Tiger Woods has confirmed he had 'never seen' the controversial leaked PGA Tour document that was posted on social media over the weekend.
Woods, 47, also admits he 'did not attend the players meeting for which the document was prepared at the 2022 Travelers'.
According to a leaked document that was tweeted out by @desertdufferLLG over the weekend, PGA Tour bosses had planned for Woods to give a rousing speech to the membership before the 2022 Travelers Championship, urging them to 'tell the Saudis to go F themselves and mean it'.
But Woods took to Twitter late Sunday night to explain this was the first time he had ever seen such a document with plans laid out for him to follow a scripted speech to the rest of his peers on the PGA Tour.
In response to the talking points memo released this weekend, I have never seen this document until today, and I did not attend the players meeting for which it was prepared at the 2022 Travelers.— Tiger Woods (@TigerWoods) July 2, 2023
Woods, who is currently sidelined from PGA Tour action as he recovers from ankle surgery, tweeted:

Probably the best line came in the form of Woods telling the Tour membership what they can do to fend off LIV Golf.
Woods was planned to say:
There are other little nuggets in there that are equally amusing.
The 15-time major champion was even told to bring up his son Charlie Woods.

It remains to be seen what else comes from this leaked document.
We're fairly certain Woods' tweet won't be the last on the subject.

Guessing the story may be about to break wide open and he’s getting in front of it. He…— TWLEGION (@TWlegion) July 3, 2023
They are - they’re filed on the docket - I just looked at them— TWLEGION (@TWlegion) July 3, 2023
Monahan has currently stepped away from his duties as PGA Tour commissioner due to an unspecified health issue.
One PGA Tour pro has urged the under-fire boss to let the membership know if he can return to work soon amid the PGA Tour's deal with LIV Golf.
