Despite PGA Tour suspension for joining LIV Golf, Jon Rahm might join the DP World Tour next month. Unlike the PGA Tour, the DP World Tour requires event releases for LIV Golf members. With LIV's season starting in February, Rahm could play in the Middle East swing.

According to many, the rules in the golf scene are perplexing, making it challenging to anticipate Rahm's future plans. However, his decision to join LIV Golf will undoubtedly bring significant changes. The Spaniard was fully aware of this uncertainty, contemplating for an extended period whether to prioritize increased earnings and join LIV Golf.

Potential revisions include a merger, pending an agreement between the PIF and the PGA Tour. Alternatively, rule adjustments could be considered. Rahm took a gamble with this move, causing the question: Can he truly achieve his goals?

Unable to defend his titles in the US due to PGA Tour restrictions, Rahm eyes the Dubai Invitational and Dubai Desert Classic.

As a DP World Tour member, he has flexibility to decide two weeks before the tournaments. Rahm has shown interest in the Spanish Open, affirming his commitment to the DP World Tour. Jon Rahm's decision did not cause many positive reactions.

Many are furious, given that Rahm was a key player on the PGA Tour. However, it is too late to change things. For him, the most crucial thing is the backing he got from his colleague Rory McIlroy. McIlroy is pushing for changes in golf rules to ensure Rahm gets a chance to play in the Ryder Cup.

Rahm was quick to thank McIlroy for standing up for him.


"I have so much respect for Rory McIlroy and to have his support right away is very, very special. It's almost emotional to hear about it."- Jon Rahm said.
