Brooks Koepka, the last crack to join the Super League

Date:

Brooks Koepkadouble winner of the US Open and PGA, is the next star to join LIV Golf Series (Super League) to take part in the first event at United States (Portland), from June 30 to July 2, ESPN announced on Tuesday. Along with Koepka, 32, the Mexican will also join the Saudi project Abraham Ancer. They occupy positions 19 and 20 in the world golf rankings and will leave the PGA Tour for the Super League in the coming days.

The stream of defections already includes 8 of the top 50 in the World Ranking, including Bryson DeChambeau Y patrick tambo. Ancer left the US Open last week due to illness.

As friction between the players and the PGA Tour Commissioner Jay Monahan17 players were suspended from militancy on the American circuit, including Phil Mickelson, Dustin Johnson and Sergio Garcia.

The world top 5, Scottie Scheffler, Rory McIlroy Jon Rahm, Collin Morikawa and Justin Thomas stood up and turned a deaf ear to the millionaire’s offers to join the Super League. He also stated his position against leaving the PGA Tour, but Monahan is scheduled to sit down with the players Tuesday in Connecticut (he will give a press conference on Wednesday), home of the Travelers Championship that begins Thursday. Koepka signed up for the event.

The American circuit called all its members at the start of the event to explain to them what the answer would be to LIV Golf. Sources directly related to the PGA Tour commented on the portal ‘Ten Golf’ that the creation of a series of tournaments will be announced, between 10 and 15, with pool prizes of 20 million dollars and a reduced ‘field ‘, that is, only for the best FedEX Cup players. The exact number of tournaments and the prize pool remains to be determined.

ESPN reported that the PGA Tour’s player advisory council also met Tuesday before Monahan’s meeting.

Koepka was a close friend of Johnson and his brother Chase, played in the inaugural event in London. Injuries have slowed Brooks Koepka since he was No. 1 in the world in 47 weeks, posting consecutive wins at both the PGA Championship and US Open.
