There is a possibility that Jon Rahm, the Masters champion, may depart from the PGA Tour and join LIV Golf.
Rumors have been circulating regarding the potential move of the prestigious golfer to the league backed by Saudi Arabia, with reports indicating an extraordinary signing bonus valued at $600 million.
The rumored signing bonus is elaborated in a social media post located here.
Rahm has expressed favorable views about LIV Golf in the past, further fueling speculations about his future in the realm of golf.
Recently, golf journalist Alan Shipnuck alleged on social media that Phil Mickelson had been affirming Rahm’s intention to join the rebel league. However, Mickelson promptly denied the allegations, affirming, “This isn’t accurate, and I’m not aware of anything. I don’t want to know anything, and I have not spoken about this. Alan is the most dishonest and a pitiful individual.”
As long as Rahm does not address the rumors himself, there will likely be continued speculations about his potential transition to LIV Golf, especially considering the substantial offers made to other prominent PGA Tour players.
Ranked No. 3 in the Official World Golf Ranking [OWGR], Rahm reached a career milestone in the 2022-23 season by clinching four victories on the PGA Tour for the first time.
