Tour pro returns to DP World Tour following LIV Golf stint

Published

on

After spending two years on LIV, Bernd Wiesberger is headed back to the DP World Tour.

Subsequently, the DP World Tour issued a statement on the 38-year-old.

“Wiesberger’s membership ceased, and he was removed from the Race to Dubai, after he failed to comply with the Tour’s minimum counting event regulation for the 2023 season, having played in only two counting tournaments – the Abu Dhabi HSBC Championship and the Hero Dubai Desert Classic,”

“He subsequently expressed his desire to play a full DP World Tour schedule in 2024 and has fulfilled all sanctions – both financial and tournament suspensions – that were imposed upon him for breaches of the Tour’s conflicting event regulation across 2022 and 2023.

“Consequently, his request for reinstatement has been granted by DP World Tour Chief Executive Keith Pelley, in accordance with the procedure set out in the Members’ Regulations.”

Wiesberger posted a statement on X about his 2024 plans.

Jon Rahm says Tiger hasn’t spoken to him since he joined LIV

Published

on

When Jon Rahm joined LIV golf, it sent shockwaves throughout the world of professional golf and changed the landscape of the game as we know it.

The reigning Masters champion took a large sum of money to start his own team on LIV, “Legion XIII”.

While speaking with ESPN’s Marty Smith, the Spaniard revealed that he reached out to arguably the two biggest names in golf after his decision, Tiger Woods and Rory McIlroy.

Rory was supportive of Rahm and has even said he wants to make sure Rahm can continue to play on the European Ryder Cup team as well.

“Rory has been supportive publicly of my decision and he was privately as well.”

McIlroy also told Gary Neville of “The Overlap”, “I was maybe a little judgmental of the guys who went to LIV Golf at the start, I think it was a bit of a mistake on my part because I now realize that not everyone is in my position or in Tiger Woods’ position.”

When Rahm was asked if he’d heard from Tiger, he shared that he had not.

“Tiger? No, not really, I mean, Tiger, I texted him and the people that try to reach out, you know, the process, when I signed and I just let him know, ‘Hey, you know, this is a personal decision.’

I think he’s [too] busy enough to be talking to me.”

Rahm will tee it up this week at LIV Jeddah looking for his first win on the circuit.

Greg Norman reveals the major champ he is continuing to try and lure to LIV Golf

Published

on

CEO of LIV Golf, Greg Norman, is usually quiet when it comes to LIV’s next target signings, but in a recent interview, he made his intentions clear.

While speaking with Australian Golf Digest, “The Shark” admitted he’s been trying to lure 2021 Masters Champion Hideki Matsuyama to LIV Golf for a few years.

“I’ll give you another example. We’ve been trying to get Hideki Matsuyama (over to LIV Golf). I don’t mind admitting that. When Hideki won (The Genesis Invitational) in LA, what’s the first thing I did? I said, “Congratulations, Hideki. I’m proud of you, mate.”

Norman also mentioned Rory McIlroy, saying that he doesn’t “bring emotion into business”.

“One thing I do is I take emotion out of everything,” Norman said. “I’m very good at that. I don’t bring emotion into business. I don’t bring emotion into anything. If you do, I think that shows the weakness of an individual.

“When Rory missed out on the (2011) Masters when he hit that wayward tee shot on 10, I sent him a message of support afterwards because I felt his pain, and he responded. And if Rory wins this year’s Masters, I’ll say congratulations on achieving the grand slam, right? That’s sport and that’s sportsmanship, and that’s the humility of the game. That’s me. That’s how I would do it.”

LIV Golf is set to play in Jeddah this week, with Anthony Kim expected to make his long awaited return to golf.

Unruly fan behaviour overshadows Charlie Woods’ pre-qualifier round for Cognizant Classic

Published

on

On Thursday, Charlie Woods attempted to pre-qualify for the Cognizant Classic in the Palm Beaches. The round at Lost Lake Golf Club didn’t go so well for Charlie, as he shot a disappointing 86 on the day.

According to The Palm Beach Post, the round quickly became unenjoyable for the 15-year-old. A group of nearly 50 fans followed Woods close to the fairway and ignored pleas from the tournament staff for them to “stay on the cart path”.

“Who are you? The fire marshal?” one fan reportedly said.

The Palm Beach Post also shared that one grandmother pulled her granddaughter out of school in hopes of Woods noticing her. Another fan became disgruntled when Charlie wouldn’t sign a copy of her book, “How I Play Golf,” by Tiger Woods, saying “I live here” when told that Charlie wasn’t allowed to sign mid-round.

Woods was derailed by scoring a 12 on the 7th hole, as well as plenty of other mishaps throughout the round. Unlike most 15-year-old kids, Charlie doesn’t have the luxury of being able to grind through the adversity outside of the public eye.
