According to ESPN sources, PGA Tour commissioner Jay Monahan met with several tour players’ representatives on Wednesday at Muirfield Village Golf Club, and his message to them was once again plain. Choose between the PGA Tour and the LIV Golf Invitational Series; players cannot compete on both circuits.

“As communicated to our entire membership on May 10, PGA Tour members have not been authorized to participate in the Saudi Golf League’s London event, under PGA Tour Tournament Regulations,” a PGA statement said following the release of LIV’s opening roster.

Following the release of the names of 42 players who will compete in LIV Golf’s first event outside of London next week, the PGA Tour issued a statement on Wednesday that reiterated Monahan’s warning that players who defy the tour’s position would face discipline, including potential fines, suspensions, and/or bans.
