Who’s the first LIV golfer to come back to the PGA Tour?


Alan Shipnuck, who is as well connected on the PGA Tour/LIV Golf front as anyone, mentions in his latest mailbag (see below) that Brooks Koepka might be experiencing buyer's remorse about his move to LIV.

Whether Koepka has regrets or not (the only certainty is he will deny it), the reality is some of LIV players will miss life on the Tour, which sets up a conundrum for Jay Monohan. It would be a huge PR win to have players returning at some point, BUT how does the PGA Tour take them back without some sort of significant additional suspension?

After McIlroy, Rahm, Spieth et al turned down huge sums of money to remain loyal to the Tour during tenuous times, can Monohan really let Koepka or any other LIV player come waltzing back onto Tour $100 million richer without repercussions?
