Until last night, LIV Golf-bound Brooks Koepka was still in the field for the forthcoming Travelers Championship on the PGA Tour.
Mysteriously, he has withdrawn. What could possibly be going on here? Has he suddenly acquired an injury? What gives, Brooksy?
Of course, the PGA Tour have not given an official on-the-record reason for his latest withdrawal. But we are reading between the lines, here.
Our exhaustive forensic analysis after seeing Koepka has taken out "PGA TOUR" from his Twitter leads us to believe his future is elsewhere.
Hubbard, 33, has not won on the PGA Tour yet. He was one of 15 alternates should players drop out this week.
Of course, if Koepka was LIV Golf bound for a reported massive pay day and he still played in the event it wouldn't feel right.
At least that was the consensus from Hubbard's brother Nathan:
It's *extra* cool of the guys who are bailing on the @pgatour to stay in the field this week and take spots from guys who are committed (and who could use both the check and the points) https://t.co/7BfDXMlWkD— Nathan Hubbard (@NathanCHubbard) June 21, 2022
Then he posted after Koepka's withdrawal:
It has not been revealed how much Koepka's deal with LIV Golf is reported to be worth.
The four-time major winner joins Phil Mickelson, Dustin Johnson, Patrick Reed, Bryson DeChambeau and Kevin Na in the series.
LIV Golf, backed by the Public Investment Fund of Saudi Arabia, have reportedly paid more than $500million on players so far.
But he quickly rejected those rumours. PGA Tour commissioner Jay Monahan held a meeting with the membership yesterday.
