Tiger Woods is looking for a record-breaking 83rd PGA Tour victory this week

Former number 1 in the world Tiger Woods has been approached by the organizers of the Premier Golf League – a proposed competition to match the PGA Tour.

The Grand Prix-like world tour with 18 events would have 48 top players and a total prize pool of $ 240 million (£ 183 million).

"My team is aware of this and has studied the details," said the 15-time winner.

"There is a lot of information that we are still looking at and whether it is a reality or not."

PGA Tour Commissioner Jay Monahan told players they should choose between the new series or the PGA Tour, while Keith Pelley, Chief Executive of the European Tour, also gave a warning to that on that tour.

"Like all events you're trying to get top players to play more collectively," added Woods, who was speaking at a press conference before the start of the Genes Invitational, which he hosts.

"It is one of the reasons why we have established the World Golf Championships because we only met about five times a year – the four majors and the Players [Championship] – and we wanted the top players to be more than only show those occasions.

"This is a natural evolution, or things like this are going to happen … but ideas like this are going to happen in the future, whether it is now or at another time in the future . "

The British World Golf Group unveiled plans for the Premier Golf League last month, which it hopes to launch in 2022
