The LIV continues to pull out all the stops, as with news of the 14-event, 48-man league being established next year, the league gains more notoriety with its purse, and the star power it has attracted.
It was reported that the event will have a pool that is worth up to $405 million.
As it pertains to who it has attracted, it has claimed another Masters’ winner.
Bubba Watson, the 2-time Masters’ winner, is the latest star to make the jump to LIV.
Watson’s entry makes it 9 of the last 19 Masters’ winners who have made the move to the new league, including Phil Mickleson and Dustin Johnson.
Another name tied to the league is Donald Trump, the former president of the United States. Attending a LIV-sponsored party in New York City last night, it was announced that he will participate in LIV’s Pro-Am in Bedminster.
The New Jersey event was stated by Trump as an “incredible investment” for Saudi Arabia, the polarizing country that is one of the chief funders of the new league.
Despite the controversy, money is talking and winning for golf’s next big thing.
