Jon Rahm insists he has “no regrets” about moving to LIV Golf, but admitted he hopes a “way back” can be found that would allow him and others to make a return to the PGA Tour.
Rahm finished third on his LIV debut in Mexico last week, and his Legion XIII team did enough to win the team event.
He will be in action again at LIV’s second event in Las Vegas this weekend. The PGA Tour meanwhile will be in Phoenix, Arizona, the TPC Scottsdale course located literally minutes from Rahm’s home.
Speaking to the BBC, the 29-year-old Spaniard said he hopes to one day soon be able to play in those events.
“It was a lot harder to be at home not competing and know that those events were going on … those weeks were hard,” he said.
“I’ve explained so many times how important Torrey is for me.
“And driving by Phoenix as often as I had to and knowing that I wasn’t going to play there, it’s definitely emotional. That’s one of the things that I’m going to miss.”
The two tours blindsided golf when they announced plans to merge last June, but negotiations stalled and a new years deadline well expired.
