Circuit LIV: points for the world ranking?

LIV Golf Tour Commissioner Greg Norman wants World Ranking points to be accrued by participants of his various tournaments.

According to the former player who delivered an interview to the FOX News network on Saturday, his organization is working hard these days to facilitate the task of its golfers who want to participate in major events. Last week they were able to take part in the U.S. Open, but others won’t necessarily be as the PGA has declared “persona non grata” those who tried their luck in the new circuit financed by a Saudi public investment fund. Moreover, nothing indicates that it will be easy in the future to play the American Open while being a member of the LIV.

“We are in the process of applying for world ranking points. […] We worked very closely with the technical committee to understand all the factors involved in all of this. Honestly, it will be interesting because among the people who vote on every new player showing up there is Jay Monahan, Norman said of the PGA commissioner. We will see if he will save himself from the vote after what he said on television.

The claims the Aussie is referring to are the words spoken by Monahan to CBS Sports over a week ago. The big boss of the PGA said that the departure of some important names to the LIV was an unfortunate decision.

“It’s intriguing, but at the same time sad, to see this added pressure, since our organization is good. She is well supported and the field of competitors is incredible, mentioned Norman. If we are in the points of the world ranking, everything else should follow, in our opinion.
