The Saudi Arabian-led plan to create a breakaway “world tour” has made multi-million dollar contract offers to some of the world’s best players with the promise of “astronomical” prize money, according to a report in the Telegraph Sport.

The report states, world No. 1 Dustin Johnson, Brooks Koepka, Justin Rose and Phil Mickelson have been offered upwards of $30 million contracts to join the league, which will follow a model similar to Formula 1 racing with four-man teams and a limited international schedule.

Jessica Simpson Threw Out Her Scale: 'I Have No Idea How Much I Weigh'

  Jessica Simpson Threw Out Her Scale: 'I Have No Idea How Much I Weigh' “I just want to be able to feel good and zip my pants up. If I don't, I have another size.” Jessica Simpson said Thursday on Today Simpson has always been candid about her struggles with her body image throughout her career. In her 2020 bestselling memoir, Open Book, the singer included a journal entry from 2009 about some of the criticism she received about one of her concert outfits. "Today my heart breaks because people say I'm fat," the journal entry read.

According to the Telegraph Sport report, the circuit hopes to start play in September 2022 although it remains to be seen how many players will be drawn from the PGA Tour. Last year ,Rory McIlroy was the most outspoken star against the PGL telling reporters he “wanted to be on the right side of history.” On Tuesday at the Wells Fargo Championship Webb Simpson offered a similar critique.

“From the beginning it seemed like something that seems pretty farfetched to actually happen,” Simpson said. “I love the PGA Tour. It's given me an incredible opportunity these last 12 years of my life. It's hard for me to believe that it's really going to happen and the guys will really jump ship and go to a completely different way of golf than we've always had.”

  Jessica Simpson Says She's Dated Some Famous Musicians That Nobody Knew About The singer has previously opened up about exes Nick Lachey, John Mayer and more.Simpson's statement is likely a surprise to most, as she shared intimate details about her relationships with Nick Lachey, Tony Romo, John Mayer and more in her 2020 memoir, Open Book.

Simpson went on to explain that he doesn’t know if his manager has been approached by the PGL but added, “[my manager] knows where I stand on it.”

A report late last month in Golfweek revealed the Tour had started a “player impact program” that would incentivize its stars to be more active on social media and engaging with fans via a $40 million bonus pool. Many viewed that plan as a direct response to the PGL proposal.

Tour commissioner Jay Monahan planned to meet with players Tuesday at Quail Hollow Club, where the PGL is sure to be a primary topic. Monahan has already informed players that they would lose their Tour membership if they joined the PGL and given the Tour’s strategic alliance with the European Tour it’s likely those from the Continent would face a similar decision.
