Plenty of golfers have gone from the PGA Tour to the controversial LIV Golf league this year, and John Daly apparently wanted to be the next Tour defector.

The Saudi-backed league has been able to lure away some of the best players on the Tour with massive amounts of money.

During an appearance on “Piers Morgan Uncensored” in late July, Daly shared that he had interest in joining LIV to make more money than he currently does on the Champions Tour. But LIV CEO Greg Norman shut him down.

“I begged Greg Norman to let me be on the LIV tour,” Daly said, via Todd Kelly of GolfWeek.

“I play two to three pro-ams every week on the Champions tour and we don’t play for a lot of money on the Champions tour so I almost feel like, ‘OK, I’m not getting a lot out of this. What are we doing?’” Daly said.

According to Daly, Norman told him that the league was not looking to add any more players.

Norman was able to attract plenty of high-end talent to LIV this year, including Dustin Johnson, Phil Mickelson, Brooks Koepka and a two-time Masters champion.

The 56-year-old Daly, known for his unconventional appearance and colorful personality, has five career PGA Tour wins. He won the PGA Championship in 1991 and the Open Championship in 1995.
