The DP World Tour has reportedly won the Sports Resolutions arbitration hearing that took place in London in February. The week-long panel hearing was intended to settle the dispute between the DP World Tour and players of the debut LIV Golf London event. The DP World Tour had suspended players and fined them £100,000 for not following the declined release requests which caused the dispute. According to The Times’ Tom Kershaw, the decision is to be announced on the Sports Resolutions website this Thursday just as The Masters gets underway at Augusta National.
If the DP World Tour has won, this will mean the end of the Ryder Cup dreams for many of the LIV Golf players, including the record points scorer Sergio Garcia. Other popular European players such as Ian Poulter, Lee Westwood, Henrik Stenson, Graeme McDowell, and Martin Kaymer, as well as some of the younger golfers like Paul Casey, Thomas Pieters and Bernd Wiesberger, Sam Horsfield, and Laurie Canter will all get suspended and fined for playing in the LIV event. This could also mean that LIV players won’t be allowed to play on the DP World Tour in order to earn world ranking points. Players such as Dustin Johnson, Brooks Koepka, Cameron Smith and Bryson DeChambeau may only have the Asian Tour and golf’s four Majors available to earn OWGR points.
The DP World Tour is a top golf tour dedicated to promoting the game of golf around the world. The investor and tour sponsor DP World Group acts as the main force behind the tournament circuit, with the aim to make golf attractive around the globe. The DP World Tour is part of the European Tour, with several top-ranking players playing on the tour.
The person mentioned in this article is Sergio Garcia, a world-renowned Spanish golfer who currently plays on the PGA Tour, European Tour, and the Asian Tour. With a total of 25 wins, Garcia is considered one of the world’s best golfers, winning more than 20 professional tournaments. He is also the sixth-most successful European golfer of all time, and his performance in over 20 tournaments has led to his nickname “El Niño”.
