The World No.4 has been linked with signing with the Saudi-backed Series, but when asked about them ahead of the Rocket Mortgage Classic, he admitted that while money is a big motivation, rumours that he will join LIV straight after the FedEx Cup are not true.
“I don't take too much stock in outside noise,” said the seven-time PGA Tour winner. “I don't have any plans at the moment to leave after the FedExCup.”
Cantlay banked $15million for winning the FedEx Cup last year, and the 30-year-old admitted that the money is an influence in golf, just as it is with any job.
He said: “I think anytime anyone's playing their profession, money's a big contributing motivator.”
After a season with only one win but nine top-10 finishes, Cantlay admitted he is making small changes to his game to try and rediscover the golden touch, but his experience of last year means he knows things can change very quickly.
He said: “Last year I was having a very average season until Memorial, or very poor season for me, and I won Memorial and then won BMW and the TOUR Championship and all of a sudden it was the best year I've ever had and I won Player of the Year, or PGA Tour Player of the Year.
“So golf is very interesting in that a week or two weeks could change, change the whole trajectory of your whole year. So never losing sight of the fact that you're only two wins in a row from being the hottest player on the planet, that's a funny thing in our game. I think maybe wins are maybe a little overweighted as far as how good a golf you're playing on a week-to-week basis, but that's the name of the game in our sport, it's how many wins an what tournaments did you win.
“My game's in a really good spot. I've been trying to double down on the process that got me to where I am, not change a whole lot and just look for small incremental improvements and I think the consistent play I've had this year is a testament to that."

His first jobs were on Slam Dunk (basketball) and Football Monthly magazines, and he's worked for the Sunday Times, Press Association and ESPN. He has faced golfing greats Sam Torrance and Sergio Garcia, but on the poker felt rather than the golf course. Jeff's favourite course played is Sandy Lane in Barbados, which went far better than when he played Matfen Hall in Northumberland, where he crashed the buggy on the way to the 1st tee!
