Golfers are suing the PGA

Nine golfers who have played in LIV tournaments are now suing the PGA Tour, alleging that the suspensions they face are harmful to them.

This is what can be read in documents filed with the court, of which the ESPN network obtained a copy on Wednesday.

Since the creation of the new circuit by Greg Norman, with the financial support of a public investment fund of Saudi Arabia, the PGA has systematically suspended all golfers who have taken part in its events. This approach, according to the complaint, is only intended to harm golfers and harm the competition.

Among the nine plaintiffs, three, namely Talor Gooch, Hudson Swafford and Matt Jones, have therefore requested an injunction in order to be able to participate in the three playoff tournaments of the FedEx Cup, including the St. Jude Championship, next week.

Without this participation, the three men believe that they will not be able to climb the world rankings, thus slashing their chance of obtaining exemptions for the four Grand Slam tournaments.

Phil Mickelson, Bryson DeChambeau, Carlos Ortiz, Ian Poulter, Peter Uihlein, Jason Kokrak, Pat Perez and Abraham Ancer are the other golfers involved in the lawsuit.
