LIV Golf series player Sergio GarciaHe has now decided to renounce his DP World Tour Membership.
When I won the Open Championship [last]Sunday, I stated that I was most likely to resign from my membership with the [DP World] Tour, Garcia told ESPN. Obviously, this meant that you were not eligible for the Ryder Cup as you must be a member.
But thanks to all the things that Jon Rahm said. I also had some good conversations on the phone with men. [DP World] Tour. Im going not to do that. I want at least to see what happens when the Ryder Cup qualification commences. Find out what rules and eligibility they have. If I agree with their decisions, [are]I will continue to play on the Tour and I will try to qualify for the Ryder Cup Team. Well continue if it doesnt, but well try again. But it is something that is always in my mind.
The 2017 Masters champion was one the first to join LIV series. Garcia resigned immediately after joining the new tour. However, Garcia is still interested and able to continue on the DP World Tour.
I told Keith Pelley. [CEO of the DP World Tour]I want to continue being a member on the DP World Tour. Garcia stated, I want to play my minimum, support the tour, and still have my eligibility to make Ryder Cup team, Garcia said. He said, Thats great, but we have to do whats best for ourselves. Well see how that turns out.
