Fans Are Not Happy With Jon Rahm’s “Hypocritical” Move to LIV Golf

Spread the love

If you haven’t heard yet, Jon Rahm announced that he is leaving the PGA Tour to join the Saudi-backed LIV Golf league.

Fans are not happy. Some are unhappy that he’s supporting “sports-washing.” The term is given to Saudi-backed leagues that are being used to cover up the crimes being committed in Saudi Arabia.

Some fans are calling him a hypocrite because just a year ago, he knocked on LIV Golf and said he would never make that move.

Other PGA players have also reacted to the news, most notably Rory McIlroy, who’s been one of the biggest pro-PGA Tour players since LIV was founded.

With how many negative comments there are about Jon Rahm, there are also a lot of people who understand the decision, given how much money it is. Also, when Rahm first made his comments, LIV had just started, and it was PGA vs LIV. Now, PGA has attempted to go into business with LIV behind their player’s backs, and so with that, people are siding with Rahm because of the hypocrisy of the PGA Tour.

One Arizona State fan couldn’t help but mention that Rahm’s contract might make one football coach really happy.
