Report: Sebastian Munoz to leave PGA Tour, join LIV Golf

Most of the excitement around LIV Golf during its debut season in 2022 stemmed from player movement.

Since the conclusion of the team championship last October, it’s been all quiet on that front for the Greg Norman-led and Saudi Arabia-backed circuit, aside from a report on Mito Pereira and a new player joining Dustin Johnson’s 4Aces. But as LIV prepares for its 2023 opener at Mayakoba in Mexico, Feb. 24-26, another PGA Tour winner is expected to join its ranks.

According to the Telegraph, Sebastian Munoz will join LIV Golf in 2023. The Colombian, currently ranked 90th in the world, turned pro in 2015 and won his first and only PGA Tour event at the 2019 Sanderson Farms Championship. He also won the 2016 Club Colombia Championship on the Korn Ferry Tour.

Last fall he was a member of the International team at the Presidents Cup at Quail Hollow, where he compiled a 2-0-1 record, including a win against Scottie Scheffler, the world No. 1 at the time.

The league recently released its 2023 schedule which features 14 events across six countries, including eight in the United States. LIV also secured a TV deal with the CW this offseason.
