The Australian PGA does not suspend LIV Golf players
Australian professionals who have participated in tournaments operated by LIV Golf will not be disqualified from tournaments organized by LIV Golf PGA Australia.
Gavin Kirkman, chief executive of the association, told Reuters news agency.
This means that until now, Wade Ormsby, Matt Jones, Travis Smyth, Jediah Morgan, and LIV Golf players (and members of Punch GC) will be able to participate freely in events organized by their association.
She has so far identified why LIV contract signing rumors by Cameron Smith and Mark Leishman are increasingly persistent, a particularly “hot” situation for the current Open Champion. in disagreement In the battle to win the FedEx Cup.
In such a context, Kirkman’s statement carries significant weight, removing any doubts about it.
“Players (Australians, NDR) who will return to play will be welcomed if it is not a non-compliant event.”
Due clarification on incompatible events refers to two tournaments that have been approved with the DP World Tour, the Australian Open and the Australian PGA Championship.
But the chief executive of Australia’s PGA identified the following:
“Australian players who go home, wherever they are currently playing, as members of our association, will be able to play our tournaments”
“The topic has already been discussed with the other rounds.”
This seems to rule out the possibility of re-creating the DP World Tour tournament mode as it was punished With the PGA Tour (Scottish Open, Barbasol Championship and Barracuda Championship).
Based on recent rumors, in 2023 LIV Golf was scheduled to hold three events that would take place in Australia next year.
The first, in April, is right on the LIV golf calendar.
The other two will instead fall into the invitation series within the Asian Tour calendar.
Kirkman also has clear thoughts on the subject.
“It is something that is destined to improve the game? At the moment what I don’t want, don’t like or hear about. And don’t read here and there people discussing what’s good for golf and what’s not.”
“If fans want to attend events that are played in different formats, that’s their decision.”
I don’t have the pleasure of meeting Mr. Kirkman in person, but he sure goes straight to the point.
