The No. 2-ranked amateur in the world, Eugenio Chacarra, is turning professional to play for LIV Golf

Eugenio Chacarra made a name for himself at Oklahoma State. During his junior year as a Cowboy, Chacarra earned first-team All-America status from both the GCAA and Golfweek.

He made three starts on the PGA Tour in 2022, most recently at the Wells Fargo Championship where he missed the cut. Now, it’s conceivable we may never see him on Tour again.

The 22-year-old from Spain has decided to turn pro and play in the LIV Golf Series.

“I had already achieved everything as an amateur and now I will be able to gain experience as a professional,” he told the Spanish sports newspaper MARCA.

On April 13, it was announced Chacarra forfeited his PGA Tour University status to return to school. Now he heads to the Saudi-backed, Greg Norman-led breakaway league.

He joins Brooks Koepka, Bryson DeChambeau, and Abraham Ancer as recent commits.
