The golf world has been abuzz in recent days over the Super Golf League and its potential to disrupt or even overtake the PGA. Some of the biggest names in the sport have hinted (or outright discussed) the desirability of leaving the long-running golf association to align themselves with the separatist golf league.

Dustin Johnson will not be part of it. The two-time major champion reiterated his commitment to the PGA on Sunday with a statement.

“Over the past few months there has been a lot of speculation about an alternative tour; much of which seems to have included me and my future in professional golf.

“I think now is the time to put that speculation to rest. I am fully committed to the PGA Tour. I am grateful for the opportunity to play on the best tour in the world and for all that it has given me. brought to me and my family.

“While there are always areas where our Tour can improve and grow, I am grateful for our leadership and the many sponsors who make the PGA Tour the premier tour of golf.”

Along with Johnson’s commitment, that means all of the current world’s top eight players have indicated they have no intention of joining the Saudi-backed league. Other big names, such as Brooks Koepka and Jordan Spieth have also thrown their commitment behind the PGA.

While Phil Mickelson has pushed hard for consideration of the new league, Bryson DeChambeau remains the only major champion under 30 who has yet to commit to playing in the PGA. (UPDATE: Bryson too publicly committed to the PGA a bit later).

There were strong reactions from the golfing world to the announcement, particularly regarding what it means for the Saudi-backed league and the fact that it came via the PGA itself.
