BREAKING: PGA Tour Suspends Current LIV Golf Players, LIV Responds

The PGA Tour has suspended all current and future players who have joined the LIV Golf Tour. 

Also, any player who resigned from the Tour is no longer eligible to play in any Tour events or the Presidents Cup. 


“These players have made their choice for their own financial-based reasons. But they can’t demand the same PGA TOUR membership benefits, considerations, opportunities and platform as you. That expectation disrespects you, our fans and our partners. You have made a different choice, which is to abide by the Tournament Regulations you agreed to when you accomplished the dream of earning a PGA TOUR card and — more importantly — to compete as part of the preeminent organization in the world of professional golf,” wrote PGA Tour commissioner Jay Monahan in a memo sent to players on Thursday morning.

The PGA Tour made the announcement about 30 minutes after LIV Golf had teed off. 

Following the Tour’s announcement, LIV Golf responded almost immediately with a statement of their own. 

“It’s troubling that the Tour, an organization dedicated to creating opportunities for golfers to play the game, is the entity blocking golfers from playing. This certainly is not the last word on this topic. The era of free agency is beginning as we are proud to have a full field of players joining us in London, and beyond,” wrote LIV in a statement. 

Players who are taking part in the LIV Tour will be allowed to play in next week’s U.S. Open at The Country Club in Brookline.
