Has Jason Kokrak Cut Ties With Saudi?

Jason Kokrak is playing in this week’s Masters and eagle-eyed viewers will have noticed that the ‘Golf Saudi’ logo on his golf bag has disappeared – at least in the images we have seen.

The American was announced as a Golf Saudi Ambassador prior to the 2021 Open at the Royal St. George’s. “Kokrak will look to share his own insights on how golf can reach new audiences and ensure its future development,” Golf Saudi said in its announcement, with Kokrak saying: alongside one of the most forward thinking entities within golf currently.I’d like to share my own Insights with them and do my part in terms of growing golf within the Kingdom, while also telling my own fans about the many marvels that Saudi Arabia has to offer. ”

The three-time PGA Tour Winner has been one of the names linked to the new Saudi-backed Super League, officially called the LIV Golf Invitational Series. On a podcast in January, he said, “I want to make as much money as I can in a little time” when talking about the at-the-time rumored golf league.

Kokrak is not listed on the Golf Saudi Ambassadors web page, which features Adri Arnaus and Pablo Larrazabal from the DP World Tour and Ladies European Tour players Anne van Dam, Anna Nordqvist, Amy Boulden and Camilla Lennarth.
