In ordinary circumstances Jon Rahm would be defending his title at The Sentry.

But Rahm went to LIV and is currently suspended by the PGA Tour

That being said, the Spaniard is reportedly in Hawaii this week on vacation with his wife Kelley Cahill and has bumped into several Tour pros. 

That's according to the No Laying Up's Tron Carter, who said on their latest podcast: "Everyone's saying Rahm skipped Kapalua this year. 

"By all accounts he's actually there. He's staying at Kapalua this week and last week." 

He added: "I've not got a picture but I've got several eyewitness accounts." 

Co-host D.J. Piehowski offered: "If that's true that's, like, one of the more sociopathic examples of behaviour in our time." 

Of course a number of golf fans also saw the funny side to reports Rahm is in Hawaii. 

"His whole life is a vacation right now," one wrote on X. Another added: "Recruitment season is open." 

Another made a Jeffrey Epstein joke: "Rough time to be posting about island encounters." 

Rahm joined LIV Golf officially on 8 December 2023 after weeks of intense speculation. 

He is said to have signed a deal that is worth £450m, although that figure has not been substantiated. 

Phil Mickelson and Brooks Koepka are two LIV players who have confirmed their lucrative signing-on fees for joining the rival league. 

Rahm's decision to join LIV was a seismic moment but now figures from both sides are suggesting his defection will ultimately bring the game back together. 

Rory McIlroy recently hailed Rahm's switch as a 'smart business move' after making the astonishing admission he would consider being part of the breakaway tour should it turn into 'the IPL of golf'. 

Mickelson responded to McIlroy's latest comments by saying it was now time for everyone to put aside their grievances to navigate a path forwards in men's professional golf. 

"This quote and the many others made today by Rory probably weren't easy to say," he wrote. 

"Let's not use this as an opportunity to pile on. Rather, it's time for me and others to let go of our hostilities and work towards a positive future.

Greg Norman also echoed the sentiments express by Mickelson. 

As for Rahm, it has not been confirmed yet whether he will be having his own LIV team. 

The rival league have not announced any new recruits since Rahm joined.

The reigning Masters champion will make his LIV debut next month in Mexico.
