AFP reported on the 13th that 2016 Open Champion Henrik Stenson (Sweden), who joined LIV Golf last year, also withdrew from the DP World Tour (formerly the European Professional Golf Tour).
On the 13th, Stenson said, “I am grateful for everything the DP World Tour has given me for a long time,” but “It drove me into a corner so that I had no choice. It was announced that the DP World Tour membership was returned.
The reason Stenson withdrew from the DP World Tour was because the DP World Tour confirmed the sanctions imposed on the players who joined LIV Golf sooner or later.
The DP World Tour fined 26 players who joined LIV Golf from 12,000 pounds (about 20 million won) to 100,000 pounds (about 167.3 million won), and 12 of them said the punishment was unfair. You recently won a lawsuit you filed.
Prior to this, four people, Sergio Garcia (Spain), Lee Westwood, Ian Poulter, and Richard Bland (above England), withdrew from the DP World Tour when the punishment was confirmed.
Withdrawal from the DP World Tour means not only that you can no longer participate in DP World Tour events, but also that the possibility of participating in the Ryder Cup, a US-Europe golf competition, has completely disappeared.먹튀검증
Stenson played in five Ryder Cups and contributed to three European championships.
In particular, he was chosen early as the general manager of the Ryder Cup to be held in Italy in September, but was stripped of the general manager last year when he joined LIV Golf.
Stenson won 11 wins on the DP World Tour and 6 wins on the PGA Tour. Of the six wins on the PGA Tour, two wins, including the Open, were held on the DP World Tour.
