The number of top flight golfers who plan to compete for the PGA Tour’s new rival continues to grow. Bryson DeChambeau and Patrick Reed will soon be announced as the latest players to join the LIV Golf tour, The Daily Telegraph reports.

DeChambeau and Reed have signed with LIV Golf for multiple years, according to Sports Illustrated. The PGA Tour stars are expected to make their LIV debuts at the tour’s first tournament in the United States. LIV comes to the U.S. for an event at Pumpkin Ridge in Oregon from June 30 through July 2.

Both DeChambeau and Reed have won major championships within the last few years. DeChambeau won the 2020 U.S. Open, and Reed took home the green jacket at the 2018 Masters.

DeChambeau is 28th in the latest world golf rankings. He’s set to become the third top-30 golfer to join the LIV Golf Tour. No. 15 Dustin Johnson resigned his membership from the PGA Tour, making the jump to LIV for a reported nine-figure deal. No. 21 Louis Oosthuizen is also set to compete in LIV’s inaugural event Thursday.

“While there has been a lot of speculation surrounding my support for another tour, I want to make it very clear that as long as the best players in the world are playing the PGA Tour, so will I,” DeChambeau said on Twitter in February. “As of now, I am focused on getting myself healthy and competing again soon.”

Reed isn’t far behind DeChambeau at No. 36 in the golf rankings. Reed tied for 35th place at this year’s Masters and 34th place at the PGA Championship.

Kevin Na, ranking No. 34 in the world, also reigned from the PGA in favor of LIV. Na finished in 14th and 23rd place, respectively, at the first two majors of 2022.

Phil Mickelson is believed to be making around $200 million to play for LIV.
