How much did LIV offer Rory McIlroy?

Rory McIlroy, a prominent figure in the world of golf, has recently been at the center of speculation regarding a potential offer from LIV Golf, a Saudi-funded breakaway league.

Reports suggested that McIlroy was on the verge of a shock move to LIV Golf in a deal worth $850 million (£680 million) but McIlroy has vehemently dismissed these claims, asserting his commitment to the PGA Tour and expressing his disinterest in joining LIV Golf.

The Rumored Offer

Contrary to the reports, McIlroy stated that he has never been offered a number from LIV Golf and has never contemplated moving to the breakaway league.

He emphasized that his future lies on the PGA Tour, and he has been consistent in his stance over the past two years, expressing his reservations about the Saudi-funded venture.

Despite acknowledging that players have the autonomy to make decisions that are best for themselves, McIlroy reiterated that his allegiance remains with the PGA Tour, and he has never engaged in any conversations regarding a potential move to LIV Golf.

McIlroy's Stance

McIlroy, who has been vocal in his criticism of LIV Golf, has expressed his desire to see the PGA Tour and LIV Golf find a way to allow their players to compete against each other more frequently.

His recent comments during an interview with Golf Channel's Todd Lewis at the RBC Heritage tournament in Hilton Head Island, S.C., reaffirmed his unwavering commitment to the PGA Tour.

Also, he has softened his stance towards LIV Golf following the framework agreement between the PGA Tour and Saudi Arabia’s Public Investment Fund, calling for a reunification of the professional game.

Response to the Rumors

When asked about how his name became linked to LIV Golf, McIlroy highlighted the prevalence of rumors in the past two years and emphasized the need for players to keep an open mind. While acknowledging that some players may have engaged with LIV Golf and received offers, McIlroy reiterated that it has never been a conversation for him.

He expressed his disappointment at having to deal with such rumors, attributing it to the current state of the game. However, he unequivocally declared that he will continue to play on the PGA Tour for the rest of his career, firmly shutting the door on the speculations surrounding his potential move to LIV Golf.

 

On the whole, Rory McIlroy's response to the rumored offer from LIV Golf has shed light on his unwavering commitment to the PGA Tour and his disinterest in joining the Saudi-funded breakaway league.

His firm stance against the speculation and his vocal support for the PGA Tour underscore his dedication to the professional game.

Despite the persistent rumors, McIlroy's unequivocal statements have clarified his position, emphasizing that his future lies within the realms of the PGA Tour, and he remains resolute in his decision to continue his career within this esteemed golfing institution.
