More player leakage to LIV and more invitations to the Ryder Cup

More player leakage to LIV and more invitations to the Ryder Cup

The convulsive times continue in world golf. While the LIV, the circuit promoted by the capital of Saudi Arabia, continues to receive new players who give muscle to a Tour that lands this week in Boston, the European Tour announced a new election policy for next year’s edition in Rome of the Ryder Cup.

Luke Donald, the captain of the European team, will now have six elections to make the ’12’ that will have the responsibility of recovering the Cup in the Roman Marco Simone next year, twice as many as Padraig Harrington had last year. Only three players from world rankings and as many from the DP World Tour will make the team in a ranking that kicks off next week at the BMW PGA in Wentworth.

On the other hand, according to different information, In addition to Cameron Smith, the latest British winner Joaquin Niemann, Marc Leishman, Anirban Lahiri, Harold Varner and Cameron Tringale will also make it to LIV. Thirteen of the top 40 players in the world ranking at the beginning of the year are already part of the new circuit.

In this sense, the tension begins to be felt between the players themselves who will coincide next week – the veto of the rebels in the DP World Tour by a judge is provisionally suspended – in Wentworth. “It’s going to be hard to digest. I hate what LIV is doing to golf. It’s going to be hard for me to go there and see 18 of them playing there,” said Rory McIlroy, the new FedEx Cup winner.
