The Rahm team is Jon Rahm, Tyrrell Hatton, Caleb Surratt, Kieran Vincent. Combined they have 25+ pro tournament wins, 6 Ryder Cup appearances, and three different continents. Plus, Surratt was among the world’s top amateurs prior to signing with LIV Golf.
“We’ve come a long way in a short period of time and are extremely proud of the team and brand we are building,” said Rahm. “As we were developing the team’s brand it became clear that I wanted to fight alongside a group of guys who aligned perfectly with what the team stands for. Tyrrell is a fierce competitor, proven champion, and of course my Ryder Cup teammate. Caleb is one of the brightest next gen stars of the game. And Kieran is a steady, talented ball striker who earned his promotion to LIV and is elevating his game every day.”
The signing of Rahm to LIV Golf shook up the golf world, yet again. Rahm and previous signees Bryson DeChambeau, Dustin Johnson, Brooks Koepka, Vegas’ Kevin Na, Cameron Smith and other elite golf stars will also be in the field. The plan of LIV Golf CEO Greg Norman gains new traction daily.
“The introduction of Legion XIII is a testament to LIV Golf’s continued growth as our league builds for the long-term,” said LIV Golf Commissioner and CEO Greg Norman. “Jon Rahm is one of the top competitors in the world and his team will make an immediate impact on the league both on and off the golf course. I’m thrilled to welcome his new teammates, Ryder Cup star Tyrrell Hatton and young gun Caleb Surratt, along with LIV Golf Promotions standout Kieran Vincent, who will undoubtedly be great additions to the league. This is another exciting moment in the natural evolution of LIV Golf and the future for the sport.”
