Poulter, Westwood, others in LIV threaten lawsuits

Ian Poulter and Lee Westwood are among a group of 16 LIV Golf players fined and banned from next week's Scottish Open who have "threatened the DP World Tour with legal actions unless their sanctions are rescinded by Friday." The punishments, which included monetary fines and bans from upcoming tournaments, "were handed down by the DP World Tour ... last Friday as they formally moved to punish all players who have signed up" for LIV Golf. There is a DP World Tour deadline by next Friday, July 8, that "means the rebels can't play until they have paid their fines, although LIV Golf's response was to offer financial support to its players to cover any penalties or legal costs they may incur." In an open letter the 16 players "claim that the DP World Tour is being hypocritical for banning them while allowing others to feature in events outside their tour, claiming the penalties levelled against them are 'grossly unfair and likely unlawful'" (London TELEGRAPH, 6/30).
