One week after he dodged questions about leaving the PGA Tour for the lucrative Saudi-backed LIV Golf Invitational Series, word leaked on Tuesday that Brooks Koepka was indeed bidding the Tour adieu.
It was just the latest example of a pro joining the rival league after either dodging questions about their interest in it or completely contradicting previous statements.
“Am I surprised? Yes, because of what he said previously,” McIlroy said, when asked about Koepka. “I think that’s why I’m surprised at a lot of these guys because they say one thing and then they do another, and I don’t understand that and I don’t know if that’s for legal reasons or if they can’t — I have no idea. But it’s pretty duplicitous on their part to say one thing and then do another thing.”
