LIV Golf’s spending spree might be just getting started. Greg Norman’s breakaway tour has already signed nine-figure deals with Phil Mickelson, Dustin Johnson and Bryson DeChambeau – totaling $400-500 million, and now they have a fourth $100 million-plus superstar in their sights.
LIV Golf is making a “major push” to sign four-time major winner Brooks Koepka, according to a source who travels in the LIV Golf orbit.
The source told Pro Golf Weekly, “LIV feels confident but both parties are waiting until after the U.S. Open to avoid a media firestorm.”
Given his age (just turned 32), resume (four majors) and superstar status, Koepka would be the biggest blow to the PGA Tour and Jay Monahan.
As part of the deal, Koepka would be expected to play in each of the $25 million LIV Golf events. He would also appear in marketing campaigns for the upstart tour, including reigniting Koepka’s made-for-TV rivalry with DeChambeau, which they believe is “pure gold.”
Koepka would also be reunited with his former “bash brother,” DJ, and real brother Chase Koepka.
With Koepka on board, LIV Golf would have the champions of four (2016-18, 2020) of the last six U.S. Opens, three (2018-19, 2021) of the last five PGAs, and three (2017-18, 2020) of the last six Masters. It would also almost guarantee that the Official World Golf Rankings award points to the upstart tour.
