With multiple names leaving the PGA Tour for LIV Golf, the atmosphere around golf can be described as tense. Rumors about players leaving have been around, most interested in a different format and an extensive paycheck. Following Brooks Koepka’s PGA Tour exit, players like Collin Morikawa have been linked to the Saudi-backed series.

However, judging by his recent statement, Morikawa seems happy with the PGA Tour. The 25-year-old blatantly denied the rumors, pledging loyalty to the PGA Tour. In fact, Morikawa claimed to be aware of his name being taken, eager to prove everyone wrong. However, Justin Thomas, on his end, seemed worried about something else entirely.
