LIV Golf has recently taken the sport by storm, snapping up top PGA stars such as Phil Mickelson, Dustin Johnson, Bryson DeChambeau and most recently Brooks Koepka. Even after a suspension announced by the PGA, the United States Golf Association allowed LIV Golf players to play in last week’s US Open. This raised the question. What about the Open Championship 2022, which will be played in July? On Wednesday, the Royal and Ancient Golf Club in St. Andrews announced its decision on the matter, per ESPN. Here are the words of R&A CEO Martin Slumbers.

“The Open is golf’s original championship and since it was first played in 1860, the Open has been fundamental to its ethos and unique appeal,” said R&A CEO Martin Slumbers, in a press release. “Players who are exempted or who have earned a place by qualifying for the 150th Open in accordance with the entry requirements will be able to participate in the championship at St. Andrews.”

In short, LIV Golf players will be allowed to participate in the Open Championship in July. Slumbers said the British Open is golf’s “original championship” and that the “opening was fundamental to its ethos and unique appeal”.

It comes after the PGA revealed plans to revamp its own schedule, including events with bigger purses, smaller fields and no reductions. LIV Golf’s second event is set to take place on June 30 at Pumpkin Ridge Golf Club in Portland.

This should be a nice tune-up for the Open Championship for the PGA’s innate talent.
