PGA Tour commissioner Jay Monahan has issued a firm 'no policy' response for if and when a player wants to return to the American circuit from LIV Golf, according to Barstool Sports reporter Dan Rapaport.
When pressed by Rapaport for an answer to the topic of player returns, Monahan replied:
Rapaport considers Monahan is just being careful with his choice of words at this very moment in time.
In Rapaport's latest 'Monday Rap' column, he writes:
Brooks Koepka, who joined LIV Golf from the PGA Tour last season, was recently said to recently be having "buyer's remorse" according to golf biographer Alan Shipnuck, as a result of his return to full fitness.
But Koepka, who signed for LIV Golf in a deal worth $100m, has denied such claims.
When you look into the figures behind breaking a LIV contract, you sort of begin to understand why Koepka won't be giving any consideration to a return to the PGA Tour before 2025.
If Koepka, for example, chose to leave LIV before his contract ends (and of course he was allowed back onto the PGA Tour), then the four-time major champion would potentially be looking at handing back $400m (x4 the value of his signing bonus).
All of the major LIV Golf players are said to be on three-year contracts taking them through to 2025.
More resignations are said to be on the way this month, according to The Telegraph.
Fines could reach £500,000, too.
