RBC Dumps Dustin Johnson Following LIV Golf Announcement
RBC has announced that they are parting ways with Dustin Johnson.
The announcement comes after Johnson has signed on to play with the Saudi-backed LIV Golf tour that begins next week.
The first tournament actually comes in conflict with the RBC Canadian Open.
RBC released the following statement:
“RBC is a proud partner of the PGA Tour. Our partnership is anchored with two world-class golf tournaments – The RBC Heritage and the RBC Canadian Open. The PGA Tour has been clear about its intention in accordance with its Tournament Regulations should a golfer choose to play in a tournament outside the Tour, including the LIV Golf Invitational Series.
We were recently made aware that Dustin Johnson made the decision to play the LIV Golf Invitational Series opener. DJ has been a valued RBC Team member since 2018. While we are extremely disappointed in his decision, we wish him well.”
