Jon Rahm Signs Record-Breaking 900 Million Deal to Join Rebel Competition, in Partnership with Greg Norman and the PGA Tour

Jon Rahm, a two-time major champion, has signed a significant deal with LIV Golf, which will have a substantial impact on the PGA Tour. LIV Golf has previously attracted big names such as Dustin Johnson, Brooks Koepka, and Cameron Smith from the American circuit with generous paydays. However, Rahm, who is currently ranked as the world’s No.3 player and highly favored among fans, joining LIV Golf is considered a game-changer. Reports suggest Rahm’s LIV contract will be valued at over $300 million for more than three years, with LIV Golf Commissioner and CEO Greg Norman expressing great excitement over the signing. The deal also includes Rahm having an ownership stake in a 13th team within LIV. His decision to join LIV Golf is a significant move, especially after his previous criticism of the tournament style. Rahm’s move will not only impact his career but also the European Tour as well. Despite some backlash on social media accusing Rahm of hypocrisy, his decision reflects the changing landscape of professional golf.
