According to a report from The Telegraph, the next big name to make the move to the LIV Golf Series, a circuit funded by Saudi Arabia and led by Greg Norman, is another Masters champion.

Bubba Watson will join Dustin Johnson, Patrick Reed, Charl Schwartzel, Phil Mickelson and Sergio Garcia as green jacket recipients to desert the PGA Tour.

Watson has missed a significant chunk of time this season due to a torn meniscus.

Bubba Watson’s last solo top-10 finish on the PGA Tour came more than a year ago at the Rocket Mortgage Classic (T-6). His last win came at the 2018 Travelers Championship. He’s fallen to No. 86 in the Offical World Golf Ranking.

On Wednesday, LIV announced several changes coming to the circuit next year including upping the fields to 48 players, across 12 teams, playing in 14 events.

According to the report, Watson will make his LIV debut at the Boston stop in September.
