Jon Rahm has confirmed his 2023 European Ryder Cup teammate Tyrrell Hatton will join his LIV Golf side.
Rahm, 29, made the official announcement on 30 January, days before the Saudi-backed league kicks off their 2024 campaign in Mayakoba, Mexico.
The reigning Masters champion apparently convinced England's Hatton, currently the World No.16, to join his LIV team with a call at the 11th hour.
The Englishman, who has won multiple events on the DP World Tour and claimed the Arnold Palmer Invitational on the PGA Tour, is said to have agreed a contract with the breakaway tour worth an estimated £50m.
Rahm is said to have agreed a deal worth £450m when he joined LIV last December in a move which shook the world of men's professional golf and triggered alarm bells in the corridors of power.
The PGA Tour are still continuing their talks with LIV Golf's financiers - Saudi Arabia's Public Investment Fund - and the most recent update suggests the North American circuit is primed for a $3bn cash injection from Strategic Sports Group.
How that affects the Tour's talks with the PIF remains to be seen.
Rahm has also confirmed that the talented young American, Caleb Surratt, has joined his LIV team.
As expected, LIV Golf Promotions graduate Kieran Vincent, has also joined.
Vincent is the younger brother of Scott Vincent, who also plays in LIV events with Kevin Na's IronHeads.
Rahm is expected to give a news conference on 31 January.
