It’s been rumored, floated and discussed for the last few weeks, but now the news is official: Jon Rahm is leaving the PGA Tour in his rearview mirror and opting to play for the Saudi Arabia-backed LIV Golf League.
The No. 3 player in the world is coming off a four-win season on Tour, including his second major championship at the Masters in April.
Rahm has followed his good buddies Sergio Garcia and Phil Mickelson to the Greg Norman-led circuit, a move that is surprising given everything he has said in the past about the two leagues.
Here are some of the best reactions to the Rahm-LIV Golf news from across social media.
