Scheffler hits out at LIV Golf players for suing PGA Tour over FedEx Cup suspensions
World number one Scottie Scheffler has hit out at a lawsuit being brought against the PGA Tour by several of LIV Golf's leading names.
With the PGA suspending players who joined the controversial Saudi Arabia-backed circuit, the likes of Phil Mickelson and Bryson DeChambeau are among 11 players to back a legal attempt to reverse those measures ahead of the FedEx Cup Playoffs beginning on Thursday.
While reports suggest only three LIV players – Talor Gooch, Matt Jones and Hudson Swafford – are seeking re-entry to the event, the PGA has accused them of trying "to have their cake and eat it" by attempting to feature at their events.
And Scheffler, who has been a prominent defender of the PGA Tour amid several high-profile players signing up for the LIV circuit, has little sympathy for those fighting suspension.
"I'm definitely curious to see what's going to happen," the 2022 Masters victor told a news conference on Tuesday.
"It's one of those deals where those guys kind of made their decision to go join another tour.
"They broke the rules and regulations of our tour and now they're trying to sue us, which is definitely a bit frustrating.
"I heard that was going to happen and I know some guys aren't surprised to see it, but I definitely am surprised to see some guys now suing us.
"If they win, come out here and play, I mean, that's something that's up to the courts. I can't control what's going to happen in a court case.
"[I'm] definitely interested, but at the end of the day it has no effect on my preparation for the week."
