The Golf world was in for a surprise earlier today, as Brooks Koepka became the latest PGA Tour player to jump the ship to the LIV Golf. The news was upsetting for many of his fans, along with his former fellow PGA Tour colleagues. One of that colleagues is none other than Justin Thomas who liked a post on Instagram which mocked Koepka.

Before him joining the LIV Golf, Brooks Koepka was one of the most vocal PGA Tour players to be against the Saudi-backed Tour. He openly criticized the Tour and also labeled Phil Mickelson as “greedy” for joining the LIV Golf. Koepka now joins his good friend Bryson DeChambeau, who also joined the LIV Golf recently. Both stars will make their LIV Golf debut next week in Oregon.
