Correspondent Hoon Kwon = Mito Ferreira (Chile), 44th in the men’s golf world ranking, will join LIV Golf, sponsored by Saudi Arabia.
The British Telegraph reported on the 12th (Korean time) that Pereira decided to leave the US Professional Golf (PGA) Tour and play for LIV Golf starting this year.
Pereira will compete from the inaugural event of the LIV Invitational 2023, which will be held in Mexico from February 25th.
Pereira, who won 3 victories on the Korn Ferry Tour and 2 victories on the PGA Latin America, did not win the PGA Tour, but after competing to win last year’s PGA Championship, Ferreira drew attention by finishing third.
He also competed in the Presidents Cup last year.
Pereira, who is close to Joaquin Niemann 안전놀이터, who moved to LIV Golf last year, was predicted to join LIV Golf early on.
However, ahead of the opening match of the 2023 season, which will be held next month, the recruitment of star players that LIV Golf promised is quiet.
Until December of last year, LIV Golf announced the recruitment of special players comparable to Dustin Johnson, Bryson Dishambeau (USA) and Cameron Smith (Australia).
World No. 4 Patrick Cantley (USA) and Hideki Matsuyama (Japan), who LIV Golf worked hard for, are not budging, and last year’s rookie Cameron Young (USA), who was once ‘swayed’, announced that he would remain on the PGA Tour. .
