Another week, another set of LIV Golf defections – though there was one notable omission.
Hideki Matsuyama is staying put on the PGA Tour.
Though many reports had pegged the Japanese star and 2021 Masters champ as one of the handful of players expected to bolt to LIV Golf after the Tour’s season concluded on Sunday, a source previously told The Post that the 30-year-old eight-time Tour winner would not be making the move.
The reason, the source said, was that Matsuyama was torn between his legacy — he was the first player from Japan to win a men’s major championship — and ditching his career for what amounts to nothing more than a cash grab.
According to multiple sources, Matsuyama would have landed a nine-figure deal had he gone to LIV.
Then again, it’s likely that he has already has cashed in in more ways than one.
