Tiger Woods will reportedly go head-to-head with the PGA Tour's top stars in a bid to bolster opposition to the Saudi Arabia-backed LIV Golf Tour.

Despite his ongoing battle with injuries following his high-speed car crash last year, Woods, 46, remains one of the most marketable sports stars on the planet.

And he was seen as the golden ticket to Greg Norman's rebel streak, with the 15-time major champion offering a defection fee in the region of £600m.

However, the American icon declined the offer and publicly expressed her distaste for those who jumped ship.

He also targeted fellow countryman Phil Mickelson, who was one of Norman et al's first notable captives.

The likes of Dustin Johnson, Brooks Koepka, and Bryson DeChambeau followed suit, while Henrik Stenson was stripped of his European Ryder Cup captaincy for his move.

And golf's civil war is set to escalate further as Open champion Cameron Smith has all but admitted he is also targeting the LIV tour.

And now Woods is about to issue a protest call to those who remain on the PGA Tour, meeting with some of the top golfers in Wilmington, Delaware.
