Jupiter’s Brooks Koepka is joining LIV Golf

According to ESPN Brooks Koepka is leaving the PGA Tour and joining LIV Golf.

He is of 32 years and four-time major champion. He is the latest professional golfer to leave the PGA Tour to compete in the Saudi-backed Invitational.

In few days, LIV Golf will  announce the addition of Koepka.

This No. 19-ranked golfer is expected to join LIV Golf at inaugural  event of the tournament in Oregon by the end of the month.

The Telegraph of London  gave the first news about Koepka's departure to LIV Golf.

With his participation in the LIV golf event, now the event will have eight of the world's top 50 players, including several from Palm Beach County.

Jay Monahan, the PGA Tour Commissioner, has already suspended 17 golfers, including Phil Mickelson and Dustin Johnson. Johnson shifted to Jupiter from Palm Beach Gardens last year.

Koepka, who participated in last week's US Open, praised reporters for "throwing this black cloud" over the PGA Tour event by bringing up LIV Golf frequently.

After graduating from Cardinal Newman High School, Koepka chose to play golf at Florida State University.

His professional career began in 2012 and eventually became the world's No. 1-ranked golfer in 2018.

He won back-to-back US Open Championship in 2017 and 2018, and consecutive PGA Championships in 2018 and 2019 - the same year he tied for runner-up at the Masters.
