LIV Golf Handed Legal Setback in Europe

Apr 5, 2023

A European arbitration council dealt the DP World Tour a victory in its legal fight with LIV Golf.

The three-person Sports Resolutions panel ruled DP World Tour has the authority to fine and suspend players who compete in conflicting LIV Golf events, a source with knowledge of the decision confirmed to Front Office Sports.

The ruling is expected to be released publicly on Thursday, which coincidentally comes as 18 LIV Golf players and other top players from around the world will play in the first round of the Masters.

“If that is the outcome, then that certainly changes the dynamic of everything,” said four-time major champ Rory McIlroy.

The Times of London was the first outlet to report the decision, which can be appealed.
