Tiger Woods has joined the cacophony of voices in the PGA Tour protesting their impending partnership with Saudi-backed LIV Golf. Woods has agreed to become the sixth player director on the Tour policy board and will work with other members to ensure the PGA honors its mission to be “for the players, by the players.”

For 47-year-old Woods, it is all about standing up for his fellow PGA loyalists. “I am honored to represent the players of the PGA Tour,” he said. “This is a critical point for the Tour, and the players will do their best to make certain that any changes that are made in Tour operations are in the best interest of all Tour stakeholders, including fans, sponsors, and players.”

PGA Tour Commissioner Jay Monahan, who came under fire for helping to facilitate and approve the deal between LIV Golf and the Tour, hopes to prove he only has the best interest of the players in mind. “I am committed to taking the necessary steps to restore any lost trust or confidence that occurred as a result of the surprise announcement of our Framework Agreement,” Monahan said. “Any agreement we reach must be shaped by our members’ input and approval earned through our Player Directors.”
