The American Professional Golf (PGA) tour even put a strong measure in order not to lose players to LIV Golf.
According to US golf media such as the Golf Channel on the 1st, the PGA Tour implements a new rule from the 2022-2023 season that “players who have participated in unsanctioned tournaments cannot participate in PGA Tour-approved tournaments for one year.”
By ‘unsanctioned competition’ we mean, in effect, LIV Golf. The PGA Tour official tournament covers not only the PGA Tour event, but also the second division, the Korn Ferry Tour tournament, and the Monday qualifying rounds and qualification tests for the PGA Tour and Korn Ferry Tour tournaments.
This rule applies not only to PGA Tour members, but also to amateurs and non-members playing on other tours, without exception. Therefore, players who are considering entering the LIV golf tournament as players who are considering advancing to the PGA Tour are likely to be hit hard. 토토사이트
Meanwhile, Sebastian Muñoz (Colombia), 90th in the men’s golf world ranking, will join LIV Golf. The British Telegraph reported that Muñoz is scheduled to play from the opening match of the LIV Golf Invitational, which opens in Mexico on the 25th. Muñoz debuted on the PGA Tour in 2015 and won the 2019 Sanderson Farms Championship by beating Lim Seong-jae (25, CJ Logistics) in overtime.
In addition, he is a familiar player to domestic golf fans as he paired with Lim Seong-jae at the Presidents Cup last year and recorded 1 win and 1 draw. In the single match play on the final day of the Presidents Cup, he defeated Scotty Scheffler (USA), who was world number 1 at the time, and added one point.
Although Muñoz was recruited, the future of LIV Golf, which is in its second year this year, is not expected to be very bright. Contrary to what was announced, there is no recruitment of top stars, and only two players confirmed to join this year are Muñoz and Mito Pereira (Chile).
