Brooks Koepka is reportedly among the recent golf professional who has shifted from the PGA Tour to the LIV Golf Invitational Series. He is receiving severe scrutiny for doing the same. Moreover, Paige Spiranac recently made a social media post along the same line while taking an indirect dig at Koepka and a fellow professional.

The 29-year-old tweeted about the news relating to Koepka shifting to the Saudi-backed golf league. She made the tweet using her official Twitter account on June 21, 2022. Moreover, in the tweet, the former golf professional mentioned that the four-time major championship winner’s decision to move to the rival tour was not a surprise. At the same time, Spiranac took an indirect dig at another famous player who recently joined the Saudi-backed golf league, Bryson DeChambeau.

The social media star tweeted, “Brooks Koepka going to LIV is not surprising. He’s said he only cares about majors and finding new ways to make Bryson’s life miserable.” Not to forget, both the PGA Tour professionals have a history with each other. The feud started probably in 2019 after Brooks made a comment on DeChambeau’s slow play. Moreover, both players played the Match in 2021.

The report about the 32-year-old joining the new golf league came to light via the Telegraph on Tuesday. According to the report, Koepka will play in the second LIV Golf event in Portland. The report is a surprise, as he was the second player to speak against the rival league in 2020. Not to forget, the American professional spoke about the same last week at the U.S. Open. He said, “I don’t know why you guys keep doing that. The more legs you give it, the more you keep talking about it.”
