The highest-profile stars who have signed with LIV Golf: Leaked photo confirms Aussie’s backflip

Cameron Smith, John Rahm, and now Lucas Herbert have all joined LIV Golf.

The breakaway league split the game in two and in 2022 dropped a bombshell on the PGA Tour by nabbing Aussie superstar Smith just weeks after he won the Open Championship.

The Saudi-backed tour struck another huge blow by signing Rahm for $908m in late 2023, and more are sure to come.

Here, we run through the biggest names to ditch the PGA and European tours to sign with LIV.

Lucas Herbert

The Aussie has been snapped posing with Cameron Smith in the all-Australian Ripper GC team apparel ahead of the 2024 season kicking off, all but confirming rumours of his defection.

Herbert – a one-time winner on the PGA Tour who has found some success on the European circuit – had previously denied any interest in LIV Golf, telling Wide World of Sports last April he “still has no idea who actually won” the Adelaide event days after it happened.

Herbert had hoped to climb the world rankings and break into the top 50, but is set to slide at a rapid rate now given LIV events don’t carry any rankings points. It will make qualifying for the Olympics almost impossible.
