Sebastian Munoz is expected to leave the PGA Tour for LIV Golf sometime this week, The Telegraph and Golf Digest reported Tuesday.
Munoz is a one-time winner on the Tour, defeating South Korea’s Im Sung-Jae in the Sanderson Farms Championship on Sep. 22, 2019. A native of Bogota, Colombia, he has played in 134 events, including six this season, most recently getting cut after the second round of the Farmers Insurance Open last weekend.
The 30-year-old Munoz is in the field for the Saudi International, which begins on Thursday. While the event is sanctioned by the Asian Tour, it is sponsored by Saudi Arabia’s Public Investment Fund — LIV’s Golf’s primary source of financial support.
A number of LIV golfers join Munoz in the field, including Cameron Smith, Dustin Johnson and Phil Mickelson.
LIV will open its second season on Feb. 24 at Mayakoba, Mexico, with individual and team competition once again being featured.
