Golfers in their twenties and thirties who join the lucrative LIV Golf League have come under fire from European Ryder Cup vice captain Edoardo Molinari.


Vice captain of the Ryder Cup criticizes LIV players for “throwing away their careers.”


Edoardo Molinari, the vice captain of the European Ryder Cup, feels that golfers who sign with LIV Golf between the ages of 20 and 30 are “throwing away their careers.”


The shocking remarks were made by Molinari, the older brother of Francesco, the 2018 Open champion, in an interview with Gazzetto dello Sport.


According to the statistics man, you will probably come to regret decisions you made if they were made only with money in mind.


“Honestly, I don’t understand anyone who is 20 or 30 years old and risks throwing away a career to go to LIV,” he told the newspaper.


“Of course if they come to me and offer me 300 million it would change my life, but they don’t come.”


The 43-year-old also disclosed that during the 2023 Ryder Cup in Italy, the breakaway circuit made contact with Nicolai Hojgaard over a possible transfer.


In the end, Hojgaard of Denmark rejected LIV.

Rahm’s LIV agreement was reportedly valued at about half a billion dollars.


Hatton, on the other hand, is said to have flipped a coin prior to taking his purported £50 million fee.


Molinari went on, “A few weeks ago, I was speaking with Nicolai Hojgaard who had a good offer.”

“And he turned it down because he knows he will still make a lot of money if he plays well in the future.


“However, he will have more freedom to choose, and he will definitely play in the majors.


“It is difficult to say no in front of a lot of money, but if you make choices based only on money you risk regretting them a little.”


The vice captain of the Ryder Cup criticizes the players of League of International Players for “throwing away their careers.” Molinari stated that he is positive Rahm will be at Bethpage Black in September of the following year.


There have been questions raised recently over his eligibility for selection.


That followed news that the DP World Tour was fining and suspending the reigning Masters winner, as confirmed by the Guardian and Telegraph Sport.


Molinari stated about LIV players, “I think that in two years we will find a way to call them anyway.”


Right now, membership in the European Tour is the sole prerequisite.


“I think someone like Rahm would prefer to compete in the Ryder Cup, no matter the expense. Therefore, I don’t believe he will leave the European circuit.”
