Bubba Watson appears to have re-branded his LIV Golf League side, switching from Niblicks GC to the Range GOATS.
The new name was spotted on the side of Watson's cap in a promotional video for the breakaway tour, with the second season set to get underway later this month in Mexico.
Watson, 44, resigned his PGA Tour membership last August to join fellow American players Dustin Johnson, Bryson DeChambeau, Brooks Koepka and Phil Mickelson.
Mickelson, in particular, has returned to social media and is making some audacious claims.

Watson was a non-playing captain of the Niblicks in the LIV Golf Invitational Series in 2022. Instead, he served as an on course reporter and analyst.
He tore the meniscus in his right knee and was forced out of the game for more than eight months. Now he's made his return to the game.
Speaking before the PIF Saudi International, Watson painted a grim picture of just how gruesome his knee injury was.
The details were absolutely not for the squeamish. He discovered his meniscus had actually detached from the bone after the PGA Championship at Southern Hills.
Watson spoke of this then revealed he would beg PGA Tour commissioner Jay Monahan to let him play the 2023 PNC Championship with his son Caleb, despite severing ties with the North American circuit.
How golf fans reacted to the name change...
The apparent name change has not gone down too well with some golf fans.
Some comments included:
"I think we're on to something with LIV..."
The team aspect is meant to be a big driver for the success of LIV Golf. In 2022, the 4 Aces GC side dominated with DJ at the helm.
There are early reports that each team will eventually have their own jerseys.
Watson told the media that he reckons LIV are genuinely on to something.
