Greg Norman seems to enjoy playing the villain.

The two-time major champion has been the face of the Saudi-backed LIV Golf league since its inception a year ago and he doesn’t back down from a fight.

Norman took the PGA Tour and commissioner Jay Monahan head on when LIV began and penned a scathing letter addressing both.

“But when you try to bluff and intimidate players by bullying and threatening them, you are guilty of going too far, being unfair, and you likely are in violation of the law. Simply put, you can’t ban players from playing golf.  Players have the right and the freedom to play where we like. I know for a fact that many PGA players were and still are interested in playing for a new league, in addition to playing for the Tour,” Norman said in part.

Greg Norman Expects Massive On-Course Celebration If LIV Golfer Wins The Masters

Fast forward a year and Norman hasn’t backtracked. In fact, he may have become even more abrasive. Prior to The Masters, in which 18 LIV golfers will compete, Norman spoke with James Corrigan of The Telegraph to discuss how he’ll handle to the week.

Among those plans includes a bold idea for how he and the LIV golfers will celebrate should one of them win.

“They’ve said that if one of them wins then the other 17 will hang around and be there to congratulate him around the 18th green,” Norman told Corrigan said. “Could you imagine what a scene that would be, all these players hugging the winner. You only see things like that in the Ryder Cup, although it’s happening in our events more and more”

While the golfers may celebrate collectively, Norman won’t be a part of it. That’s because the controversial Aussie was not invited to this year’s tournament.

“Funnily enough, I haven’t been invited,” he said. “As a major winner I always was before, but they only sent me a grounds pass last year and nothing, zilch, this time around. I’m disappointed because it’s so petty but of course I’ll still be watching.”
