The DP World Tour said golfers who broke tour regulations had been fined £100,000 and banned from participating in the Scottish Open, the Barbasol Championship and the Barracuda tournament.
“Every act anyone does in life comes with a result and it’s no different in professional sport, especially if one chooses to break the rules. That’s what happened here with many of our members,” said Keith Bailey, CEO of DP World Tour. In a statement published the news on Friday.
“Many members I have spoken to in recent weeks have expressed the view that those who chose this path were not only respected and respected by our Tour, but also the meritocratic ecosystem of professional golf that has been the bedrock of our game for the past half century and which will also be the foundation on which We build on it for the next 50 years.
“Their actions are unfair to the majority of our members and undermine the tour, which is why we are taking the action we announced today.”
The DP World Tour also warned that future participation in the LIV Golf Series, without the required release, could lead to further penalties.
There are seven LIV events left this year, including an event in Portland starting June 30 and a course at Trump National Golf Club in Bedminster, New Jersey, with the first round on July 29.
