"Instead of spending our time, energy and financial resources and focusing on appeals, injunctions and proceedings, we encourage you to reconsider your recent penalties and sanctions. I read the letter, according to the telegram.

"Otherwise, you have no choice but to use a variety of other means and methods to correct these mistakes."

The US-based PGA Tour, which announced a 13-year partnership with the DP World Tour this week, has also stopped players to join the exit circuit.

The player said in a letter that the alliance would have a negative impact on DP World Tour players.

"Approximately 40 DP World Tour members who qualify for the Scottish Open on the DP World Tour will no longer qualify and will only have the option to participate and play on the Kentucky PGA Tour instead. A week before the opening, the entry fee was cheaper, but the entry fee was higher, "the letter read.

"The acquisition of the PGA Tour card by the top performers of the DP World Tour will only help to solidify the DP World Tour as the second fiddle of the PGA Tour, further enhancing the top rising talent of the DP World Tour. It will be depleted. "

The second LIV event took place Thursday at Pumpkin Ridge Golf Club in Portland, Oregon, where it faced the PGA Tour's John Dia Classic in person.
