Good riddance. He was one of the first tour members to come out and throw shade at LIV. Made the comment that the tour legacy and it's record book is more important than money to him. Hypocrite. Guess that money won out in the end. Gets $500 million and didn't have to play a shot. Unfortunately, winning the Masters this year allows him to play in all four majors for the next 5 years but I hope they ban him from participating in the Ryder Cup forever. The rich get richer...the wrong way.

That is not what’s happening. The PGA tour is currently negotiating a deal with the Saudi fund that sponsors LIV. So, players aren’t the only ones taking the money. When the deal commences, LIV will come under the control of the PGA tour and all of those guys who left will get shuffled back in. Rahm was smart to take the money before those deals disappear.
