The FedEx St. Jude Championship’s grounds will not be made available to the LIV Golf trio by the PGA Tour next week.
The three LIV golfers who have qualified for the FedEx Cup are not being admitted into the FedEx Stableford next week, the PGA Tour is standing firm.
at TPC Southwind, the Jude Championship.
After competing in the opening LIV Golf event in London in June, three players—Talor Gooch, Hudson Swafford, and Matt Jones—were suspended by the tour.
These three players were among the 11 players who filed a temporary restraining order (TRO) against the Tour earlier this week. Under normal circumstances, this would make them eligible to play the following week.

In spite of the PGA Tour’s attempts to stifle competition, we believe that golfers should be permitted to play the game.
In an earlier interview with Carlson Tucker, Bryson DeChambeau, one of the 11 players in the TRO, acknowledged that he is aware that the PGA Tour will eventually host LIV.
“The ban is absurd,” someone said.
DeChambeau, the 2020 US Open champion, said: “No, I’m not worried about that.”
