘Uncensored’ guest John Daly revealed he really wanted to be part of the LIV Golf Invitational Series, With his usual outspokenness the American indicated he was presenting that he had a place on exposure the circuit.
“I provided Greg Norman to let me participate in the LIV tour” he declared in the emission available on Internet.
He went on to explain how he thinks the LIV Tour is the best relative to the PGA Tour or even the PGA Tour Champions. Circuits that John Daly frequents.
At The Open, which he played as a former winner, Daly says he played extensive practice games and could see himself doing it for more money.
“I play two to three pro-ams every week on the champions tour and we don’t play for a lot of money on those tours, so I figure I don’t get much out of it. Whereas ?”
“Listen, sometimes I prefer to play with amateurs rather than pros, but we can be compensated for that. On the LIV we pay the players. They’re playing pro-ams, it’s a big party, they’re playing for a lot of money, and these guys that are on this circuit, are working that money. I think there are a lot of other guys making that money. Especially this old man. Daly said, pointing to himself.
Daly denounces hypocrisy
Asked by journalist-host Piers Morgan about the controversy surrounding the involvement of Saudi Arabia, the double major winner was less talkative.
“ Piers, let’s not talk about that. They don’t want to be mentioned because of, you know, all the labor laws and stuff. It’s incredible. Politics is so stupid. We could talk about Nike, I could talk about other companies. Eight-year-olds make shoes for Nike.”
Daly then admitted that he was too old but above all he came up against the fact that Greg Norman no longer invited other players to the LIV where places are limited. Also not sure that seeing Big John was playing in a cart (as is increasingly the case) and smoking on the course does not dent a little more the LIV Golf which tries to be eligible for the allocation of world points .
