PGA Tour players allowed to compete in LIV Golf qualifying

Could we see a number of PGA Tour players head to LIV Golf Promotions? The circuit isn’t stopping them…

 

PGA Tour players will be allowed to play in LIV Golf’s version of Q-school.

The tour says LIV Golf Promotions isn’t an “unauthorised tournament,” so members can compete without repercussions.

A full statement from a tour spokesperson was given to various media outlets:

“Based on the information publicly available regarding the LIV Golf Promotion event, it is determined to be a qualifying event only and not a part of an unauthorised series.

“Therefore, the LIV Golf Promotion event is not categorised as an ‘Unauthorised Tournament’. This classification is subject to change should the details of the event change.”

LIV Golf Promotions is a three-day, 72-hole event that gets underway on December 8, offering three places on to the 2024 LIV Golf schedule.

This could mean a PGA Tour member earns a spot for the Saudi-funded league’s third season. We’re yet to discover if this could lead to further suspensions.

A number of PGA Tour stars were suspended by the circuit for joining LIV Golf which held its first event in June 2022.

European stars such as Lee Westwood, Ian Poulter and Sergio Garcia were fined by the DP World Tour too, which led to resignations across the board.

The PGA Tour and the Public Investment Fund, which financially backs LIV Golf, are still working towards a peace agreement ahead of the December 31 deadline.

When two PGA Tour representatives appeared before the US Senate in July, it was revealed LIV golfers regaining their tour memberships was one of many stunning preliminary proposals.

What is the LIV Golf Promotions event?

LIV Golf Promotions is a pathway not only to LIV but to the Asian Tour as well.

After four rounds, the top three players on the stroke play leaderboard will gain entry to LIV, while the rest of the top 10 players will earn places in the lucrative International Series.

Rounds one and two of LIV Golf Promotions feature criteria players must meet to participate, and the overall winner will bank $200,000.
