Matthew Wolff, the 2019 NCAA individual champion who won in just his fourth start as a pro, is among three players to be announced by the LIV Golf Invitational Series on Monday as joining the 48-player field at Pumpkin Ridge outside of Portland.

Carlos Ortiz and Oklahoma State junior Eugenio Chacarra, the world’s second-ranked amateur, are also joining LIV Golf.

Wolff, 23, won the 2019 3M Championship on the PGA Tour and along with Viktor Hovland and Collin Morikawa turned pro with considerable fanfare.

But Wolff has struggled in recent years and acknowledged mental health issues that have made performing at a high level difficult. Wolff tied for 40th at the Travelers Championship and was ranked 20th in the world at the end of 2020 but has slipped to 79th.
