Report: Former world number one 'not joining' LIV Golf with Jon Rahm

Jason Day will be remaining a PGA Tour player for the 2023-2024 campaign, despite reports suggesting the former world number one will be joining LIV Golf.

Report: Former world number one 'not joining' LIV Golf with Jon Rahm

Other than Jon Rahm, former world number one Jason Day has been linked with a switch to LIV Golf. 

Rahm is said to have already agreed a £450m, six-year deal with LIV that will be announced imminently. 

According to Telegraph Sport, Day and European Ryder Cup snub Adrian Meronk are likely to be joining the Spaniard. 

One former Ryder Cup player told the paper: "I think this [Rahm] will happen, and that Jason Day and Adrian Meronk will join."

Approximately 12 months ago Day told reporters before the QBE Shootout of joining LIV: "I definitely would say no. 

"I wouldn't go as of now. Who knows, in a year's time, you might think differently."

Since he made those comments Day claimed his first PGA Tour in five years at the Byron Nelson. 

It was one of the most poignant moments of the 2022-2023 campaign given his back injuries and struggles with vertigo. 

Despite boasting an impressive roster of major champions and former Ryder Cup stars, LIV still hasn't been able to shake off the notion it is a destination for golfers with their best playing days behind them. 

Day is also not involved in Tiger Woods and Rory McIlroy's indoor golf league, TGL, which means he might be a reasonable target for LIV. 

Given LIV's successful tournament in Adelaide, his signature would be huge coup for the league. 

But according to Golf Digest's Evin Priest, there is 'nothing in' the rumours and Day will be a PGA Tour player in 2024. 

Meronk joining LIV also does seem somewhat of a stretch, given he recently claimed his PGA Tour card for the 2023-2024 season.
