LIV Golf general manager Greg Norman has accused the PGA Tour rival of “trying to destroy” its streak.
Norman said his Saudi-backed series was designed to live alongside existing golf tours, and he made several attempts to negotiate with the PGA.
However, the 67-year-old Australian said all his approaches had been rebuffed.
He told the Australian newspaper: “This idea that we are trying to destroy the circuits is not true. The PGA Tour is trying to destroy us, it is as simple as that.”
Norman added: “The PGA Tour has not sat down and had a conversation with myself or any of my investors.
“We tried very hard, I know I have personally over the last year. When we knew we were never going to hear from them, we just decided to go.
“We have no interest in sitting down with them, to be honest with you, because our product works.”
The lucrative series offers $25m (£21.7m) purses for 54-hole tournaments and has attracted several big-name names including Open champion and world number two Cameron Smith Dustin Johnson , Phil Mickelson, Brooks Koepka and Bryson DeChambeau.
They have all been suspended by the PGA Tour for participating in the rebel series. The Europe-based DP World Tour is engaged in a legal battle to see if it can also suspend its members who have switched to the LIV series.
DP World Tour boss Keith Pelley last week criticized LIV and defended his own tour, which works closely with the PGA Tour to see the “existential threat” posed by LIV for the sport.
“The Saudis remain committed to building a new series outside of the current ecosystem. This decision created the conflict we see today and we have chosen to partner with the game’s leading tour,” Pelley explained earlier this month.
Norman, however, said LIV Golf was not an “escape” series, insisting that it “has always been built around inclusion”.
LIV has also been accused of being a vehicle for “sportswashing” Saudi Arabia’s human rights record.
Protesters gathered at his most recent event in Boston, but when asked about their presence – and the criticism – Norman said: “I don’t even pay attention to that, to be honest with you.
“All I can tell you is that I’m here for the golf. I’m focused on building the best league possible.”
