Cameron Young not eschewing PGA Tour for LIV golf

One Cameron doesn’t appear to be bolting for LIV Golf after all.

After reports that reigning British Open and Players champ Cameron Smith was expected to join the Saudi-backed circuit, another report, from The Times of London on Wednesday, said that Cameron Young would follow him. That doesn’t appear to be the case, however, at least for now. Two sources told The Post that Young, a Westchester County native, is likely not headed to LIV.

A judge’s ruling denying a request by three LIV players to be allowed to participate in the PGA Tour’s FedEx Cup Playoffs, which began Thursday, may have played a part in Young’s decision, according to one of the sources.

While landing Smith is another significant get for LIV Golf, his name has long been linked to the league. Young, however, would be something of a surprise.

The 25-year-old rookie, whose father, David, is the longtime head pro at Sleepy Hollow Country Club, has enjoyed a terrific start to his PGA Tour career, with seven top-three finishes, including a runner-up to Smith at the British Open last month.

Last spring, Young didn’t have status on any tour before working his way onto the Korn Ferry Tour, on which he won twice. That earned him a PGA Tour card for this season, and in his second start, he tied for second at the Sanderson Farms Championship last fall. He had a runner-up at the Genesis Invitational at famed Riviera in January. This spring, he had three-straight top-three finishes, capped by a tie for third at the PGA Championship at Southern Hills.

After the runner-up finish at St. Andrews, followed by a tie for second two weeks ago at the Rocket Mortgage Classic, Young has climbed to No. 17 in the world.

Meanwhile, players who tee it up for the rival faction continue to be suspended by the PGA Tour.

On Thursday, Young shot a 3-under 67 in the opening round of the FedEx St. Jude Championship, the first of three playoff events. He was tied for 30th heading into the second round.
