He is expected to earn over €500 million

Masters champion Jon Rahm has joined the Saudi Arabian backed LIV golf tour.

Rahm is reported to have banked over 500 million euro for signing with LIV, who have failed to gain audience traction for their 54 hole competition and team format.

Earlier this year, the PGA Tour, DP World Tour and Saudi Public Investment Fund announced a 'framework agreement' for the future of the game, but that framework has yet to be realised.

Rory McIlroy expects Rahm to be a part of the European Ryder Cup team in 2025 and doesn't have any issue with Rahm personally following the Spaniard's decision.
