Jon Rahm: I’m risking my Ryder Cup future for £450m LIV deal

Dec 8, 2023

Jon Rahm has admitted that signing with LIV Golf in a record deal worth upwards of £450 million ($566.4m) is a “big risk” to his Ryder Cup future.

“The Ryder Cup was the biggest hurdle for me before joining,” the world No 3 said on Thursday night.

The announcement of Rahm’s signing sent a seismic shock throughout the professional game. Telegraph Sport revealed earlier this week that the reigning Masters champion was on the verge of joining the Saudi-funded league and he was unveiled in New York with a deal that is believed to be the biggest ever in sport.

The first £240 million ($302m) will be paid up front with the rest following as bonuses and as part of a team franchise that he will own. But the magnitude of the settlement could be even bigger for golf. “I had a really good offer in front of me and I’ve done it for my family,” Rahm said.
