Brooks Koepka the latest to leave PGA Tour for LIV

Brooks Koepka will reportedly soon announce that he is leaving the PGA Tour to join the LIV Golf Invitational.

His brother Chase awaits him in the breakaway competition and he’ll even be able to keep his rivalry with Bryson DeChambeau alive.

According to The Telegraph, the American will receive a seven-figure cheque for joining the new league, which will distribute a global purse of 255 million dollars in its eight tournaments in 2022.

That’s after Koepka criticised the press after being asked about his opinion on the LIV during The Open Championship.

The former world number one – the fourth to join the circuit alongside Dustin Johnson, Martin Kaymer and Lee Westwood – saw his career dip dramatically after a slip he suffered in October 2019 during The CJ Cup, leading to a number of hip problems.

In 2021 Koepka performed well in the majors, even winning the Phoenix Open, although he has been inconsistent in recent months. In this year’s US Open he finished 55th after a good start.
