We should of course point out that some players do change their mind about LIV Golf, but this is significant for Schauffele and Cantlay.
Both players were widely rumoured in 2022 to be very interested in joining Greg Norman's LIV.
Schauffele released a statement in February saying he didn't believe LIV Golf was a viable product after talks with the breakaway tour.
Even before LIV Golf had hit a tee shot, Cantlay described being "a curious observer".
Times have changed and it's fair to say LIV has definitely upset the status quo.
In early November, Schauffele joined the No Laying Up podcast to talk about the rumours.
He told the podcast:
The American Express will be played over 16-22 January at PGA West. It will have a prize purse of $8m. It is not an elevated event.
In October, the PGA Tour added four additional events to the 13 previously announced 'elevated' events, all of which will have increased purse sizes and guaranteed appearances from top players.
The Phoenix Open, RBC Heritage, Wells Fargo Championship and Travelers Championship will have $20m prize purses in 2023.
The Players, the three FedExCup Playoff events, the three invitationals (Genesis, Bay Hill, Memorial), the WGC Match Play and the Tournament of Champions also have 'elevated' status, alongside the four majors.
