NEW: RAHM RIPS INTO OWGR!
It also understood Garcia has now let his DP World Tour membership expire.
The latter decision would also mean his record European Ryder Cup career would come to an end.
While Rahm does not believe golf fans exactly care where his fellow Spaniard Garcia plays his golf these days, he does consider his move to LIV Golf will unlikely benefit his legacy moving forwards.
Jon Rahm said:
Garcia was heavily fined for walking out of the BMW PGA Championship when giving no explanation for his WD.
He withdrew after just 18 holes in the flagship DP World Tour event of the season having shot an opening round of 76.
That tournament was reduced to 54 holes following the death of Queen Elizabeth II.
Eddie Pepperell said it was "pathetic".
According to one DP World Tour player, Garcia also ranted to players that they were "all f*****" after the latest LIV Golf news.
One golf analyst recently labelled Garcia as the "most unprofessional" golfer ever.
Rory McIlroy also told how he felt a "sense of "betrayal" from the likes of LIV Golf players such as Garcia.
Rahm recently denied a rumour on social media that he was about to join Garcia over on LIV Golf.
Elsewhere for Rahm today...
Rahm was officially presented with Honorary Life Membership of the DP World Tour by CEO Keith Pelley ahead of this week's DP World Tour Championship.
He was given the honour after winning the 2021 US Open but because he was not able to participate in the DP World Tour Championship last season, Pelley made the presentation earlier today in front of GolfMagic and the rest of the golfing media.
Pelley said: "It is an honour to have a true star, superstar, a legend already that supports the DP World Tour and loves Europe and is really a game-changer any time he plays.
"So Jon, this is well overdue. This is merely the formality, the presentation of your Honorary Membership on the DP World Tour. Congratulations."
Rahm admitted it was an honour and privilege to now enter the European Tour's record books.
"Well, you know, that's something when I started my pro career, I didn't know it was a possibility. But I think it was 2017 when I was playing in Valderrama, that Tuesday or Wednesday dinner hosted by Sergio's foundation and he was presented, it might have been 2018, he was presented with the life -- Honorary Life Membership, and I was present. I was present when he won the Masters and he was present when he was awarded with this great honour.
"To join the list of the icons that have earned it, it is truly an honour. I've said many times, any time in our small country, golf-wise, any time you can write your name in history next to some of the greatest that have accomplished this before me is very unique. To keep doing things like this, is a true honour to represent Spain. It's a true honour to receive it, so thank you."
England's Matt Fitzpatrick was also presented with Honorary Life Membership on the DP World Tour this week, after emulating Rahm's US Open triumph earlier this season.
