ustin Johnson and Bryson DeChambeau have both committed their futures to the PGA Tour, ending rumours of their potential involvement in the planned Saudi-backed Super Golf League.

Talk of the breakaway league has increased in recent weeks, with the PGA Tour continuing to insist that any players involved will be issued with lifetime bans which would impact their ability to compete in the majors.

Rory McIlroy, Jon Rahm and Collin Morikawa were among the top players in the world this week once again confirming they had no interest in making the jump, with McIlroy particularly critical of the ‘not so Super League’.

Johnson was seemingly the highest-ranked player most likely to commit to the SGL, having been a regular at the Saudi International tournament in recent years and he has remained coy on the rumours when asked in recent weeks.

However, in a statement released through the PGA Tour, Johnson has now addressed the topic and confirmed that he will not be joining the breakaway league.

The statement said: “Over the past several months, there has been a great deal of speculation about an alternative tour, much of which seems to have included me and my future in professional golf.

“I feel it is now time to put such speculation to rest. I am fully-committed to the PGA Tour. I am grateful for the opportunity to play on the best tour in the world and for all it has provided me and my family.

“While there will always be areas where our Tour can improve and evolve, I am thankful for our leadership and the many sponsors who make the PGA Tour golf’s premier tour.”

That was a significant blow for the SGL and it got even worse a few hours later.

DeChambeau was less glowing in his support of the PGA Tour, but did confirm he was not currently planning on making a switch.

“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 posted in a statement on Twitter.
