This season on the PGA Tour has not started well for the 2023 Tour Championship winner. In his two outings this season, Hovland has failed to make a mark. The 26-year-old pulled out of the WM Phoenix Open, raising speculation that he might, after all, join the breakaway side. There were even rumors that he had already signed up for the Greg Norman-fronted league.

It was not the first time Hovland was linked with the breakaway side. It was also not the first time the 2023 Ryder Cup winner dispelled the rumors. Earlier in a podcast, he revealed that LIV Golf indeed reached out to him. But considering his future trajectory, he has passed on the opportunity.

Nevertheless, the PGA Tour Pro’s comments slamming the top brass for doing a “damn bad job” were read as his frustration and an early sign of an impending defection to LIV Golf. Hovland, for his part, has clearly said ‘no’ a second time when officials from his country’s golf association reached out to him for clarification.

It turns out Viktor Hovland is once again reiterating what he has said before. He is fully committed to playing on the Tour. The 2023 Tour Championship winner has the task cut out for him. His short game has once again faltered. In his third outing this season, Hovland will be looking for a better start.
