Speaking before the Hero World Challenge in Albany, Bahamas - which he has withdrawn from through injury - Woods said there was an opportunity for the PGA Tour and the Saudi-financed league to move forward if there is "a stay" in litigation.
As many as 11 players filed an antitrust lawsuit in August before the PGA Tour's FedEx Cup playoffs. Eight players have dropped out, although LIV Golf have added themselves as a plaintiff. The PGA Tour have countersued.
Woods also tore into the leadership of LIV Golf on Wednesday, accusing them of at times behaving "tastelessly". He also explained why he believes the Official World Golf Ranking system is "flawed".
He admitted that "nobody expected" the golf world to be this complicated 12 months ago. The 15-time major champion also expressed surprise at the animosity from both sides.
Woods said of the current situation regarding the PGA Tour and LIV:

The aforementioned McIlroy previously called on the two-time Open champion Norman to step down, suggesting he should "exit stage left".
There have been rumblings LIV Golf bosses were thinking moving Norman upstairs to be replaced with a less divisive figure to help increase their legitimacy. This has been denied by LIV.
Woods also confirmed that he never tested positive for COVID-19 despite McIlroy previously expressing alarm he thought he gave the 82-time PGA Tour winner the disease before the landmark major.
When asked about the OWGR, Woods said:

The big cat confirmed that going into 2023 his goal will be to play golf's four major championships and one or two more.
"That's all I can do, I don't know how much I have left in this leg," he said.
Woods said he doesn't know what the "end game" will be regarding LIV Golf. He said nothing could happen while there is ongoing litigation.
He confirmed since playing in the 150th Open Championship he has undergone more procedures, but refused to elaborate what surgeries he had.
Woods said he's not sure if he will able to make it back to St. Andrews in eight years' time. He said he wouldn't want to return to just say farewell. "I want to win the damn thing," he said. "Hopefully this leg is still attached."
Woods also confirmed he would never use a golf cart in a PGA Tour event, only using transportation in tournaments where it is permitted.
