Wow another HUGE name defecting from the PGA

In a deal that could have a far-reaching impact on the future landscape of men's professional golf and inject even more uncertainty into an already-fractured sport, Masters champion Jon Rahm has agreed to leave the PGA Tour for the Saudi Arabian-financed LIV Golf League, sources confirmed to ESPN on Thursday.

LIV Golf is expected to announce Rahm's addition Thursday, barring a last-minute change of heart from the former world No. 1 player, the sources said.

The deal is believed to be longer than three years, is worth more than $300 million and will include an ownership stake for Rahm in a new LIV Golf team, according to sources. LIV Golf is recruiting additional PGA Tour players to fill out the roster of Rahm's team.

Rahm's decision comes at a time when the PGA Tour and Saudi Arabia's Public Investment Fund are attempting to hammer out the final details of a framework agreement that would combine their commercial interests into a new for-profit entity, PGA Tour Enterprises.

I’m not into golf and don’t follow it at all. What’s the big uproar over two leagues? Doesn’t it provide more opportunities overall ?

LIV is owned by Saudi’s Arabia and considered dirty money. Just stupid imo. If the PGA wasn’t such a mess they wouldn’t have to worry about this happening. Soon LIV will have the better roster
