Legendary golfer Jack Nicklaus says LIV Golf are "trying to buy respectability" as he revealed Tiger Woods will be playing PGA Tour Champions in three years' time and is likely to use a golf cart.
Nicklaus, now 83 years old, joined Sir Nick Faldo's new podcast Round Table Chats to discuss a number of topics.
Chief of which was the career of Woods and of course the breakaway tour spearheaded Faldo's old on-course foe Greg Norman.
Nicklaus made it clear that he had absolutely no issue with players joining LIV.
He told the podcast:
Nicklaus previously revealed he turned down in excess of $100m to occupy the same role Norman has with LIV.
The Golden Bear revealed he did met with LIV chiefs "out of courtesy" because of his golf course design work with Saudi Arabia.
But insisted that he had to remain loyal to the PGA Tour. Nicklaus refused to elaborate on the topic at last year's Memorial.
Norman later described Nicklaus as a 'hypocrite' for these comments.
The Australian claimed Nicklaus offered different thoughts in private about LIV, saying: "If it's good for the game of golf it's good by me".
Nicklaus continued to Faldo:
"When I get to the senior tour I will"
Nicklaus also revealed Tiger Woods has plans to play PGA Tour Champions and is likely to use a golf cart.
Woods returned to action for the first time since the 2022 Open at the Genesis Invitational.
The 47-year-old finished T-45 at Riviera Country Club after sparking controversy with his tampon prank on Justin Thomas.
The comments from Nicklaus will be warmly received by Woods fans. He has previously stated he has no plans to be a ceremonial golfer.
But it looks like he will want to be competitive beyond his 50th birthday.
