English golfers Ian Poulter and Lee Westwood, two of LIV Golf’s first recruits, have joined a group of 16 players who signed a letter warning the DP World Tour of legal action if their fines and bans from the Scottish Open are not retracted, according to London’s The Telegraph.
Poulter, Westwood and others were fined £100,000 each and banned from next week’s Scottish Open by the DP World Tour, formerly named the European Tour, for joining the Saudi-funded LIV Golf series.
Players have issued a warning of legal action unless they are allowed to play in the Scottish Open. They have given the DP World Tour a deadline of July 1, 5pm. 16 players from this week’s LIV Golf Invitational in Portland signed the open letter.
“To this end, we ask that you rescind your fines and suspensions by 5:00 pm on Friday, July 1, 2022,” the letter read, which was obtained by The Telegraph. “If not, you will leave us with no choice but to employ the various other means and methods at our disposal to rectify these wrongs.”
