Adam Scott has opened up on his decision to snub LIV Golf, saying he’s not ready to give up on his dream of winning multiple majors.
The 42-year-old was a key target for Greg Norman and LIV Golf, but talks broke down earlier this year before the Saudi-backed tour focused its efforts on Cameron Smith.
Norman tells the Sydney Morning Herald last week that it is now “the turn” of Smith and Marc Leishman to convince the 2013 Masters champion to jump ship.

Asked at the Presidents Cup why he stuck with the PGA Tour, Scott suggested he could still be influenced in the future.
But Norman could still wait a while, with Scott still heavily focused on the majors, with the belief that he can win another one.
“I’ve been focused on the majors for 20 years and for me it wasn’t an overnight decision to say ‘well my mind is changing now after 20 years,'” he told the reporters at Quail Hollow.
“Even though I am older, I will still give myself time to let this landscape evolve and settle. We will find out where we are and what is going on.
“I’ve been trying, at least for the past two months, to take the emotion out of it and do what I can do, and that’s play golf.”

Scott has only become more entrenched on the PGA Tour in recent times, having been part of a 20-person select group led by Tiger Woods that discussed strategies to fight LIV Golf.
That said, the Aussie continues to leave the door open for change in the future but says he’s not ready to change his career goals just yet.
“Why I’m still with the PGA Tour is because it suits me best to still be on the PGA Tour,” he said. “It’s as simple as that, really.
“The one thing I haven’t figured out is giving up my whole professional life and trying to achieve these things here and leave them behind.
“I’m obviously not ready to do that.”
He added: “I may never be this good to be clear. I just think it’s an obstacle that – well, it wasn’t really presented to me, anyway.
This week Scott leads the Internationals to their 10th Presidents Cup.
He has yet to win the trophy.
