CHARLOTTE NOW, N. C. —  Hideki Matsuyama admitted during Tuesday’s media availability at the Presidents Cup that he was acknowledged by upstart, Saudi-backed LIV Playing .  

Still, he said she will continue to play his are generally on the PGA Tour. From a Japanese-to-English translator, Matsuyama’s thinking was six words.  

“Simply this is I belong, ” appropriate said.  

LIV’s flirtation with last year’s Masters champion confirms a long-whispered zumbido, with some reports suggesting Matsuyama was offered well to nine figures to play from LIV. According to a source to the New York Post , Matsuyama turned down a new offer late last month, to the source saying the 30-year-old was torn between strengthening his legacy and receiving the best payday.

Matsuyama likely may possibly been announced among the six Trip golfers specialise in joined LIV after latter month’s Tour Championship — Open Championship winner Cameron Smith, Joaquin Niemann, Harold Varner III, Marc Leishman and Cameron Tringale. Reasonably, he is playing the Presidents Cup, played last week’s Fortinet Championship that is expected to defend his title next month at the Zozo Championship.  

On Tuesday, a journalist also asked Matsuyama if, perhaps he would be interested in playing a single PGA Tour-LIV Golf squad event, should one only for today come together.  

His answer again must have been short.  

“I can’t decide a product like that because there’s nothing specific about it, ” appropriate said through a translator.
