Europe’s DP World Tour on Friday banned players who took part in Saudi Arabia-backed LIV Golf’s inaugural event earlier this month from three upcoming tournaments and also fined them 100,000 pounds ($122,790.00) each.

“Every action anyone takes in life comes with a consequence and it is no different in professional sport, especially if a person chooses to break the rules. That is what has occurred here with several of our members,” DP World Tour chief executive Keith Pelley said in a statement.
