Tiger Woods Syndication: The Augusta Chronicle

Like most elite golfers, Tiger Woods and Jon Rahm once had a pretty close relationship during their time together on the PGA Tour. But with Rahm leaving for the PGA Tour to join the Saudi-backed LIV Golf circuit, it sounds like that relationship no longer exists.

This week, Jon Rahm spoke to Marty Smith on ESPN about how his move from the PGA Tour to LIV Golf has impacted his relationships with golfers who have remained loyal to the PGA Tour. Rahm said that he has remained in contact with Rory McIlroy, who he said has publicly and privately supported his decision, but he has not spoken to Tiger Woods since the move.

“Tiger? No, not really,” Rahm said. “I mean, Tiger, I texted him and the people that try to reach out, you know, the process, when I signed and I just let him know, ‘Hey, you know, this is a personal decision.’”

Obviously, it’s pretty horrible news that their relationship seems to have ended with Rahm moving to LIV Golf, and people had a lot to say about it on social media as a result.


We’ll have to see whether or not the two golf superstars can ever make amends.
