Ahead of the second season of LIV Golf, sponsored by Saudi Arabia’s sovereign wealth fund, seven players have been eliminated from the roster.
LIV Golf will hold its first tournament of the 2023 season (total prize money of $25 million) at El Chameleon Golf Course (par 71) in Playa del Carmen, Mexico for three days from the 25th (Korean time).
Ahead of this season, seven players transferred to LIV Golf: Thomas Peters (Belgium), Mito Pereira (Chile), Sebastian Muñoz (Colombia), Dean Bermister먹튀검증 (South Africa), Danny Lee (New Zealand), and Brandon Steele (USA). . Since only 48 players can participate in the LIV golf tournament, some players have been eliminated from LIV golf as they join.
Golf Monthly, a media specializing in golf, said Wade Ormsby (Australia), Laurie Canter (England), Sadom Kaew Kanchana (Thailand), Pachara Kongwat Mai (Thailand), and Heni Du Plessy, who did not stand out much in LIV golf last season. (South Africa), Adrian Otaeghi (Spain), and Turk Pettit (USA) have announced that they will not be able to play at LIV Golf this season.
Ormesby competed in all seven individual LIV golf events last season, but her best performance was a tie for 22nd in the opening game, and she continued to slump. Canter also placed in the top 10 twice, a tie for 8th and a tie for 10th, but it wasn’t enough to remain in LIV Golf.
However, Golf Monthly reported that the elimination of Awakanchana was a bit of a surprise. His best finish at LIV Golf was a tie for 13th, but his world ranking is 76th, higher than Muñoz, Steele and Danny Lee, who transferred this season. Kaew Kanchana participated in the Open Championship, a major tournament held last year, and tied for 11th place.
Du Plessy and Otaegi also had a runner-up and a tie for 6th place once, but other than that, I couldn’t find any good results.
Foreign media said, “Most of these players will play on the Asian Tour,” but “but some of them may qualify for LIV golf provisional participation.”
An official from LIV Golf told The Associated Press, “Some of the players were free agents who were not under contract, so they were able to be substituted.” .
