The PGA Tour has banned all of their events from LIV golfers.

DP World Tour refuses to withdraw over LIV sanctions

The DP World Tour has issued a statement defending the “proportionate, fair and necessary” sanctions imposed on LIV rebels after 16 players threatened legal action unless they were withdrawn.

DP World Tour members, including Ian Poulter and Lee Westwood, were each fined £100,000 and banned from next week’s Genesis Scottish Open and two other events that were sanctioned along with the PGA Tour after being banned earlier this month in the Centurion Club, despite being denied permission.

In an open letter published by The Telegraph, the players are “begging” the DP World Tour to reconsider the sanctions, claiming that the strengthened partnership between the PGA Tour and DP World Tour leaves the last “second fiddle” to the US circuit.

“There has been leaked to the media a letter we received on behalf of a number of LIV Golf players that contains so many inaccuracies that it cannot go unchallenged,” said DP World Tour chief executive Keith Pelley.

“Before players came to LIV Golf, they knew there would be consequences if they chose money over competition. Many of them understood that at the time and accepted that. Indeed, as one player mentioned in the letter in a media interview earlier this year: ‘If they ban me, they ban me.’ It is not credible that some are now surprised by the measures we have taken.

“The letter claims that these players ‘care deeply’ about the DP World Tour. An analysis of past years’ participation statistics on our Tour of several of the leading players mentioned suggests otherwise.”

Pelley alludes to a player who has only played six Rolex Series events in the past five years and another who has played only four, and questions a player who had made a “signed commitment” to play at the Irish Open. to play.

“I wish many of them were eager to play on our Tour then as they seem to be now, based on the fact that they have either canceled their PGA TOUR membership or, if they are still members, indefinitely have been suspended.” Pelley added.
