Paul Casey joins LIV Golf
The breakaway LIV Golf Series has caused quite the controversy in the golf world, as several golfers make the switch from the PGA Tour to the Saudi backed series. As tensions run high, the golf world is in a split. Adding to the growing list of players to join the series is Paul Casey, who announced his intentions to play the third event.
The World no. 26 said that he would play at the third event of the LIV Series at the Trump National Golf Club Bedminster later this month. The 44-year-old will join his Ryder Cup colleagues Lee Westwood, Sergio García, Ian Poulter and Graeme McDowell and will be part of the Crushers GC Team.
“Paul Casey adds to the growing list of Top 50 golfers”: LIV Golf Series executive
“LIV Golf continues to attract the best players in the sport as it builds increasingly competitive fields with each event,” LIV Golf’s chief executive, Greg Norman, said to the Guardian. “Paul Casey adds to the growing list of top 50 golfers who are excited to be part of an innovative and entertaining format that is creating something new for golf. His proven track record on a global stage adds another exciting piece to the competition as we prepare for Bedminster.”
Golfers who do join the LIV Series are receiving much backlash from the PGA Tour and the DP World Tour. The PGA Tour has gone ahead and indefinitely suspended all golfer who are a part of the breakaway tour. The DP World Tour on the other hand, has sanction $100,000 from all the golfers who played the first LIV Event. This has sparked outrage amongst the golfers who are not threatening legal action.
