Report: Cameron Young to leave PGA Tour for LIV Golf Series

·1 min read

Is it time to add another Cameron to the LIV Golf Series roster?

A day after reports surfaced that Cam Smith, the 2022 Champion Golfer of the Year, has signed with the Saudi-backed, Greg Norman-led circuit, Cameron Young could now join the breakaway league as well, according to The Times UK.

Smith had “no comment” on the report at his Tuesday press conference ahead of this week’s FedEx St. Jude Championship, the first leg of the FedEx Cup Playoffs. The Aussie trails only Scottie Scheffler in the FEC standings.

Young is the favorite to bring home the 2022 PGA Tour Rookie of the Year award after collecting seven top-three finishes in 22 events, including a runner-up to Smith at the 150th Open Championship (his fourth of five runner-ups this season).

The 25-year-old won twice during his Korn Ferry Tour career but has yet to break through on the PGA Tour. He’s ranked 17th in the Official World Golf Ranking.

Saudi Arabia has been accused of wide-ranging human rights abuses, including politically motivated killings, torture, forced disappearances and inhumane treatment of prisoners. And members of the royal family and Saudi government were accused of involvement in the murder of Jamal Khashoggi, a Saudi journalist and Washington Post columnist.
