Spieth committed to PGA, denies LIV link

Three-time major winner and former world No. 1 Jordan Spieth has dismissed rumors he is planning to join LIV Golf as “categorically untrue”.

LIV has lured big winners including Phil Mickelson, Dustin Johnson, Brooks Koepka and Bryson DeChambeau with huge sums of money, while others like Spieth and Rory McIlroy have said they plan to stick with the PGA tours and DPWorld.

“Let’s be clear, any reports that I am considering competing anywhere other than the PGA Tour are categorically false,” Spieth tweeted after shooting a 72 in the second round of the Scottish Open.

“I am not in discussion with LIV. I have been quoted officially for months that I fully support the PGA Tour and have never considered an alternative.

“My focus hasn’t changed since I started playing golf – winning PGA Tour events and major championships, and competing against the best players in the world. Those who really know me know what’s most important. for me.”

The $255 million (A$371 million) LIV series is being funded by Saudi Arabia’s Public Investment Fund (PIF), which critics say is a way for the country to improve its image amid to criticism over its human rights record.

McIlroy said this week that the escalating tension between the golf tours is “dividing the game” and called on the sides to hold talks to find common ground.
