Report: Jon Rahm Set to Join LIV Golf

  • Jon Rahm could be receiving the richest contract yet from LIV Golf.
  • An announcement of his move away from the PGA Tour could come this week.

Reigning Masters champions Jon Rahm, the No. 3-ranked golfer in the world, appears to have made up his mind about joining LIV Golf.

After weeks of rumors hinting at the Saudi Arabia-backed league offering up to $600 million to sign the Spaniard, the Wall Street Journal is now reporting that Rahm will indeed leave the PGA Tour to join LIV, with an announcement expected as soon as this week.

While a specific dollar amount is still unknown, the WSJ reports Rahm’s multi-year deal would be among the richest that LIV has offered to date. Phil Mickelson is believed to have received a deal worth somewhere around $200 million.

Rahm and his camp have been notably silent amid the rumors. The golfer didn’t compete in last week’s Hero World Challenge, the Tiger Woods-hosted event that brings together a selection of top players. Rahm also wasn’t among this week’s early commitments to The American Express, a PGA Tour event in January that Rahm won last year.
