Tyrrell Hatton has finally reached an agreement with LIV Golf and will join Jon Rahm‘s team this very week. According to The Telegraph, the Saudi league will pay the English golfer close to 60 million euros for his signing. However, it does not clarify the duration of the contract, that is, whether these 60 ‘kilos’ will be for one year, two, three, or however many.

Hatton’s signing is expected to be officially announced this Wednesday in Mexico and he will participate in the inaugural tournament of the third season of LIV Golf which will start on Friday in Mayakoba. Obviously, the English player will have to withdraw from the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro Am, a designated PGA Tour tournament that is taking place this same week and in which he is currently registered. In this regard, it should be remembered that Adrian Meronk withdrew from the Farmers Insurance Open last week just a few hours before the start of the tournament, as he had also signed with LIV Golf to play on Martin Kaymer‘s team.

After this move, as happened with Rahm, Hatton will be expelled from the PGA Tour, while his intention is to keep the DP World Tour card to try to play the Ryder Cup in 2025. At the moment, he is ranked 16th in the world ranking, so he has the four Majors guaranteed this year. However, if an agreement is not reached between the Saudis and the PGA Tour, his participation in the 2025 Masters would already be quite in doubt, unless his performance in this year’s Majors is so good that it allows him to stay in the top 50 of the world ranking.

Hatton joins Jon Rahm’s team, confirming the news advanced by Ten Golf almost two months ago, when the signing of the golfer from Barrika was known. Tyrrell was the first name that the Spaniard put on the table. The negotiation has been very complicated and LIV has had to significantly increase its initial proposal to finally convince the player.
