OKLAHOMA – The inaugural LIV Golf Invitational Series event's lineup hasn't been confirmed, but the consequences for Saudi-backed breakaway tour players has started.
UPS has lost relations with long-time representative Lee Westwood, who asked for a conflicting-event release to play the inaugural LIV Golf tournament.
Oosthuizen has also been connected to the LIV Golf series, although the inaugural event's field has not been revealed. It will be held June 9-11 at the Centurion Golf Club in London.
UPS has commercial agreements with the PGA of America, Ryder Cup Europe, DP World Tour, and the Masters.
This week, PGA of America CEO Seth Waugh said, "We support the ecosystem as it is." “I don't know whether it's a league, but the league structure is flawed,” he remarked.
