June 22 update: Koepka has officially withdrawn from the Travelers Championship. This is likely because he joined LIV Tour, as the breakaway league continues to get pushback from the PGA TOUR.

Four-time major winner Brooks Koepka is about to join the LIV Golf Tour according to the UK’s The Telegraph this morning.

Koepka is expected to join the tour at Pumpkin Ridge outside Portland, Oregon for their stop from June 30 to July 2. The move changes the game for the LIV Tour, adding one of the highest-profile names in golf and one that until now had given no indication they weren’t long for the PGA TOUR.

Koepka’s brother Chase, a former Korn Ferry Tour and Asian Tour player that played collegiately at South Florida, was part of the first LIV Golf event in London two weeks ago. He finished +10 for a T33 in a 48-player field that was worth about $140,000, which was almost half his career earnings to that point.

Greg Norman breakaway league continues to lure some of the better players in the world. Koepka will join Bryson DeChambeau, Dustin Johnson, Phil Mickelson and more. The guaranteed money given to these players has become a bit of an open secret in golf, and it’s know to be at least nine figures for the top stars.
