Report: Saudi group preparing announcement of new golf series with Greg Norman as commissioner | Golf News and Tour Information

A Saudi-backed golf series is set to formally launch with World Golf Hall of Famer Greg Norman as its commissioner, according to a report from Golfweek. The report states that officials held a private meeting with “golf media members” on Wednesday in New York City to discuss details ahead of an official announcement; Golf Digest, which was not included in Wednesday’s meeting, is scheduled to meet with Norman on Monday.

Norman has long been linked to the new venture, which seeks to challenge the PGA Tour’s position as the pre-eminent golf tour by offering lucrative, guaranteed contracts to stars.
