Abraham Ancer and Brooks Koepka, two major players on the PGA Tour, were hired by the Saudi-sponsored LIV Golf Invitational Series. In response to news that Brooks Koepka is the newest PGA Tour player to defect to the Saudi-sponsored event, Collin Morikawa attacked the LIV Golf Invitational Series and golf media.
The four-time major champion Koepka is expected to sign on as the latest well-known player in the lucrative LIV Golf series. The second 54-hole, a 48-player tournament in Portland, Oregon, scheduled for next month, with a £20 million prize pool, is expected to include the 32-year-old, as per Yahoo.

Two-time major champion Morikawa posted on Twitter. At my press conference last week I said that the media loves drama.

“To state for the record, once again, you all are absolutely wrong. I’ve said it since February at Riviera that I’m here to stay on the @PGATOUR and nothing has changed. Now if you’ll excuse me, I’ve got some cereal to pour in my milk.”
By signing a huge deal with former world No. 1 Greg Norman, Koepka has joined the list of celebrities who have followed Phil Mickelson’s example. He follows Dustin Johnson, Ian Poulter, Sergio Garcia, Lee Westwood, and Bryson de Chambeau in making the switch. These players are all following in their footsteps.
The LIV Golf series made its debut last weekend at The Centurion Club in St. Albans, which was eagerly anticipated. Among the numerous well-known figures in the field were Phil Mickelson, Dustin Johnson, and Sergio Garcia. The 2011 Masters champion Charl Schwartzel won by one shot and received a £3.86 million bonus.
The most lucrative golf competition in history is the LIV series, which is supported by Saudi Arabia. The Public Investment Fund (PIF) of Saudi Arabia is funding the lucrative eight-event series, which has a prize pool of just over £200 million for 2022. An extra £1.6 billion is reportedly in place to increase the event’s size to a 14-event league by 2024.
