Technical support issues
"We are looking forward to the additional addition of PGA Tour players to the LIV Golf Invitational."
U.S. golfer Phil Mickelson, who plays for LIV, is drawing attention by claiming that many of the current PGA Tour players want to join LIV. Mickelson said ahead of the team championship, the last tournament of 2023 LIV at Trump National Doral in Doral, Florida, on the morning of the 19th, "PGA Tour players seem to want to see LIV and be a part of it."
Mickelson said: "Everyone here is happy and enjoying themselves. Feeling camaraderie with each other, they are playing golf around the world. Many PGA Tour players want to join, but the problem is how many seats there are. He added, "Now there are more players who want to participate than in the seats."
LIV announced on the 16th that the withdrawal of Korean-American Kim Si-hwan, Chase Koepka, James Fyatt (USA), and Jeddire Modern (Australia), who had performed poorly among the players who played in 2023. Among them, Piot played for Mickelson's High Flyers GC. Their vacancy will be given to the No. 1 player in the LIV Asia International and three players will be selected in qualifying. In order for the four players who lost their seats to play in LIV again, they must play qualifying with those who want to participate.
In this regard, Mickelson predicted that more players could join LIV as the merger negotiations between the PGA Tour and LIV are underway. Mickelson said, "Fiot's place will be filled by the time the preliminary round is held," adding, "The reality is that we get calls from player agents, PGA Tour players, and DP World Tour players that they want to join." I think the merger negotiations open a kind of door," he said.
