Majed Al Sorour has left his role as LIV Golf managing director, it has been confirmed by Sports Illustrated, on the same day the Saudi-bankrolled circuit officially confirmed its new 14-tournament schedule for 2023.
According to the SI report, Greg Norman's role as CEO will now be "strengthened" because the managing director vacancy is not going to be filled.
"He needs to go," said McIlroy when GolfMagic spoke to the World No.1 at the DP World Tour Championship in November.
Al Sorour is set to remain as one of seven members on the LIV Golf board of directors.
He is a club director at Newcastle United, as well as the CEO of the Saudi Golf Federation.
Some of you may recall Al Sorour was the man who last year who was apparently 'misrepresented' over these comments.
