For those of you who keep track of sports news, you may be familiar about the conflict between the PGA Tour and LIV Golf, and all of the players stuck in between the two golf leagues. It has gone from mere controversy to actual lawsuits.
So if you are keeping track of golf players in your sportsbooks from SportsBettingSolutionAsia.com, you will notice how some players will no longer be playing for certain golf tournaments if they play in another. A few months ago, rumors started floating around that the PGA Tour will be banning players who will be joining the LIV Golf from their own tournaments.
PGA Tour and LIV Golf
Last week, 11 golfers from the LIV Golf filed an antitrust lawsuit challenging their PGA Tour suspensions. Three of those golfers, Talor Gooch, Matt Jones, and Hudson Swafford filed for temporary restraining orders to be able to compete in the FedEx St. Jude Championship in Memphis, Tennessee. However, the Court has denied the emergency request, and the three golfers are still ineligible to play for the PGA Tour. So if you are into sports betting, make sure you check the players for the FedEx Tournament.
You should keep track of the developments in both tours for your bookie solutions operation so that you can ensure that your betting lines are always accurate, especially with changes on rosters for major sports events. For the world of Golf, they seem to be split in half- those who will play for the PGA Tour, and those who will play for LIV, and LIV only.
