Judge rules against three LIV golfers

- Wire reports

A federal judge in San Jose ruled Tuesday that three golfers who joined Saudi-backed LIV Golf will not be able to compete in the PGA Tour’s postseason.

U.S. District Court Judge Beth Labson Freeman said she didn’t consider the golfers faced irreparabl­e harm because of the big money they were guaranteed by joining LIV, a key issue in the case.

“There simply is no irreparabl­e harm in this case,” PGA Tour attorney Elliot Peters said.

The three suspended golfers were seeking a temporary restrainin­g order, which Freeman denied. Talor Gooch, Matt Jones and Hudson Swafford claimed they should be able to play where they want to.
