The United Kingdom paper reports that Brooks Koepka is joining the disputable Saudi-upheld visit, joining any semblance of Phil Mickelson, Dustin Johnson, Bryson DeChambeau and different stars the game who have previously abandoned.

Koepka, who's brought home four significant titles, outstandingly scoured the PGA Tour from his virtual entertainment stages. He's normal, as per the report, to play in the following LIV Golf occasion, one week from now in Portland.

The 32-year-old Koepka is a major get for the LIV Tour thinking about that, similar to his opponent DeChambeau and Johnson, he's in the prime of his profession — not at all like a portion of different players who've joined and are 40 years of age or more seasoned.

Interestingly, Koepka, a two-time U.S. Open winner, was vocal at last week’s U.S. Open in criticizing those in the media who were asking questions about LIV, saying it was casting a “black cloud’’ over the major.  

“I don’t understand, I’m trying to focus on the U.S. Open, man,’’ 

Koepka, who finished 12-over and tied for 55th, said indignantly. “I legitimately don’t get it. I’m tired of the conversations. I’m tired of all this stuff. 

“I’m here at the US Open, I’m ready to play the U.S. Open, and I think it kind of sucks, too, you are all throwing this black cloud over the U.S. Open. It’s one of my favorite events. I don’t know why you guys keep doing that. The more legs you give it, the more you keep talking about it.’’  

Well, Koepka has apparently given LIV Golf more legs.

Mickelson has reportedly been paid $200 million by LIV, Johnson a reported $125 million and DeChambeau $100 million. It’s not known what Koepka’s number is. But he’s earned $37.9 million in career prize money to date on the PGA Tour, and the guaranteed money from LIV will likely be at least double, and possibly triple. that figure. 

PGA Tour commissioner Jay Monahan was expected to have a mandatory player meeting on Tuesday at the Travelers Championship to discuss, among other things, a condensed fall schedule with much larger purses — a clear attempted reaction to LIV Golf.  ‘

Monahan has suspended all 17 PGA Tour member players who played in the first LIV event outside of London and is expected to do the same for those, like DeChambeau, Patrick Reed and Koepka when and if they tee it up next week in Portland.

Surely, there will be many questions asked among the players in that meeting with Monahan Tuesday.
