Text me back bro: Tiger Woods leaves Jon Rahm hanging over LIV Golf move

Jon Rahm revealed that Tiger Woods is yet to respond to him about his groundbreaking move to LIV Golf.

The Spanish superstar is arguably the biggest fish netted by LIV Golf boss Greg Norman, signing with the breakaway league in December for a reported $500 million.

The slow drain of players away from the established PGA and DP World Tour's and a potential deal with Saudi Arabia's Public Investment Fund has forced initial naysayers to do an about-turn on their opinion of LIV Golf.

Rory McIlroy - who was vehemently against LIV Golf at the outset - changed his tune after several of his mates joined the league. 

In an interview with ESPN, Rahm revealed he had texted Woods, but he hasn't heard back yet...

"I mean, Tiger, I texted him and the people that try to reach out, you know, the process, when I signed and I just let him know, 'Hey, you know, this is a personal decision. I have nothing against anybody'," said the world number three.

"Rory has been supportive publicly of my decision, and he was privately as well."

For Rahm, he's just chuffed he gets to play less golf for more money and spend time with his family.

"This is a new change... a big change," he continued.

"I don't want to skip through this point: A big change how golfers get compensated. I'd be lying if I said it wasn't a big part of it. In a nutshell, I'm getting more to play the same sport and have more time. I don't know about most people, but that sounds great to me."
