Two-time major champion Dustin Johnson has resigned his membership of the PGA Tour in order to play in the Saudi-funded LIV Golf Invitational Series.
The former world number one has signed up to play all eight events of the fledgling $255m (£200m) series, which starts on Thursday at Centurion Club.
Johnson, 37, joined the PGA Tour in 2007 and has won $74m in his career.
“I don’t want to play for the rest of my life, this gives me an opportunity to do what I want to do,” he said.
