Rahm joins LIV

Jon Rahm, the world number three and two-time major champion, has made a shocking move to join LIV golf, the rival tour backed by the Saudi Arabian government. Rahm, who won the Masters and the U.S. Open in 2023 has reportedly been paid a massive $450 million to join the LIV series. Rahm’s decision to join LIV golf has sparked a lot of controversy and criticism, as many see it as a betrayal of the PGA Tour and the European Tour, the traditional and established circuits that have nurtured and supported his career.

Rahm’s move to LIV golf has also raised questions about his eligibility and participation in future events, such as the Ryder Cup, the Olympics, and the majors. Rahm has played in three consecutive Ryder Cups, helping Team Europe to win in 2018 and 2023, and has also represented Spain in the Olympics, winning a bronze medal in 2020.

Rahm’s move to LIV golf has also had an impact on the golfing landscape, as it has increased the competition and rivalry between LIV golf and the PGA Tour and the European Tour. Rahm is the biggest and most influential player to join LIV golf so far, and he could attract more players to follow his footsteps, especially from Europe and Latin America, where he has a strong fan base and influence.

In conclusion, Jon Rahm’s move to join LIV golf is one of the most significant and controversial events in the history of golf, as it has changed the dynamics and direction of the sport. Rahm has joined LIV golf for a record-breaking deal, but he has also risked his reputation and legacy, and faced a lot of challenges and uncertainties. Rahm’s move to LIV golf has also affected the golfing world, as it has created more competition and conflict, but also more excitement and interest. Rahm’s move to LIV golf is a bold and brave decision, and only time will tell if it was the right one.
