On July 29, the Saudi Arabia-backed LIV Golf Series announced two-time Masters champion Bubba Watson as their latest addition.
However, Watson has been recovering from a torn meniscus and has missed the majority of 2022. He won’t tee it up this year and wants “to be 100%” before making his debut in 2023.
Now, less than two weeks later, Watson has announced on social media that he has resigned from the PGA Tour.
Watson’s last win on Tour came at the 2018 Travelers Championship, an event he’s won three times, and he’s fallen all the way to No. 90 in the Official World Golf Ranking.
On Wednesday afternoon, two-time Masters winner Bubba Watson made the announcement on Twitter that he resigned his status from the PGA Tour and will join LIV Golf as well.
“I have resigned from @PGATour. Was told I will be removed from rankings after Sunday. Not sure how that plays out. Up to the Tour,” he said.
