The PGA Tour has lost one more prominent player to the LIV Golf Invitational Series. Brooks Koepka has already removed the American golf organization’s name from his Twitter bio! 

Neither the 4-time major champion nor the LIV Golf has admitted the news. However, his withdrawal from this week’s Travelers Championship has strengthened the rumors.

For PGA Tour fans, the news is somewhat depressing, as they have lost one of their prominent players to the Saudi-backed golf league. However, they won’t be after watching the funny interpretation of Conor Moore about the golfer’s introduction to the rest of the LIV Golf players. 

Moore mocks Brooks Koepka and the other LIV Golf players! 

Conor Moore is an actor, comedian, and impressionist. He is famous for his voice imitation videos on the PGA Tour golfers. Moore imitated Phil Mickelson, Ian Poulter, Dustin Johnson, Koepka, Bryson DeChambeau, and others in the video. Notably, the comedian copied the golfer’s actions and voice perfectly. 

“London? Oh, it was amazing,” Poulter shared his experience in playing the first LIV event at the Centurion Club to Koepka. “Lots of money!” Moore, as Poulter, added.

The actor even added how the players always share that they joined the league for its progressive format, not money. Interestingly, other than DeChambeau, no prominent players have openly admitted money as one of the reasons to play in the league. 

The most hilarious part in the video was in the end when DeChambeau enters the room with his protein powder and how Koepka became uncomfortable with being happy. The two golfers are known for their professional rivalry. 

Notably, Moore had made another video on the LIV Golf, which also featured Ian Poulter’s character. In the video, his characters shared how much the LIV CEO Greg Norman offered them to play in the league.

Apart from the $225 million total purse money for the LIV Golf Invitational Series, the organization is paying players to sign contracts.

Although he joined LIV for its progressive mindset, Mickelson is one of the few players to receive more than $100 million. According to reports, the 6-time major winner has received a $200 million offer.  DJ and DeChambeau have also received a 9-digit amount to sign the contract. Although Koepka has likely joined the league, his appearance fee is yet to be revealed.
