A great collegiate golfer is enrolling at LIV.

On Monday, ASU senior David Puig revealed on Instagram that he is going pro but would remain at ASU to complete his degree.

In a long social media statement, Puig expressed gratitude to his instructors and teammates.

“So many more people have helped me over the past few years and I know my success wouldn’t be the same without everyone,” he said. “You’ve helped me to grow and improve in this great program, not only as a player, but also as a person. I’ve loved every minute of it. Thank you!”

The 20-year-old Spaniard didn’t reveal his professional team’s name, but that’s not a mystery either. There is a LIV Golf tournament this week at Rich Harvest Farms south of Chicago, and he is named in the field. He has competed in two LIV Golf events as an amateur. In addition to Joaquin Niemann, Scott Vincent, and Jediah Morgan, Puig is a member of team Torque.

Puig had two tries at the LIV and finished 40th (in London) and 42nd (in Miami) (at Bedminster).

He is the world’s number nine amateur and is now a professional. At Arizona State University, he excelled so well that he was named to the All-American team twice.
