If Greg Norman thought his week could possibly not get any worse with the refusal of player releases from the PGA Tour and DP World Tour, it most certainly has done following his comments regarding the brutal murder of journalist Jamal Khashoggi.
Norman, the CEO of LIV Golf Investments, was speaking to a group of journalists four weeks ahead of the inaugural Saudi-backed LIV Golf Invitational Series opener at Centurion Club in England.
LIV Golf is an organisation by the sovereign wealth fund of Saudi Arabia, and so Norman was quizzed by the media on Wednesday on a number of topics about the crimes alleged against the Saudi regime.
It is fair to say Norman's particular comments about the murder of Washington Post journalist Khashoggi have angered a lot of people.
"Everybody has owned up to it, right?" said Norman.
"It has been spoken about, from what I've read, going on what you guys reported.
"Take ownership, no matter what it is.
"Look, we've all made mistakes and you just want to learn from those mistakes and how you can correct them going forward."
When asked about the 81 executions Saudi Arabia carried out in a single day in March, Norman said: "Quite honestly I look forward, I don't look back. I don't look into the politics of things. I heard about it and just kept moving on."
Norman then added: "This whole thing about Saudi Arabia and Khashoggi and human rights, talk about it, but also talk about the good the country is doing to change its culture.
"There's not many countries that can stand up and be proud of that.
"They can't be proud of their past — there's a lot of countries in this world that have a cross to bear too — but they are looking after the younger generation."
Earlier in the week, Norman spoke to Sky Sports to confirm he does not answer to Mohammed bin Salman, the crown prince of Saudi Arabia, and he asserted that LIV Golf Investments are independent.
