The 33-year-old golfer was one of the big names who joined the LIV Golf circuit by leaving the PGA Tour. When he joined, it was reported that he received a huge sum of $130 million. The five-time major champion has now admitted that money in fact played a part in his decision.

The Saudi-backed tour has been known for its spending. The league backed by the Public Investment Fund (PIF) of Saudi Arabia has been heavily criticized for the amount of money they have used.

In a recent episode of BS w/ Jake Paul Koepka admitted that his family was the reason behind this move. He claimed that he does not know what the future will hold.

There had been talks that he would be removed from his post if the merger goes through. At the team championship finale, the top boss boldly stated “I’m here to stay“. Only time will answer what will happen with Norman and his league in the upcoming days.
