Dustin Johnson Quits PGA Tour, Heads to LIV Golf

In a developing story, two-time major champion Dustin Johnson has announced that he is leaving the PGA Tour and heading to LIV Golf.

The 37-year-old Johnson will be leaving the tour immediately and is expected to play in all eight of the scheduled events for the inaugural Saudi-funded LIV Golf Invitational Series. Johnson’s decision comes one day after Phil Mickelson announced his decision to sign with the LIV Tour.

Thursday marks the first LIV event, which will be held from the Centurion Club in London. Johnson is slated to participate.

“I don’t want to play for the rest of my life, this gives me an opportunity to do what I want to do,” Johnson said in announcing his resignation from the PGA Tour. 

Doing so means he will no longer be eligible to compete in the Ryder Cup.

“The Ryder Cup is unbelievable and has meant a lot to me, but ultimately I decided this was best for me and my family,” added Johnson.

“All things are subject to change and hopefully at some point it will change and I will get a chance to do that again.”

This is a breaking story and OutKick will have more information as it develops.

  1. So when the PGA sanctions the Saudi International, that’s fine. But when Phil, DJ and others want to play on a Saudi-sponsored tour, all of a sudden “human rights” are at stake?

    The stench of hypocrisy from Chamblee and other talking heads in the media is overpowering.

  2. DJ should also know his new wife can’t be parading around half naked that shit don’t fly women are back of the bus treatment in those countries have a female friend who worked over in those countries Dubai etc not good
