Tony Finau has cleared balls when asked about his joining LIV Golf. It was this very week, within the framework of the Grant Thornton Invitational, a festive tournament for pairs formed by golfers from the PGA Tour and the LPGA Tour. Finau is playing with Nelly Korda. In fact, he was asked about the matter in question on two occasions at the end of the first day, just a few hours after Ten Golf revealed that both he and Tyrrell Hatton had very advanced conversations to join Jon Rahm‘s new team.

Finau had two opportunities to respond and on both he left the door wide open. On one occasion he pointed out: “I have nothing to say right now. I haven’t heard anything”. Minutes later, he looked the other way again. He was directly asked if he had anything to say about his name being linked to Jon’s team: “No, not yet,” he said. “I’m not thinking about anything else right now than playing this tournament”.

White and in a bottle. All roads lead to the news being confirmed in the next few hours, as advanced by this medium, which places Finau on Rahm’s team. It should be remembered that the golfer from Salt Lake City and the Spaniard have an excellent relationship.

In addition, Finau’s agent, Chris Armstrong, told Sports Illustrated that everything was rumours and speculation. More wood. The easy thing, had it not been so, is that the information would have been denied, but the reality is that the negotiations are more than advanced. Only a completely unexpected final twist would prevent Finau’s landing in LIV Golf.

It should be remembered that in Ten Golf we pointed out the names of Finau and Hatton, with whom the conversations are more than advanced, in addition to Wyndham Clark, Nicolai Hojgaard and Brian Harman. Three other options that are on the table to complete the team of the golfer from Barrika. By the way, regarding his signing for LIV, Finau pointed out that: “he made the best decision for his family and for himself. I’m happy for him”.

Other players have denied their link to LIV Golf, appeared in information released by Anglo-Saxon media. These are the cases of Jason Day and Adrian Meronk. The Australian explained that “I know there are rumours about my departure,” he said. “They are totally false. I don’t know where these rumours start. I still find it hard to see LIV. I like some of the concepts they have, but they haven’t hit the nail on the head with the format or the real emotion of what they’re trying to achieve”. Meanwhile, the Pole responded to the rumours with a photo of himself on social media with the cards of the PGA Tour and the DP World Tour.
