‘I’m not leaving’: Tony Finau shuts down LIV Golf rumours

Tony Finau took to Instagram to offer a definitive response regarding his future on the PGA Tour…

 

Tony Finau appeared ready to follow Jon Rahm off the conveyor belt to LIV Golf.

It was widely reported the popular American was next to join the lucrative Saudi-backed league ahead of its third season.

But Finau put these rumours to bed and committed his future to the PGA Tour with a post on Instagram.

“As this year comes to an end I’m grateful to play the game that I love and to have the opportunity to compete at the highest level,” he wrote.

“I’m excited for 2024 and looking forward to playing my 10th season on the PGA Tour! And stoked to be defending in both Mexico and Houston!

“Thank you to my partners for your continued support. Thank you to the fans for all the love for our whole Finau fam.

“See y’all in Maui,” he added before a final message reading: “#imnotleaving.”

Finau and Rahm are close friends and are both members of The Silverleaf Club in Scottsdale, Arizona.

Finau was coy over his future when asked about a possible transfer to LIV Golf at the 2023 Grant Thornton Invitational.

“I have nothing to say right now. I haven’t heard anything,” he said.

This response sucked in speculation but the 34-year-old is set for a 10th consecutive spin around the PGA Tour circuit in 2024.

Finau won twice in the 2022/2023 season at the Cadence Bank Houston Open and the Mexico Open at Vidanta.

He went on to finish tied for 20th at the Tour Championship but was unfortunately not chosen for the US Ryder Cup team in what would’ve been his third consecutive appearance.

All in all, the man from Salt Lake City has won over $37 million since his first-ever PGA Tour start in 2007, including six victories.
