Jon Rahm to LIV Golf: Spaniard confirms he is leaving PGA Tour to join Saudi-backed series.8th December 2023

Masters champion Jon Rahm has become arguably LIV Golf’s most significant signing in its short history.

The world number three’s decision to leave the PGA Tour for the Saudi-funded circuit represents a huge U-turn.

Rahm had previously ruled out joining LIV since its inaugural season in 2022.

“As you can see now it’s official. This is me finally saying after all the rumours, some of them were true, and I am officially joining LIV Golf,” the Spaniard, 29, told Fox News.

“It’s not an easy decision. I’ve had a very successful career and I’m happy.

“There are a lot of things that LIV Golf have to offer which were very enticing, starting with team golf.”
