Brooks Koepka will become the latest golfer to leave the PGA Tour in favor of the Saudi-backed LIV International Golf Series.
According to a report from Mark Schlabach of ESPN.com, the 32-year-old Koepka, who is the No. 19 ranked golfer in the Official World Golf Ranking, is expected to compete in a LIVE Golf event at Pumpkin Ridge in Portland, Oregon beginning on June 30.
An official announcement will be made in the coming days.
Koepka previously commented on LIV Golf by saying Mickelson was “greedy” for his decision, while saying reporters were using the alternate tour to cast a “black cloud” over the U.S. Open.
As it turns out, securing the bag changed his mind.
Koepka joins other high-profile golfers like Bryson DeChambeau, Phil Mickelson, Dustin Johnson, Patrick Reed, and Abraham Ancer. Players who competed in the first-ever LIV Golf tournament were suspended by PGA Tour commissioner Jay Monahan.
