Sources: Masters champ Jon Rahm leaving PGA Tour for LIV Golf

In a deal that could have a far-reaching impact on the future landscape of men's professional golf and inject even more uncertainty in an already-fractured sport, Masters champion Jon Rahm has agreed to leave the PGA Tour for the Saudi Arabian-financed LIV Golf League, sources confirmed to ESPN on Thursday.

LIV Golf is expected to announce Rahm's addition Thursday, barring a last-minute change of heart from the former world No. 1 player, the sources said.

The deal is believed to be longer than three years and is reportedly worth more than $300 million and will include an ownership stake for Rahm in a new LIV Golf League team, according to sources.
