Despite the uncertainty surrounding the future of LIV Golf, former world number one Dustin Johnson has claimed the controversial circuit will continue.

Speaking to Sky Sports’ Jamie Weir ahead of this week’s US Open, the captain of 4Aces GC confirmed Greg Norman’s breakaway tour is going nowhere.

The two-time major winner said: “Yeah, LIV will go into 2024. They are doing the schedule now, so as far as I know, that’s the plan, but I can’t really answer any further than that.

“I’ve talked to the guys, and 2024 will have a full schedule, just like we did this year.”

Johnson, who first tasted major success at the 2016 US Open, also claimed that information was confirmed to him by a monumental source in the golf divide.

When asked if that was the word from H.E. Yasir Al-Rumayyan, Johnson simply replied: “Yes.”

Al-Rumayyan is the Governor of the Saudi Arabian Public Investment Fund (PIF) and will become the chairman of the new commercial entity being formed between former bitter rivals.

The 53-year-old will expand his behemoth sporting portfolio by heading the board of the newly formed empire combining the PGA Tour, DP World Tour, and LIV Golf.

It was announced on May 31 last year that Johnson would be part of the field for the inaugural event of the Invitational Series.

That marked the start of golf’s civil war as one day later, PGA Tour commissioner Jay Monahan told golfers they would have to choose between LIV Golf and his tour.

Johnson resigned a week later, though, becoming ineligible to compete at all on the PGA Tour, while missing out on the Presidents Cup that September.

The 38-year-old has still contested every major championship since making the switch, as well as winning two LIV Golf events, four regular-season team events, and the 2022 Team Championship.
