Garcia, Westwood and Poulter no longer welcome at Ryder Cup • Golf.nl
The reason for the cancellation was a conflict between LIV Golfers and the DP World Tour. He was denied permission to play in the first round of the LIV Golf Tournament in London in June last year. Garcia, Westwood, Poulter and Bland and thirteen other players went anyway. Fined £100,000 for serious breach of Tour rules.
So we will take appropriate action if he continues to ignore the committee’s decision
“We thank them for their contribution to the DP World Tour, in particular Sergio, Ian and Lee for their large part in the European Ryder Cup victories. However, their cancellations, together with the sanctions imposed, are the result of their own choices,” said a statement from the DP World Tour. Garcia has scored 28.5 points for Europe, a record for a Spaniard in ten appearances, while Westwood has given the European team 23 points in eleven appearances, while Poulter has collected sixteen points in seven editions.
An independent panel of sporting decisions previously ruled in favor of the DP World Tour to fine all 17 players who switched to LIV Golf. Garcia was the only one who didn’t pay. “He has given no indication that he intends to do so. We will therefore take appropriate action if he continues to ignore the committee’s decision,” the Tour said in a statement.
In addition to Garcia, Westwood, Poulter and Bland, this includes Larry Cantor, Brandon Grace, Justin Harding, Sam Horsfield, Martin Gamer, Pablo Larrazabale, Graeme McDowell, Shawn Norris, Wade Ormsby, Adrian Otegui, Patrick Reed, Charles Schwartzell. Weissberger.
Next week, the DP World Tour will offer additional hurdles to players who have continued to play under the Saudi sponsorship since LIV Golf’s first event.
