DP World Tour
The DP World Tour has suspended any members that switched over to the LIV Golf Series. They have also been fined 100,000 pounds.

In a not so surprising move by the DP World Tour, they have gone ahead and suspended all players who joined the LIV Golf Series. Along with the ban, they have fined the golfers 100,000 pounds ($123,000).

Many members I have spoken to in recent weeks expressed the viewpoint that those who have chosen this route have not only disrespected them and our Tour, but also the meritocratic ecosystem of professional golf that has been the bedrock of our game for the past half a century and which will also be the foundation upon which we build the next 50 years.

The LIV golfers being suspended from the Scottish Open is a big one as most golfer use that tournament as a prep for the British Open.

It is also likely LIV will not be granted any World Golf Ranking points for their tournaments, which will make it tough for the golfers to qualify for future major championships.
