Schauffele drops huge hint over PGA Tour future amid LIV Golf talks
Xander Schauffele appears to have put any chance of him joining LIV Golf to bed, after the Olympic
champion committed to playing in the PGA Tour's 2024 AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am next month.
Schauffele's name is one that has been linked to the breakaway circuit on the back of its inception last
summer. A number of the PGA Tour's biggest names have opted to make the Saudi switch since last
June, including Phil Mickelson, Dustin Johnson, Brooks Koepka and Bryson DeChambeau.
When it comes to Schauffele though, it appears the American star is opting to stay with the PGA Tour for
now, with the 30-year-old kicking off his 2024 campaign at one of the circuit's most historic events.
The seven-time PGA Tour winner was one of a number of stars to receive an offer from the LIV setup,
but opted to turn it down. And despite their being a lucrative amount of money on the table for the
American, he has no regrets over turning
Schauffele told Today's Golfer last month: "I haven’t really thought a whole lot about it [LIV Golf offer],"
he added. "I don’t sit here and think, oh gosh, I should have pursued that more or anything of that
nature. I’m pretty content with where I’m at and what I’ve done.”
Despite pledging his allegiance to the PGA Tour, Schauffele is one of a number of players who have
shared their discontent with the circuit's leadership, following their decision to join forces with the
Public Investment Fund of Saudi Arabia (PIF). The proposed deal will see the Tour work in unison with
their LIV rivals, after being involved in a year-long feud with the breakaway league.
