Jon Rahm's heart is with the PGA Tour

Rory McIlroy, Justin Thomas, Brooks Koepka, Phil Mickelson and others have weighed in on the existence of the LIV Golf Series leading up to the 2022 U.S. Open

but no golfer has had quite the defense of the PGA Tour as Rahm had on Tuesday.

While some have offered takedowns of the LIV Golf Series and the PGA Tour defectors, including PGA Tour commissioner Jay Monahan, Rahm, the 2021 U.S. Open winner

Instead explained why he's sticking with the PGA Tour and why it matters so much to him:

This Jon Rahm answer is absolutely the best PGA Tour defense I’ve seen

Many high-profile golfers have made the jump to the Saudi-backed golf tour for big money, much to the chagrin of Monahan and some of the PGA Tour's best.

Some have criticized the upstart league as the Saudi government's way of rehabbing its image after years of alleged human rights violations.


Those players who have made their way to LIV Golf can still participate in major events, which are run by golf governing bodies, not the PGA Tour
