Jordan Spieth emphatically rejects LIV Golf rumours

Jordan Spieth

Last month it was Collin Morikawa.

Now, it’s Jordan Spieth who has been forced to issue a statement denying rumours that he is on the brink of committing to LIV Golf.

The three-time major champion, participating in this week’s Genesis Scottish Open, has found his name amongst social media speculation about who could be next to jump ship for the Saudi-funded start-up.

• Fitz and Schauffele make Scottish Open move

• Jordan Smith wins TWO cars with hole-in-one

Several outlets reported on those rumours, adding fuel to the fire.

However, the 28-year-old appeared to put the matter to bed on Friday evening with an unequivocal rebuttal.

“Because of false reporting today, I feel the need to comment,” he wrote.

“Let me be clear, any reports that I am contemplating competing anywhere other than the PGA Tour are categorically untrue.

“I am NOT in discussions with LIV. I have been quoted on the record for months that I fully support the PGA Tour and have never considered any alternatives.

• We followed Ian Poulter on DP World Tour return

“My goal has not changed since I began playing golf – to win PGA Tour events and major championships and to compete against the best players in the world.

“Those who truly know me, know what is most important to me.”

The former world No.1 is currently tied-20th heading into the weekend of the Scottish Open.
