Saudi Golf League In Talks Over Controversial TV Deal

The looming LIV Golf Invitational Series has caused plenty of controversies, including whether players who sign up for it will be banned from their current tours, the clash of its events with the PGA Tour and the fallout from Phil Mickelson’s controversial comments related to it. Now, another issue is threatening more disruption.

According to a report in Sports Business Journal, TV production company NEP Group is on the verge of striking a deal with the Greg Norman-fronted series. While that may not seem problematic at first glance, if it happens, it will present a conflict as NEP Group is already heavily involved with the PGA Tour. The potential for the clash began last month when NEP Group bid for the rights to handle the series along with rival companies, including Game Creek Video and Gravity Media. LIV Golf chose NEP as its preferred bid.
