Jon Rahm recently decided not to play TGL, which automatically caused reactions. Many believe that this also means his departure to LIV Golf. However, his colleagues are not sure about that. They believe that the Spaniard will remain part of the PGA Tour.

In an interview with the media, Rory McIlroy revealed that he had an interesting conversation with Rahm and confirmed that the Spaniard will not leave the PGA Tour. "I spoke to Jon a couple days ago and would be very very surprised if that were to happen...

I'm pretty confident Jon is a PGA TOUR player."- Rahm said.

Jon Rahm and his ideas

Jon Rahm was clear a few months ago that his idea was to stay on the PGA Tour. Despite the fact that he received a huge amount of money from LIV Golf, Rahm did not have many dilemmas; He refused such an offer.

To play on the PGA Tour, which has tradition and history, is the dream of every golfer. In many cases, money decides, but for now, Rahm obviously does not play golf primarily for money. "It was my choice to stay. Do I think they absolutely should be and there must be a compensation? No.

I just stayed because I think it's the best choice for myself and for the golf I want to play," - Jon Rahm said. "Now, with that said, if they want to do it, I'm not going to say no. We all had the chance to go to LIV and take the money and we chose to stay at the PGA Tour for whatever reason we chose.

As I've said before, I already make an amazing living doing what I do. I'm extremely thankful, and that all happened because of the platform the PGA Tour provided me. As far as I'm concerned they've done enough for me, and their focus should be on improving the PGA Tour and the game of golf for the future generations." Source: Golfmonthly
