Tommy Fleetwood: Major reason I turned down an offer to join LIV Golf
Fleetwood sponsored by Saudi Arabia.
I’m always going to do what I love about my golf game, and that’s what I’m doing right now. I still don’t think they can reach the people of LIV and Flash News because they have been reaching people for so long. Some will go and some will win

Tommy Fleetwood has confirmed he has withdrawn his offer to join LIV Golf.

   Tommy Fleetwood has confirmed he has turned down an offer to join Saudi-backed LIV Golf. The 33-year-old Briton, a member of Europe’s 2023 Ryder Cup team, has rejected offers from the Saudi-backed luxury tour and is talking about a partnership with the PGA Tour to reach a deal.
Fleetwood, who saw his Ryder Cup team-mate Jon Rahm go down at the LIV last month, told BBC Sport: “I always do what I love about my golf game and now it’s me.

“I don’t think it’s been a long time since people have approached me. News flash people are still getting into LIV.
And some go and others win, no.
At some point, we all have to play together or we don’t want to win. Like everyone else, I’ll wait to find out.

  Last week, Fleetwood narrowly beat Rory McIlroy by one stroke after the final hole at the Dubai Invitational.
Currently on the DP World Tour and Hero Dubai Desert Classic, Fleetwood is tied for fifth place, seven strokes behind leader Cameron Young.

PGA Tour news continues to be helpful. Negotiations between DP World Tour and Saudi Arabia’s Public Investment Fund have extended beyond the December 31 deadline.
A basic agreement between the two organizations was announced on June 6 that stunned the world of men’s professional golf and was originally expected to be signed before the end of 2023.
The PGA Tour announced on December 10 that it is in discussions with Strategic Sports Group . (SSG), an investment group led by Liverpool owner Fenway Sports Group.

PGA Tour Commissioner Jay Monahan said “significant progress” had been made in a Dec. 31 memo to players. I had a “productive conversation” with SSG. PIF continued to fund the DP World Tour and the new LIV golf course.
