After months of speculation, Hideki Matsuyama has announced that he will not be joining LIV Golf and will continue to play on the PGA TOUR.
The winner of the 2019 Masters Hideki Matsuyama has announced that he will not give in to the sirens of the LIV circuit of Greg Norman. The Japanese who would have received fabulous proposals from the PIF (Saudi Arabia’s Public Investment Fund), for an amount of 400 million dollars, therefore remains faithful to the great American circuit on which he hatched.
“Because quite simply, I belong there”he said through a translator.
After the announcement of the departure of the world number 3 winner of The Open, Cameron Smith and the confirmed arrivals of Marc Leishman, Joaquin Niemann, Harold Varner III, there will therefore be no new sensational announcements at the dawn of the next stage of the LIV in Bangkok at the beginning of October.
Matsuyama, who competed in his fifth Presidents Cup this week on the international team, spoke from Charlotte, North Carolina.
