LIV Golfers ‘CANCELLED next season’s PGA Tour membership with Phil Mickelson, Bryson DeChambeau and other rebels told in email they do not meet traditional event requirements’
- Mickelson, DeChambeau are some of the LIV golfers who never turned in their tour tickets when they left for the Saudi-backed tour

After hoping to remain eligible to play on the PGA Tour calendar, the LIV Golf defectors who failed to return their tour tickets have withdrawn them.
In a letter from the PGA Tour obtained by Illustrated SportsPlayers who hadn’t canceled their membership when they left for LIV — such as Phil Mickelson, Bryson DeChambeau and Pat Perez — were told that their membership had been revoked for the 2022-2023 season.
The terms of your contractual commitments to LIV Golf prohibit you from complying with the material obligations set forth in the regulations and make it clear that you do not intend to, and indeed cannot, meet these requirements of membership of the PGA Tour. the letter. written by Kirsten Burgess, the Tour Vice President, Race Administration.
The PGA Tour has informed Phil Mickelson and other LIV golfers that their tour tickets have been revoked

“The Tour cannot enter into a membership agreement with a player where, as here, it can reasonably be expected that the player will fail to fulfill its material obligations under that agreement.
“Therefore, your PGA Tour membership cannot and will not be renewed for the 2022-2023 PGA TOUR season.”
Mickelson has previously stated that his lifetime membership, which he earned by winning at least 20 tournaments, cannot be revoked by joining LIV.
“I worked very hard to get a life-long exemption. And I don’t want to give that up,” Mickelson said at a press conference ahead of LIV’s first event in June.
‘I don’t think I should. I don’t know what that means for the future, but I don’t know what’s going to happen. But I earned it and I’m not going to just give up.”
Mickelson and DeChambeau have filed an antitrust suit against the PGA Tour, which LIV Golf joined last week.
