Greg Norman criticised Rory McIlroy after the Northern Irishman surpassed his PGA Tour win total by winning the RBC Canadian Open earlier this year.
Immediately after dropping his heel, the 33-year-old began his celebrations on the course by mocking the CEO of LIV Golf: "This is a day I'll remember for a long, long time.
21st win on the PGA Tour - one more than anyone else. That's what motivated me a little bit today and I'm glad I have it.'
Norman amassed 20 PGA Tour victories during his decorated career, with the last coming in 1997 at the NEC World Series Of Golf
a four-shot victory over LIV Golf counterpart Phil Mickelson.
Although McIlroy's comments were made back in June,
they remained on Norman's mind in a recent interview with Australian Golf Digest, where the 67-year-old took aim at one of his rival circuit's biggest critics.
"I respect Rory but I'm a bit confused by his approach," he said. "But then he's paid to sit on the PGA Tour's player advisory board, so he's obviously going to support the Tour."
I know he demanded a hefty fee to play in Saudi Arabia.
I take it as a compliment that he wanted to beat my 20 wins on the PGA Tour.
