Amazon.com Inc. isn’t interested in streaming LIV Golf, according to a person familiar with the matter, leaving the Saudi-backed league with fewer options as it searches for a media partner.

LIV Golf held its first tournaments this year and has quickly established itself as a threat to the PGA Tour. It has poached some of the sport’s biggest names, including Dustin Johnson, Phil Mickelson and Cameron Smith, luring them away with massive sums of money.
