Jon Rahm's move to LIV Golf took everyone by surprise. Despite earlier statements suggesting otherwise, the Spaniard engaged in negotiations with LIV Golf leaders and ultimately made an intriguing decision. Rahm's arrival caused reactions from numerous golfers and experts.

Justin Rose believes the PGA Tour stands to lose while LIV Golf gains. This great golfer wonders if Rahm's move signals the arrival of more players. "This is a huge part of the jigsaw puzzle that you’ve seen Jon go,” Rose told Sports Illustrated, as quoted by golfmonthly.com!

“And then I don’t know who else goes with Jon. I mean, obviously if it’s just Jon, that’s bad enough. What does that mean now to the trickle if it’s Jon plus a trickle?”

Justin Rose: Jon Rahm is a huge coup for LIV

Rose once again emphasized what he had said before.

The golf scene is currently in chaos, especially when we consider the merger. There is still no agreement between LIV Golf and the PGA Tour, and the deadline is December 31. Some believe that there are several obstacles to reaching a solution and reaching an agreement.

Perhaps this is exactly the reason for the frustration on the part of LIV Golf, who decided to pay huge money for the best. "Jon's a huge coup for LIV obviously and a huge blow for the PGA Tour, and it definitely comes at a very interesting time where I think there's a lot of negotations happening at the moment," Rose said.

"I think we know that there's some type of 31st December deadline amongst talks between PGA Tour and whoever it may be, you know potential investors into the tour and merger talks and all these things that I think are quite confusing for people from the outside looking in about why this is kind of all going down.

You can look at it both ways, maybe things are not going well on one side of things and the recruiting is starting pretty hard again on that. It's a big statement and big news and yeah, tough for the PGA Tour to lose Rahmbo for sure."
