World No.17 Cameron Young is reportedly the latest target for LIV Golf.
Per The Times report (opens in new tab), the American, who finished runner-up in last month’s 150th Open at St Andrews, could be heading to the Saudi-backed LIV Golf Invitational Series following the conclusion of this season’s FedEx Cup Playoffs. However, No Laying Up have called it "inaccurate."

Nevertheless, if the report is accurate, it will give a significant boost to the credibility of LIV Golf, as the New Yorker is regarded as one of the brightest talents in the game. Aged just 25, he is also entering the prime years of his career. In that sense, such a capture would be viewed similarly to another reported signing – 28-year-old World No.2 Cameron Smith.

Speaking ahead of this week’s FedEx St. Jude Championship, Smith refused to comment on reports that he’s also about to sign up to LIV Golf. However, it is widely anticipated that he will leave after the conclusion of the FedEx Cup Playoffs and in time for the fourth tournament in the Series, which begins in Boston on 2 September.
If Young does opt for a career with LIV Golf, he will join an increasingly impressive roster that already features the likes of Dustin Johnson, Phil Mickelson, Brooks Koepka and Patrick Reed. Next year, LIV Golf plans to turn the Series into a fully fledged $405m League over 14 tournaments featuring promotion and relegation. With the calibre of players opting to join the venture appearing to be improving, there are surely likely to be even more departures in the months before it starts.
