Greg Norman has revealed plans for all LIV Golf teams to have their own home course owned by the league, following an interview with Bloomberg.

Norman, 69, is eager for the Saudi-bankrolled circuit to follow in the footsteps of the Premier League, the Indian Premier League and the NFL in teams all having their own venues.


Norman told Bloomberg:

"Man United owns their stadium. Indian Premier League, they own their stadiums. NFL, they own their stadiums. 

"Think about LIV owning all their own golf courses, each team having a home venue and they host, and now you can build out around that. It's not just a golf course.

"You bring in education, you bring in hospitality, you bring in real estate, you bring in merchandise, you bring in management, you bring in all these other different opportunities that the game of golf has to deliver to a community, to a region. We are gonna be doing that."

Norman's latest comments came on the same day that five-time major champion Brooks Koepka became the first player to win four times on the LIV Golf League.

Smash GC captain Koepka saw out a two-shot victory over Ripper GC duo Cameron Smith and Marc Leishman. 

Koepka admits the game has become 'easy' for him again just two weeks before he bids to defend the US PGA title at Valhalla.
