After winning a £15 million prize, LIV Golf Rebel hailed himself as “one of the best in the world.”.

Following his victory on Sunday in Jeddah, Talor Gooch, an American, declared himself to be one of the world’s best golfers.
He was crowned the 2023 LIV Golf champion.

One of the best golfers in the world, in Talor Gooch’s opinion.

After winning an incredible £15 million bonus as the 2023 LIV Golf Champion, Talor Gooch feels he is among the world’s best golfers.

Gooch lost to Brooks Koepka in a two-hole play-off, but he still finished second in the LIV Jeddah event at Royal Greens.
But his runner-up result at the event was sufficient, as he passed Cam Smith in the season-long standings to emerge as LIV’s second overall victor.

The American sensation, who finished third on the breakaway circuit in 2023, had perhaps his best year as a professional golfer with his title victory.

Gooch feels he can compete with the best players in the sport as a result of this.
You know, I’ve always thought I was good enough to play against the best players in the world as a professional golfer,” he said following his victory.
And now that I’m here, I believe I’m among the best in the world.

From the time I was nine years old, I have been dreaming about this.
It’s beyond words to express how much it means and how gratifying it is for me to reach this point in my career and experience this validated season.
Gooch had been leading the LIV standings for most of the season, but he was behind Smith going into the final week of the regular season.

After winning the LIV events in Adelaide and Singapore back-to-back in April, the American gained notoriety.
Two months later, in Andalucia, he completed the hat-trick.
Gooch was definitely a man in form, and many people predicted that he would be called up to the US Ryder Cup squad, but that never happened.

Gooch’s form may not have been noticed by many after he left the PGA Tour to join the Saudi-backed organization.
The American acknowledged that he uses this lack of recognition as motivation in remarks made following the Sunday title coronation.
Indeed, I believe that I always play with a grudge,” Gooch remarked.

Simply put, everyone has always kind of ignored me, which is okay.
However, it’s a motivating factor for me.
It’s definitely inspiring to hear what DJ had to say at the end of the previous season and to be a part of the new team.

When the American competes in LIV’s season finale, the Team Championship in Miami, he will have the opportunity to add to the £15 million bonus he received in Jeddah last weekend.
The goal for Gooch and his RangeGoats teammates is to finish the LIV Golf double in 2023, with a purse of £41 million up for grabs.
