Players Dropped By LIV

Players Dropped by LIV

With just 48 roster spots, it was inevitable that some players who signed up for LIV were going to be on the outside looking in. Indeed, since LIV’s business model is to sign “name” players away from other Tours (as opposed to developing its own fields) most players in the field are in danger of losing their spot as soon as a more prominent player is signed.

I hope for the sake of those who are not currently on teams that they are still being taken care of by LIV, for which they risked their golfing futures.

To see every current LIV golfer’s OWGR before signing with LIV, follow the link.

Below is a list of players who signed for one or more LIV events and their current status: In or Out. I say “signed for one or more” because a couple of the players maintain that they only ever intended to play one or two events. There is no way to test the veracity of that, so I take them at face value.
