The German could be among the protagonists of the LIV Golf Invitational Series, a circuit of eight events that will start from 9 to 11 June in London. Major champion, the 38-year-old from Dusseldorf – who hasn’t won a tournament since 2014, when he triumphed at the US Open – would join other figures such as the British Lee Westwood and Ian Poulter, as well as the Spaniard Sergio Garcia. Yes, important exponents of world golf, but no longer very young.

As well as Kaymer, the likes of Lee Westwood, Sergio Garcia and Ian Poulter are all said to be hoping to compete in the Saudi Series’ inaugural event next month, despite their DP World Tour membership being in the balance. The four European stalwarts have an impressive 54 DP World Tour titles behind them, leaving the tour with an extremely difficult decision surrounding their futures, if they follow through and compete on the breakaway series.
