Four LIV golfers enter DP World Tour event hosted at St Andrews

A handful of LIV Golf players will tee it up at the home of golf on the DP World Tour despite being regular competitors in the Saudi-financed league…

 

Four names from the LIV Golf roster have entered the Alfred Dunhill Links Championship next week.

Talor Gooch, Louis Oosthuizen, Hudson Swafford and Peter Uihlein are among the invitations for the DP World Tour event held at St Andrews, Carnoustie and Kingsbarns.

As reported by Sports Illustrated, Johann Rupert, chairman of the Swiss firm and event sponsor Compagnie Financiere Richemont, largely has jurisdiction over the invitations.

A DP World Tour spokesperson has said all four players are eligible because they were never members of the tour and if they were, they gave it up before making their LIV debuts.

Oosthuizen was a member of the formerly-named European Tour but handed in his card before playing at LIV’s first event in June 2022 at Centurion Golf Club near London.

DP World Tour chief executive Keith Pelley has previously praised the South African for handling his tour exit in “a classy manner.”

“He’s not said one word against us publicly since. He’s a gentleman and I wish him nothing but the best,” Pelley said at the 2022 BMW PGA Championship.

Uihlein, a member of 4Aces GC, is also a former member of the DP World Tour and is excited to be returning to Scotland in 2023 where he’s previously shown promising form.

“I played last year and asked if I could play again since it lined up with my schedule,” Uihlein said to SI.com.

“I love the event, almost won it years ago, finished 10th last year and always played it when I was a member, so I’m glad to be going back.”

Gooch and Swafford were both winners on the PGA Tour before joining the Saudi-financed league which is nearing the end of its second season.

Laurie Canter, who has played in LIV Golf events this year for Majesticks GC in the absence of Sam Horsfield, has also entered having played the Cazoo Open de France last week.

Due to his exemption status, the Englishman avoided a £100,000 fine that was given to a number of his LIV colleagues following an arbitration panel’s decision to allow the tour to financially sanction players.

Canter also played in the ISPS Handa World Invitational last month. He has yet to win on the DP World Tour.
