Ian Poulter and Lee Westwood threaten legal action against DP World Tour

Ian Poulter and Lee Westwood are among a group of 16 players fined and banned from the Scottish Open who have threatened the DP World Tour with legal actions unless their sanctions are rescinded by Friday.

The punishments – £100,000 individual fines and bans from upcoming tournaments including the Scottish Open – were handed down by the DP World Tour, formerly the European Tour, last Friday as they formally moved to punish all players who have signed up for the Saudi rebel tour, which launched earlier this month. 

There is a Tour deadline by next Friday, July 8, that means the rebels can’t play until they have paid their fines, although LIV Golf’s response was to offer financial support to its players to cover any penalties or legal costs they may incur.

But the players involved have threatened legal action unless they are allowed to play in the Scottish Open, the first jointly-sanctioned tournament ever staged between the DP world Tour and PGA Tour, at the Renaissance Club in North Berwick next Thursday.

In an open letter the 16 players claim that the DP World Tour is being hypocritical for banning them while allowing others to feature in events outside their tour, claiming the penalties levelled against them are “grossly unfair and likely unlawful”.

They also question the 13-year partnership that was announced this week between the PGA Tour and the DP World Tour, asking why the latter appears to be accepting that it will play second fiddle to its American big brother.

A letter, which was signed by 16 of this week’s LIV Golf Invitational competitors in Portland, who will be fined for playing in the event, and sent to the DP World Tour chief executive Keith Pelley and other board members, called for negotiations to align the rebel
