However, attention now turns to dispatches, where the PGA Tour is in negotiations with the Saudi Public Interest Fund (PIF) ahead of the December 31 deadline.

The agreement agreed in June seems to be in danger, as both parties feel betrayed and positions are increasingly distant. Despite Saudi's generosity in financially compensating players tempted to join its league in 2022, the PGATour has treated them as inferiors, causing mistrust on both sides and making it difficult to find a satisfactory solution.

News: A single woman named 'Bambi' tries to flirt with Carlos Sobera, revealing his particular origin. Furthermore, Rory McIlroy believes that Jon Rahm's decision will change the rules of the Ryder Cup. On the PGA Tour, they consider that this move has broken the tacit non-aggression agreement.

Tony Finau and another relevant player are also expected to change tours, which will tighten negotiations between the PGA Tour commissioner and the PIF CEO. On the other hand, the entry of the Strategic Sports Group, majority shareholder of Liverpool F.C., changes the perspectives.

There is talk of possible alliances with both funds, which could generate exorbitant income in golf, a sport currently in a hyperinflationary phase. Jon Rahm plays golf for the Arizona State Sun Devils, winning 11 college tournaments.

He is a two-time recipient of the Ben Hogan Award3. He remained number one in the world amateur rankings for 60 weeks and received the Mark H. McCormack Medal in 2015. He won the Eisenhower Trophy with Spain in 2014. He was the best amateur at the 2016 US Open, finishing in 23rd place with a score of +7 over par.
