Hideki Matsuyama is ready to sign with the Arabs

Each passing week brings news to the horizon of the planet LIV Golf. Rumors have swirled, more and more, last week about the possible involvement of sponsors, which I would dare define as “heavy,” interested in naming four-player teams in league events led by Greg Norman.

The signal would be very important in a scenario that has hitherto been marked by many contracts being broken, also by historical sponsors, with players who have signed with LIV (Phil Mickelson, Dustin Johnson, Ian James Poulter, to name a few).

The top candidate is called Adidas Golf, and he’s ready to pay a billion-dollar sponsorship ticket. The team that received the brand established by Adi Dassler in 1949 would obviously be Team 4Aces, led by Dustin Johnson, already a testament to the house.

Obviously, no official comments or press releases on the matter have yet been released by Adidas Golf. The idea for the branded team is part of the larger Greg Norman project, which in all of this would see the birth of a team system close to that found in Formula 1.

The LIVGolfLatest Twitter account (not strictly connected to LIV Golf), talks about other sponsors interested in becoming the LIV Golf Team Title. AT&T and Srixon. The emergence of the Japanese brand is even more significant when linked to another rumor that has recently been echoing on social media.

Hideki Matsuyama and Leif

Hideki Matsuyama, Srixon’s testimonial, would be willing to sign with the Saudi League for a whopping $400 million. Hideki Matsuyama is a Japanese golfer, primarily active on the PGA Tour and Japan Tour golf.

He is the first Japanese in the history of the sport to win a men’s major tournament, thanks to his victory in the 2021 Masters Tournament. Born in Matsuyama City, he began playing golf at the age of four under his father’s supervision.

He finished his education at Tohoku Fukushi University in Sendai, and won the 2010 and 2011 editions of the Asian Amateur Golf Championship. This result qualifies him directly to the 2011 Masters Tournament (the first Japanese amateur to do so), where he won the Silver Cup and is the only amateur golfer in the competition.

The following week, he finished third in the Japan Open Golf Championship, one of the stages of the Japan Golf Tour. In 2011 he represented Japan at the Shenzhen 2011 Universiade, winning gold in the individual and team competitions – along with Fujimoto, Kobukuro and Tomimura.

After defending the title at the Asian Amateur Championships, he won the Taiheiyo Masters, another stop on the Japan Golf Tour, in November. [8] His success at the amateur level earned him the number one spot in the Amateur World Rankings in August 2012.
