Brooks Koepka is set to quit the PGA Tour and join the Saudi-backed LIV Golf Invitational series.
The four-time major winner has removed all references to the PGA Tour from his social media profiles and will tee it up in the second event in Portland next week.
The 32-year-old dual US Open and PGA Championship winner is set to become the latest major champion from America to join the series, following Dustin Johnson, Bryson DeChambeau and Phil Mickelson. Mexico’s Abraham Ancer, currently ranked No.20 in the world, will also be joining the LIV series next week.
It was announced earlier this month any players involved in the LIV Series would be indefinitely suspended from the PGA Tour. A letter confirming that was sent to PGA Tour members by commissioner Jay Monahan shortly after the opening LIV Golf tournament got under way at Centurion Club in Hertfordshire on June 9.
The DP World Tour is still yet to make an official announcement on its stance on its members playing the series, although its strategic alliance with the PGA Tour means that it will be under pressure to follow the PGA Tour’s lead.
