Reports say Tiger Woods to meet with PGA Tour players at BMW Championship in effort to fend off LIV Golf

Tiger Woods travels to the BMW Championship this week, but not to play golf. Instead, he will meet with a group of PGA Tour players to discuss further engagement in the LIV Golf Invitational Series.
According to reports from the Fire Pit Collective and ESPN's Mark Schlabach, Woods will be at the Wilmington Country Club on Tuesday to meet with a large number of the top 20 players in the world two days before the first round of the second FedEx Cup playoffs tournament.

One invited player told ESPN the meeting will "include influential PGA Tour members who have not defected to LIV Golf."
There will also be a PGA Tour Players Advisory Committee meeting on Tuesday. Woods' meeting is scheduled to take place afterwards, according to ESPN. PGA Tour Jay Monahan has a meeting with Tour players on Wednesday.
Woods was last seen missing the cut at the 150th Open Championship in July. He has spoken out against LIV on a number of occasions, including in St Andrews.
"Greg [Norman] has done some things that I don't think are in the best interests of our game and we're returning to what is probably the most historic and traditional place in our sport," Woods said after his Tuesday practice round at the Old Course. "I think it's the right thing.
"I know what the PGA Tour stands for and what we've done and what the Tour has given us, the ability to pursue our career and deserve what we get and the trophies to play for and the history, which it has was part of this game. I know Greg tried that in the early 90's. It didn't work then, and he's trying to make it work now.
"I still don't see how that's in the best interest of the game."
Norman, the CEO and public face of Saudi Arabia-backed LIV Golf, told Fox News he offered Woods something between $700 million and $800 million to join. Wald refused.
