Greg Norman on his 'negotiating tactics' to lure Cameron Smith

Greg Norman, the CEO of LIV Golf, lured a large number of golfers to join LIV Golf as a result of his strategies. This tour has attracted a large number of stars, including Cameron Smith, who is considered one of the most interesting players on the tour.

Greg Norman expressed his delight at the fact that Smith has joined LIV Golf during one of the interviews, and he revealed how he negotiated with Smith with the aim of bringing him on board. "I have a lot of respect for all these guys making the decision they made.

They made the decision on the presentation that we gave them, the offer we gave them, you respect them for doing that. I respect anybody for making the decision when they know the facts. When I started talking to Cam, I didn’t want to push it.

These guys have got to find their own way, knowing what is out there. To get from the offer, to signing it, to get to that point, you’ve got to go through a lot. It’s no different to when I signed on as CEO. "- Norman said, as quoted by

We had a couple of conversations. And then when the time came, he was ready. He found the way he found the way down that path of the journey he wanted to do. When he came on board. It was like 'oh my gosh', the best thing that happened to us to be honest with you”.
