Jon Rahm says Tiger hasn’t spoken to him since he joined LIV

When Jon Rahm joined LIV golf, it sent shockwaves throughout the world of professional golf and changed the landscape of the game as we know it.

The reigning Masters champion took a large sum of money to start his own team on LIV, “Legion XIII”.

While speaking with ESPN’s Marty Smith, the Spaniard revealed that he reached out to arguably the two biggest names in golf after his decision, Tiger Woods and Rory McIlroy.

Rory was supportive of Rahm and has even said he wants to make sure Rahm can continue to play on the European Ryder Cup team as well.

“Rory has been supportive publicly of my decision and he was privately as well.”

McIlroy also told Gary Neville of “The Overlap”, “I was maybe a little judgmental of the guys who went to LIV Golf at the start, I think it was a bit of a mistake on my part because I now realize that not everyone is in my position or in Tiger Woods’ position.”

When Rahm was asked if he’d heard from Tiger, he shared that he had not.

“Tiger? No, not really, I mean, Tiger, I texted him and the people that try to reach out, you know, the process, when I signed and I just let him know, ‘Hey, you know, this is a personal decision.’

I think he’s [too] busy enough to be talking to me.”

Rahm will tee it up this week at LIV Jeddah looking for his first win on the circuit.

    Irt seems to me that the LIV guys will experience some serious cuts in the sponsorships. They aren’t on TV eve3ry weekend, news is on page four, column three of the sports section and no one hears their names anymore. The sponsors have to see that diminished exposure and will act accordingly. I would guess they keep statistics on visibility on TV , magazines or the news. They are all disappearing.
