After a successful appeal from LIV golfers Ian Poulter, Adrian Otaegui, and Justin Harding, the three are now granted the chance to play in the Scottish Open this week.
The three stars were among 16 players who were fined approximately $105,000 for playing in the first LIV Golf event last month without the required releases. It was a reported violation of tournament regulation, as the roster members were each lobbying for a lawsuit which ultimately has come ahead today.
Ultimately, the players were seen as the victors of the situation, one which may not sit well with the PGA brass.
In a statement released on the matter, DP World Tour CEO Keith Pelley stated:
“I will simply say we are disappointed by the outcome of today’s hearing but will abide by the decision. It is important to remember, however, this is only a stay of the sanctions imposed, pending the hearing of the players’ appeal as to whether those sanctions were appropriate.”
The Scottish Open will take place from July 7th through the 10th.
