DP World Tour players want LIV Golf stars to face ‘very strong sanctions’, reveals Padraig Harrington


“I haven’t talked to the powers that be. I’m sure the next couple of weeks at the Irish Open, Scottish Open, that they will come to me and get a feeling for what I think. Hopefully between us all we’ll come up with the right solution.

“There does seem to be two sides to it – the players who have gone and especially the players who have an option to go who haven’t. The fear of missing out means that they want very strong sanctions.

“Somebody who could go doesn’t go, you can understand them thinking: ‘God, should I have gone?’ We’re hearing players turning down huge sums of money. We’re talking about the type of Ryder Cup player who’s turned down the $30 million plus figures.

“It’s very impressive that at the moment it seems like the players who are staying are the ones who are feeling like their careers are going on an upward spiral. Fair play to them for turning it down and backing their careers. I’m certainly impressed.”
