It has been rumored for months that Jon Rahm could join LIV Golf. Regardless of the fact that the Spaniard has confirmed several times so far that he has no such intention, many believe that Rahm is not being honest this time.
Jon Rahm's every decision is carefully watched. The best example of this is withdrawal from TGL's inaugural season. Many understood it in a different way. However, now the rumors have become even stronger after a social media post by Alan Shipnuck.
He emphasized via social media that Phil Mickelson has been confirming for days that Jon Rahm's signing with LIV is a done deal. "In recent days Phil has been telling folks that Rahm signing with LIV is a done deal (they share the same agent.
But we all know Mickelson is a relentless salesman/b* artist so take that for what it's worth."- Alan Shipnuck wrote on X.
Phil Mickelson reacts to Shipnuck's post
Phil Mickelson seemed shocked by Shipnuck's post. He immediately took advantage of the moment and denied through social media that he had said anything.
Mickelson was harsh and emphasized that Alan is a big liar. There are obviously certain sparks between them. Their relationship has not been ideal for years. “This isn’t true, and I don’t know anything. I don’t want to know anything, and I haven’t said anything.
Alan is the worst liar and a pathetic human."- Mickelson said. Right now, it's hard to say who's really telling the truth. We'll have to wait and see if Shipnuck got it wrong or if Mickelson's keeping something under wraps. Jon Rahm's words suggest he's leaning towards staying on the PGA Tour. But you know how quickly people can change their minds. It's tricky to predict what's going to happen next.
