Tiger Woods reportedly turned down a "mind-blowingly enormous" deal to join the Saudi-backed breakaway series which threatens to completely change professional golf.

Woods, 46, was obviously one of the targets for the Saudi-backed LIV Golf Invitational Series. They have now signed up Phil Mickelson and Dustin Johnson.
But it is a sign of the big cat's loyalty or perhaps his vast wealth that he turned down the "gargantuan" offer.
The news that Woods was offered this money was confirmed by Greg Norman in an interview with the Washington Post.
In that same interview, he claimed that Jack Nicklaus was "a hypocrite" because the Golden Bear was allegedly in favour of the breakaway circuit.
Norman, 72, also said that Rory McIlroy - an outspoken critic of the rival league - was "brainwashed".
"We're talking about high nine digits," Norman said of the offer touted to the 15-time major champion. Woods was not present at the meeting, he said, but the offer was put to his reps.
The inaugral event of the LIV Golf Invitational Series begins this week.
Johnson has joined Kevin Na, Sergio Garcia and Charl Scwartzel in resigning his PGA Tour membership.
Mickelson has not resigned from the PGA Tour. He says he intends to play the majors, starting next week at The Country Club at Brookline for the U.S. Open.
