Richie Ramsay after Scottish Open bans players from LIV Golf: huge bonus for me

After the PGA Tour reacted to those who decided to perform at LIV Golf, the DP World Tour did the same the day before. The players were banned from participating in future tournaments, along with a £100,000 fine. DP World Tour CEO Keith Pelley made a comment after all and thinks it’s a decision they had to make, given that individuals are working against golf.

“We are partners of the PGA Tour but they have different rules and regulations and we act independently,” he said, as quoted by the National. “They did what they thought was right, we did what we thought was right.

“Every action someone takes in life has a consequence and it’s no different in professional sport, especially if a person chooses to break the rules. That’s what happened here with several of our members.

“Many members I have spoken to in recent weeks have expressed the view that those who have chosen this path have not only disrespected them and our Tour, but also the meritocratic ecosystem of professional golf” .

Scottish Open

The Scottish Open is also among those who have decided to react in the same way and ban those who will play LIV Golf. This is news that has delighted some golfers, like the Scotsman Richie Ramsay. This will be an opportunity for some players to show their quality.

“It’s a huge bonus for me and for the guys around me,” said Scotsman Richie Ramsay. “Guys who are in their mid-70s [on the rankings] and didn’t look like he would get in until he now had a chance.

You want to be there. For me, winning this would change my life.” This is going to change a lot of things in the world of golf, and the question is what will happen in the end. Anyone could have such major problems, but a solution will have to be found.
