Dustin Johnson Forfeits Ryder Cup Eligibilty With Move to LIV Golf

Dustin Johnson has formally resigned from his PGA Tour membership, 

And he said Tuesday that he only plans to play in LIV golf events and major championships. 

Johnson, who has been a member of the Tour since 2008, 

presented information at a press conference on Tuesday ahead of the first tournament of LIV golf at Centurion Golf Club. 

His choice follows comparable ones made through Kevin Na, Sergio Garcia, Brandon Grace and Charl Schwartzell, 

All of which will have to face implications for this move. 

Johnson and others could face the highest penalty, 

That is ineligibility for future Ryder Cups. Players are required to be individuals from the PGA of America for group selection, 

and PGA Tour participants are given computerized membership in the PGA of America. 

Johnson, who has made 5 Ryder Cup appearances for Team USA, 

defined that he has resigned his PGA Tour card. 

Weighed out eligibility for the prestigious group tournament before making the final choice.
