The rift between the PGA Tour and the Saudi-backed LIV Golf league has gotten nasty and quite heated at times over the past few months, even extending to a courtroom battle. But golf superstar Rory McIlroy has one big change that would help the two leagues make amends: LIV Golf commissioner Greg Norman’s resignation.

In an interview ahead of this weekend’s DP World Tour Championship in Dubai, Rory McIlroy said that the two golf leagues won’t be able to make any sort of compromise until Greg Norman either resigns or is fired.

“There’s a few things that I would like to see on the LIV side that needs to happen,” McIlroy said, according to ESPN. “I think Greg needs to go. I think he just needs to exit stage left. He’s made his mark, but I think now is the right time to sort of say, ‘Look, you’ve got this thing off the ground, but no one is going to talk unless there’s an adult in the room that can actually try to mend fences.'”

There were recent rumors that Norman could be replaced by Taco Bell CEO Mark King, but LIV has since come out and firmly denied any future changes to Norman’s title or role.
