Dustin Johnson and Justin Rose receive $30m offer by Saudi 'Super League' in threat to Ryder Cup (sports.yahoo.com)

Several of golf’s biggest names including world No 1 Dustin Johnson and England’s Justin Rose have received multi-million dollar contracts to take part in a breakaway ‘World Tour’ that will force them to choose between Saudi money and the Ryder Cup.

Jay Monahan, the Tour’s commissioner, is due to host a mandatory players meeting here at Quail Hollow on Tuesday evening, where the escalating threat of the PGL to the PGA Tour will be the hot, if not incendiary, topic.

While many considered the Saudi Arabia plan to stage a “World Tour” to be dead in the water after recent Tour moves, it is understood that contracts were sent out last week to some of the elite pros, including Phil Mickelson, Dustin Johnson, Brooks Koepka and England’s Justin Rose.
