Sources also told Sports Illustrated that both golfers are expected to participate in the circuit’s first U.S.-based event at the end of the month in Oregon. Secondo il rapporto, Reed and DeChambeau signed multi-year deals.

DeChambeau’s manager, Brett Falkoff, responded to the news in a statement to the New York Post, but seemingly did not confirm reports.

Following the fallout of Dustin Johnson’s decision to join the league, DeChambeau appeared to shut down any speculation at the Memorial Tournament last week that he would be leaving the Tour to compete.

Every person out here has their own opinion on it,” Ha detto DeChambeau. “Per me, I personally don’t think that at this point in time I’m in a place in my career where I can risk things like that. I’m loyal to my family that I’ve created around me with sponsors and everything. And as of right now, the golf world is probably going to change in some capacity.

Johnson resigned from the PGA Tour this week after he was announced as a participant in Thursday’s Invitational series. He was subsequently dropped by sponsor RBC – a major sponsor of two PGA Tour events.
