The likes of Dustin Johnson, Bryson Dechambeau, Brooks Koepka, Cameron Smith, and new $500m man Jon Rahm, are all in Mayakoba for the first tournament of 2024.

But reports early on Friday – which is so far unconfirmed by LIV officials – claimed that over 50% of the 52-strong field are suffering with the affliction.

Mail Sport can confirm that some players were heading out of the clubhouse to warm up for the 1:15pm EST start early on Friday, and it is unlikely that play will be postponed.

James Corrigan of the Daily Telegraph reported that ‘none of the players want to withdraw’ from the first day of play, despite ‘more than half’ being affected.

It is currently unclear which players are suffering from the effects of the food poisoning, with the majority of the players all staying in the same five-star resort in Mexico.

The news on Friday morning will come as a huge blow to LIV Golf chiefs, who have spent hundreds of millions of dollars ahead of a brand new season of the breakaway tour.
