Phil Mickelson and Brooks Koepka were just two LIV Golf players to revel in the bombshell news.
That bombshell news? The PGA Tour, DP World Tour and LIV Golf are merging.
The surprising announcement came a year after unprecedented disruption in men's professional golf following LIV's launch last June.
"This is a historic day for the game we all know and love," said PGA Tour commissioner Jay Monahan of the agreement that has been signed.
That agreement will combine the PGA and LIV's commercial rights into a new, yet-to-be-named for-profit company.
Which brings us to Mickelson.
He has been absolutely adamant that the truth will come out eventually and that LIV will ultimately be a good thing for the sport.
Here's how he reacted to the news:
Awesome day today https://t.co/qUwVJiydym— Phil Mickelson (@PhilMickelson) June 6, 2023
And Brooks Koepka?

Koepka, of course, is referring to Brandel Chamblee, who has been one of the harshest critics of LIV even before its inception.
Chamblee called for Mickelson to be removed from the Hall of Fame following his decision to join LIV, accusing those who signed with the breakaway tour as sportswashing.
Mickelson and Chamblee have traded blows on social media in recent weeks.

Koepka's coach Claude Harmon III also went on a huge rant to Golfweek following the conclusion of the PGA Championship.
The shock deal appears to have happened without the knowledge of many PGA Tour members.
Collin Morikawa reacted by saying: "I love finding out morning news on Twitter."
Wesley Bryan wrote: "I feel betrayed, and will not not be able to trust anyone within the corporate structure of the PGA Tour for a very long time."
