He also addressed the three players that are filing restraining orders in order to get back into the FedEx Cup Playoffs which start next week.
“As part of the suit, Taylor Gooch, Matt Jones, and Hudson Swafford are seeking a temporary restraining order to play in the FedEx Cup Playoffs, despite knowing they would be ineligible for tournament play as early as June, and of course, the year’s worth of communication in advance of their decision to join the Saudi Golf League,” wrote Monahan.
Monahan wrapped the memo by encouraging players to speak up about the LIV Tour and speak out against it.
