LIV Golf Boston will welcome seven new names to its roster, claims reliable source.
LIV Golf is set to welcome seven new players to its circuit at its next tournament in Boston, according to Handicap 54 on Twitter.
While it’s hard to go 24 hours without another fresh rumour doing the rounds on social media, the source in question has nailed just about nailed all the latest signings before they have happened so far this season on the LIV Golf Tour.
WE UPDATED: we handle that there will be 7 NEW names in Boston, for @LIVGolfInv .
While Handicap 54 does not mention specific PGA Tour names in its latest tweet, you can be certain one of them will be Open champion Cameron Smith.
Telegraph Sport recently confirmed Smith has agreed to join LIV Golf after the FedEx Cup Playoffs, but Handicap 54 already revealed such information the day the Australian etched his name on the Claret Jug.
See the tweet below from July 17:
@livgolfinv . CAMERON SMITH: ESTARÍA CERRADO
Prepárense que los bombazos vienen por todos lados, en un momento muy particular. Nuestras fuentes nos dicen que Cameron Smith ya tendría contrato con @livgolfinv : algo que veníamos manejando hace mucho tiempo. pic.twitter.com/jjIAJzaFWj
Smith, who was forced out of this week’s BMW Championship, then all-but confirmed the move during an interview with Sky Sports Golf last week.
His compatriot and good pal Marc Leishman is also expected to switch to LIV Golf, especially after Tour pro Cameron Percy spilled the beans.
As for the other new players teeing it up in LIV Golf Boston, your guess is as good as ours.
There are certainly plenty of names being thrown around on Twitter like confetti at the moment.
Hideki Matsuyama has been offered $400 million to move to LIV Golf, claim a number of sources.
There have also been murmurings about Cameron Young moving to LIV Golf, a player who is enjoying an incredible rookie season on the PGA Tour, highlighted by a runner-up finish behind Smith at The Open.
But his father, a PGA pro, has reportedly denied such talk of a move to LIV so we’ll have to wait and see on that one.
LIV Golf Boston will take place at The International from September 2 to 4 and it will be the fourth tournament of their inaugural season.
GolfMagic had a go at predicting the 48 players that could start the 2023 LIV Golf League, which will see a huge $405 million in total prize money for the season.
Dustin Johnson, Brooks Koepka, Bryson DeChambeau, Phil Mickelson, Patrick Reed and Sergio Garcia are just six of the star names confirmed to compete at LIV Golf Boston.
Reed caused controversy earlier this week when it came to light that he is suing Brandel Chamblee and Golf Channel for defamation and is seeking $750 million in damages.
But according to one lawyer, Reed’s lawsuit has “zero legal merit and will not succeed.”
In other LIV Golf news this week, a federal judge has set a tentative 2024 trial date for LIV Golf’s highly-anticipated antitrust lawsuit against the PGA Tour.
