The LIV Golf rumour mill shows no signs of slowing down and the latest player linked with a move away from the PGA Tour is none other than Si Woo Kim. 

According to Handicap54, the 27-year-old South Korean is being targeted by the tour commissioned by Greg Norman

Though it's fair to say that at this point it's hard to think of a player who hasn't been approached. 

Very clearly, there is an awful lot of conjecture with regards to potential signings. 

Most recently, Sergio Garcia appeared to essentially confirm that Mito Pereira would be joining the LIV Golf League from 2023 after he was pictured in a charity day organised by the Spaniard.

Handicp54 also claims that two players also on the brink of quitting the PGA Tour - Patrick Cantlay and Xander Schauffele - have held discussions with Phil Mickelson

Schauffele confirmed in February 2022 that he did hold discussions with LIV Golf but ultimately was persuaded to stay put for the time being as he wasn't fully convinced by Saudi-financed tour. 

He previously said: 

"We have met and discussed with representatives of SGL/LIV, only to come to the conclusion that the SGL isn't close to a finished product or business model." 

Schauffele reportedly is still 50/50 over his decision. The New York Post claimed on 10 November that Schauffele was staying put despite reports suggesting his deal was signed and sealed. 

The LIV Golf League will play 14 events in 2023, with total prize money reaching a whopping $405m

Just this week it was confirmed that The Grange Country Club in Adelaide will host one of LIV's $25m events next April. 

The aforementioned Norman said he could not have achieved this without the help of Cameron Smith

Smith, the 150th Open Champion, has also made another impassioned plea for LIV Golf players not to be banned from the majors in 2023. 

This was after he told of what "irked me most" about the angst created by LIV Golf.

As for LIV, they are clearly targeting the Asian market. It is no secret that they would like to have Hideki Matsuyama on their roster. 

The Japanese superstar - who is struggling with injuries in 2022 - was reportedly torn between money and legacy over a potential move. 

Kim is a three-time PGA Tour winner. He turned professional in 2012, captured his first victory in 2016 at the Wyndham Championship and also took down the Players in 2017. 

However, since then he has somewhat struggled to live up to his full potential.

He was a member of the International Presidents Cup team in 2022 at Quail Hollow Club. Kim memorably pulled out the "shhh" move in his match against Justin Thomas

Thomas later said that this annoyed him. 

Kim was also the player Kevin Na was talking about when he said this about going on a recruitment drive. 

Who do you think LIV Golf will sign next? Do you care? Or are you simply bored of all the LIV Golf chatter?
