LIV Golf will announce seven new players, including Open champion Cameron Smith,
immediately after the FedEx Cup play-offs conclude next Sunday in another significant coup for the Saudi-funded series.
Telegraph Sport exclusively revealed earlier this month that Smith has agreed a deal worth more than $100 million to play
in Greg Norman’s breakaway league and the St Andrews hero’s sensational switch will be made official on August 29, the day following the PGA Tour’s season-ender.
With six other players joining the Australian in LIV’s biggest unveiling of recruits since the opening event in June,
this purposefully-timed exodus will cause huge concern at Sawgrass HQ as the trickle of rebels escalates into a flood.
It is understood the septet will all appear in LIV Boston, the fourth $25 million tournament in the eight-strong series, in two weeks’ time.
The Tour’s nightmare would become yet more gory still if Smith, the world No 2, lands the $18 million FedEx title in Atlanta
