"That's a lie" Davis Love III launches another attack on LIV's Greg Norman

Davis Love III has launched another attack on LIV Golf Tour chief executive Greg Norman, suggesting The Great White Shark continues to lie. 

Appearing on Golf's Subpar podcast, the United States Presidents Cup captain said that Norman, 67, has and continues to make claims that are untrue.  

Love touched on The Great White Shark's previous comments about the LIV Golf Invitational Series currently being a closed shop. That is because all the spots in the 48-man field for next season are reportedly now full. 

Cameron Smith, Cameron Tringale, Anirban Lahiri, Harold Varner III, Marc Leishman and Joaquin Niemann are the latest LIV recruits. 

Niemann reportedly was in attendance at the famous "meeting" where all PGA Tour pros were "unanimous" in their agreement to support the PGA Tour. 

"I get calls from players every day saying they want in," Norman previously said on LIV Golf's apparent popularity.

"He says things that are so untrue," Love told Colt Knost and Drew Stoltz. "He gets up there and says, 'We're a closed shop' a few weeks ago.' 

"No, I know three guys and what you're offering them and they're begging him to come. It's not a closed shop. And then he tells — I could see — you've seen it in the text messages that are released with Sergio [Garcia]. But he tells players they can't suspend you for one day, much less a year. That's a lie." 

Love was referring to the text message exchange that was revealed in court documents that were filed in LIV Golf's antitrust lawsuit against the PGA Tour.

As you know by now, all PGA Tour members who have teed it up in LIV Golf events have been suspended pending the outcome of the lawsuit. 

Love, who has previously been outspoken about LIV Golf on more than one occasion in recent weeks and months, also touched on the idea that the DP World Tour has now become "a feeder tour" for the established American circuit. 

The 58-year-old sees the strengthened "strategic alliance" between the European circuit and the PGA as a positive. As part of the new changes, the top-10 players on the DP World Tour now earn PGA Tour cards. 

One Tour pro doesn't like this idea, and completely ripped Tiger Woods and Rory McIlroy over the changes that they have spearheaded in professional golf. 

Love said: "We've made it easier for European players to play our Tour, not harder, right? We've made it easier for international players to get on our Tour.

"So we've been agreeable and accessible on everything except people that come into the United States and want to play against our weeks on Tour."
