Jon Rahm may no longer be a PGA golfer by Wednesday evening as LIV Golf is poised to offer him a $600 million deal, the Saudi golf promotion’s biggest deal to date.

The news of Rama’s move from the PGA to LIV comes amid an uneasy truce between the golf leagues, Rama was the first to report the move Telegraph.

The former Ryder Cup player told The Telegraph: “I think it will happen and that Jason Day and Adrian Meronk (will join him).”

Another Ryder Cup alum told the publication: “To be honest, I don’t know anything and if I were you, I’d take it all as rumors.”

Rahm has been a prominent member of the PGA Tour since 2016, while Day has been on the PGA since 2006. Meronk has been a professional golfer since 2016.

Masters champion Jon Rahm could join LIV Golf this week in a record $600 million deal.

Rahm’s taking of Saudi league money will have consequences that will change golf.

Any cordiality between LIV and PGA would seem to disappear if a player of Ram’s caliber were to jump ship.

Rahm himself, being one of the best golfers in the world, would change the day-to-day nature of both tours with his eventual switch. PGA Tours would be easier to win if there was a power hitter in the opposing camp. LIV events will be more competitive.

Rahm’s contract is worth three times the next highest amount for a LIV golfer: Phil Mickelson would take home a $200 million deal and sign with LIV Golf last June.

A few weeks ago, Mickelson lost his temper after golfer Alan Shipnuck said the golfer was telling people Jon Rahm was heading to LIV Golf.

Last month, Shipnuck wrote on social media that the left-hander was privately telling people that Masters champion Rahm’s move to LIV Golf was a “done deal.”

But Mickelson, 53, hit back publicly.

“That’s not true and I don’t know anything,” Mickelson responded. “I don’t want to know anything and I didn’t say anything.” Alan is the worst liar and pathetic person.”

Rahm and Mickelson share an agent, Steve Loy, and Shipnuck said the left-hander is a “ruthless salesman and bull artist, so take that for granted,” before Mickelson responded to the report himself.

Shipnuck responded to Mickelson’s refusal a few hours later.

“I guess Phil tweeted me?” I don’t know because he blocked me in a classic tough guy move,” Shipnuck X wrote. “But we all know that what he says publicly and privately is *very* different.”

While rumors of Rahm’s move to LIV Golf have been circulating for some time, Mail Sport reported that sources close to the 29-year-old strongly denied Rahm’s move from the PGA Tour last month.

However, prominent LIV players are privately hoping the Spaniard could be swayed by the lucrative mega-million dollar offer, which has previously been used to successfully lure some of golf’s biggest names away from the PGA Tour.
