Masters Champion Jon Rahm Agreed to Massive Deal to Join LIV Golf: Report

Reigning Masters champion and Jon Rahm has reportedly agreed to leave the PGA Tour and join LIV Golf League, sources with knowledge of the situation confirmed to ESPN's Mark Schlabach on Thursday (December 7).

The agreement between Rahm, currently No. 3 overall in the World Golf Rankings, and LIV Gold is reported to be a three-year deal "worth more than $300 million plus an ownership stake in a new LIV team," sources confirmed to Schlabach.

LIV Golf is expected to officially announce Rahm's signing on Thursday pending "a last-minute change of heart" from the Spaniard. The reported move comes amid ongoing discussions between the PGA Tour and LIV Golf's owner, Saudi Arabia's Public Investment Fund, attempting to finalize an agreement to merge the two leagues into a new for-profit entity, PGA Tour Enterprises, which was initially reached in June.
