Tyrrell Hatton is latest to leave PGA Tour for LIV Golf

Tyrrell Hatton is latest to leave PGA Tour for LIV Golf

Tyrrell Hatton is listed among the 80 golfers in the field this week at the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am, the second signature event on the PGA Tour’s 2024 schedule. He was one of 11 to be playing the event for the first time.

But there’s some doubt that Hatton will join the fun on the Monterey Peninsula. According to a report by James Corrigan in the Telegraph, Hatton has left the PGA Tour and made the jump to LIV Golf, signing for $63 million. He reportedly will make his LIV debut this week as a member of Jon Rahm’s team in the season opener in Mexico. The event in Mayakoba starts Friday.

Hatton, who just five days ago committed to the WM Phoenix Open, would then be with LIV in Las Vegas over Super Bowl weekend instead of returning to TPC Scottsdale that same weekend, according to the report.

The Rahm-Hatton duo produced two points at the 2023 Ryder Cup, first defeating Scottie Scheffler and Sam Burns 4 and 3 in Friday morning foursomes, then taking down Patrick Cantlay and Xander Schauffele in Saturday morning foursomes 2 and 1.

At No. 16 in the latest Official World Golf Ranking, Hatton would be the second-highest-ranked LIV golfer. Rahm is No. 3.

Hatton has earned close to $22 million in on-course earnings on the PGA Tour. He turned pro in 2011.
