The golf world is always buzzing with rumors, and the recent speculation surrounding Jon Rahm only added to the excitement.
When Rahm decided to withdraw from TGL’s first season, many speculated that he would be the next big name to join LIV Golf. This speculation was fueled by the removal of Rahm’s name and image from TGL’s website. However, Rahm took to X (formerly Twitter) to dispel the rumors, confirming that he would not be participating in the new technology-infused golf league backed by Tiger Woods, Rory McIlroy, and the PGA Tour.
“I am sad to confirm that I will not be participating in the first TGL season,” Rahm wrote. “While I still think it’s a great opportunity, right now it would require a level of commitment that I can’t offer.”
TGL also released a statement expressing their understanding of Rahm’s decision and their respect for it. “We will miss [Rahm] during the inaugural TGL season. We understand that players have to balance a lot of different facets of their professional and personal lives and respect Jon’s choice and wish him well.”
Despite Rahm’s previous commitment to the PGA Tour, rumors continued to circulate about his potential move to LIV Golf. Even Golf Channel analyst Brandel Chamblee entertained the idea, but Rory McIlroy dispelled these rumors by expressing his confidence that Rahm is firmly entrenched as a PGA Tour player.
