PGA Tour to Allow Players to Play Saudi Event with Conditions

The PGA Tour has decided to allow almost two-dozen players to take part in February’s Saudi International Tournament. 

Players that are heading to the Saudi International include Dustin Johnson, Xander Schauffele and Bryson DeChambeau, among others.

However, there are conditions. 

Players who play in the Saudi event will be required to add the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am to their schedule in future years. 

The Pebble Beach event takes place at the same time at the Said event. 

According to a memo sent out by the Tour, players who have played Pebble Beach over the last fie years will be required to play it once over the next two years. 

Players who have not played Pebble Beach over the least five years, must play the event twice over the next three years. 

This all comes as a rift continues to build between the PGA Tour ad the new Saudi-backed golf league that is headed by Greg Norman. 

The Saudi International will be played February 3 to February 6 at Royal Greens Golf and Country Club.
