Collin Morikawa is trying his best to squash rumors that he will be leaving the PGA Tour to join the Saudi-backed LIV Golf International Series.

Morikawa issued a brief statement on the speculation on Tuesday morning shortly after it was announced that four-time major champion Brooks Koepka would be leaving the PGA Tour for LIV Golf.

Morikawa once again said that he has no plans on leaving the PGA Tour and accused the media of stirring up drama.

“Just your #11 money winner on PIP here to say good morning to everyone! Last week at my press conference, I said the media loves creating drama. Sure enough, I woke up this morning to everyone thinking I’m next. Not to say I told you so but…I told you so” Morikawa wrote.

To state for the record, once again, you all are absolutely wrong. I’ve said it since February at Riviera that I’m here to stay on the @PGATOUR and nothing has changed. Now if you’ll excuse me, I’ve got some cereal to pour in my milk”

As for Koepka, he chose the bag over staying on the PGA Tour.

Koepka joins other high-profile golfers like Bryson DeChambeau, Phil Mickelson, Dustin Johnson, Patrick Reed, and Abraham Ancer in the Saudi-backed league. Players who competed in the first-ever LIV Golf tournament were suspended by PGA Tour commissioner Jay Monahan.
