Brooks Koepka Leaving PGA Tour For LIV Golf Series

It’s officially panic time for the PGA Tour.

Brooks Koepka, one of the biggest names in all of golf, is reportedly leaving the PGA Tour behind and heading to the LIV Golf Series.

Multiple sources have confirmed that the four-time Major champ will join the Saudi-backed super golf league as soon as next week when LIV tees off for a tournament in Portland, Oregon.

Koepka is just the latest in a long line of big-name former PGA Tour players to ditch the Tour in favor of LIV. Amongst the players who have already done so are Dustin Johnson, Phil Mickelson, Sergio Garcia, Ian Poulter, Lee Westwood, and Koepka rival, Bryson DeChambeau.

LIV Golf is expected to officially announce the 32-year-old Koepka’s addition prior to the end of this week. He’s currently ranked as the 19th-best pro golfer in the world, according to Official World Golf Ranking. Once he officially joins LIV, he’ll be one of eight top-50 golfers to do so, joining Johnson and Patrick Reed.

Many of the golfers who have linked up with LIV reportedly received nine-figure paydays to do so. In turn, the PGA Tour’s poorly thought-out response has been to ban players from competing in their events if they opt to tee it up with LIV.

That’s been of little bother to those ex-PGAers now walking LIV courses.

As more golfers continue to defect and cash in, the PGA Tour will likely have no choice but to allow players who compete in LIV to also play the Tour. An increase in event purses and appearance fees for event participants, are other options the PGA Tour may be forced to consider.

For now, the PGA Tour has no choice but to waive goodbye to Koepka and new wife Jena Sims – a power couple who regularly generate interest and eyeballs in any event Brooks is associated with.

  1. All doing it for the money, I will say it now like I did with crypto, LIV will not be around in 2 years. Brooks needs the money for his new chick! Money mongers, plus he ain’t winning much else on PGA

    • Why are you Stanning for the PGA? lol.. LIV started last week, of course they don’t have majors or a fan base. I guess LIV sucks if you hate capitalism and love monopolies.

      Also, crypto isn’t going anywhere. If anything you should buy some Ethereum on this dip.

  2. Brooks has been one of my top 3 favorites if this is true screw him.Money grab but would think he’s pretty set, guessing his injuries might be worse than letting people know because his game hasn’t produced recently.

  3. To those condemning the guys opting for the LIV ….. Is it because of “the Saudi Thing”? If so, would you be hating on the LIV guys if it was The Elon Musk Tour? … or insert name of XYZ billionaire.
    .
    Pro Sports has a long history of “upstart leagues” … AFL, ABA, et al. Some make it … other don’t … USFL, WFL, etc.
    .
    And thus far …. all the LIV guys CAN still play in the Four Majors. If THAT changes they might think twice about jumping.
