The LIV Golf Invitational Series is trying to position itself as a competitor against the PGA Tour. The Saudi-backed operation headed by Greg Norman has garnered some support across golf — most notably Phil Mickelson — but most of the top-tier players were more comfortable staying on the tour.
However, LIV Golf did get one big win ahead of its first event in London. Dustin Johnson was among the 42 golfers who agreed to participate in the start-up's first event, which came as a surprise. After all, he had said that he was “fully committed to the PGA Tour” in February.
“I feel it is now time to put such speculation to rest. I am fully committed to the PGA Tour,” Johnson said, per ESPN. “I am grateful for the opportunity to play on the best tour in the world and for all it has provided me and my family.”
