Tiger Woods said on Tuesday that he was against the Saudi-backed LIV Golf Tournament moving in on the PGA's territory.

"I disagree with it," Woods said of players participating in the LIV Tournament. "I think that what they've done is they've turned their back on what has allowed them to get to this position."

Among those who were lured by LIV: Former major champions Bryson DeChambeau, Dustin Johnson and Brooks Koepka.  They each received guaranteed deals worth more than $100 million.

"Who knows what's going to happen in the near future with world-ranking points, the criteria for entering major championships," Woods said. "The governing body is going to have to figure that out.

"Some of these players may not ever get a chance to play in major championships. That is a possibility. We don't know that for sure yet. It's up to all the major championship bodies to make that determination. But that is a possibility, that some players will never, ever get a chance to play in a major championship, never get a chance to experience this right here, walk down the fairways at Augusta National. That, to me, I just don't understand it."
