Jon Rahm's future has been the main topic for several weeks. Many are wondering if the Spaniard will leave the PGA Tour and join LIV Golf. The decision not to play at TGL was one of the reasons why the rumors increased. The question is whether Rahm will really stay, but judging by the words of Rory McIlroy, one thing is certain: the Spaniard remains part of the PGA Tour!
"I spoke to Jon a couple days ago and would be very very surprised if that were to happen... I'm pretty confident Jon is a PGA TOUR player."- Jon Rahm said.
Jon Rahm reveals his plans
Jon Rahm has been clear about his future many times up until now.
The Spaniard plans to remain part of the PGA Tour despite the offers he receives. LIV Golf tried to lure him in various ways, but Rahm is a person who is not interested in money at the moment. He wanted to remain a part of the competition in which he gained fame and achieved success.
His goal is to do the same in the future. "It was my choice to stay. Do I think they absolutely should be and there must be a compensation? No. I just stayed because I think it's the best choice for myself and for the golf I want to play," - Jon Rahm said.
"Now, with that said, if they want to do it, I'm not going to say no. We all had the chance to go to LIV and take the money and we chose to stay at the PGA Tour for whatever reason we chose. As I've said before, I already make an amazing living doing what I do." He is happy that the PGA Tour gave him the chance to become the golfer he is today.
He hopes that the PGA Tour will go in the right direction and progress as it has so far. Although he is aware that many things have changed since LIV Golf came to an end, his optimism does not abate. I'm extremely thankful, and that all happened because of the platform the PGA Tour provided me.
As far as I'm concerned they've done enough for me, and their focus should be on improving the PGA Tour and the game of golf for the future generations." Source: Golfmonthly
