While Westwood and Poulter joined LIV in time for its first tournament in England in June, Scott remains a PGA Tour player. In fact, he’s at Quail Hollow this week for his tenth Presidents Cup, a record for the International team.
Scott had a simple explanation for why he is still on the PGA Tour. It’s the major championships, one of which he has won, the 2013 Masters, and he wants more at 42 years old.
“What keeps me on the PGA Tour?” Because it’s the right fit for me to be on the PGA Tour; it’s really as simple as that,” Scott said Tuesday, ahead of the Presidents Cup’s start on Thursday. “One thing I don’t think I’ve fully realized is that I’m giving up my entire professional life of trying to achieve these things [major wins] here and just leaving it behind.” That is clearly not something I am prepared to do. I’m not sure if I’ll ever be ready to be clear. That appears to me to be a barrier.
Scott is No. 30 in the Official World Golf Ranking after finishing 15th in the 2022 Open Championship at St. Andrews before a pair of top-five finishes to start the FedEx Cup Playoffs. If he joins LIV, which has applied to be able to offer World Ranking points but has yet to do so, his ranking would most likely fall outside of the top 50 who qualify for the Open and the top 60 who qualify for the US Open. Open. The PGA Championship has its own eligibility criteria set by its organizer, the PGA of America, but it would complicate his chances of playing there as well. As a result, he would only be guaranteed to play in the Masters as a past champion.
Scott addressed this recently at the BMW PGA Championship, the DP World Tour’s flagship event at Wentworth.
“Like many other players, my feelings about LIV changed almost weekly, new information came out, ‘This is happening, that is happening,'” Scott told reporters at Wentworth. “At that same time, I felt like I was going to waste a season playing (in 2023) and trying to figure out what I should be doing and understanding it all.” I had to drop it and focus on finishing the season I started in America.
“Aside from the Masters, I have no major qualification guarantees for the years ahead.” I think I’m very level-headed about it all; I don’t really have a problem with what LIV Golf is doing, but it doesn’t fit Adam Scott right now. I’ve been concentrating on the majors for over 20 years.” -OKBet Sports News
