Rory McIlroy and Tiger Woods: appear to snub Tyrrell Hatton after star’s £50m LIV Golf move

Tyrrell Hatton’s move to LIV Golf saw him banned from the PGA Tour, and it appears the Englishman will be unable to compete in Rory McIlroy and Tiger Woods’ TGL too.

It has of course come with consequence, with Hatton forced to give up his PGA Tour eligibility having joined the circuit’s Saudi rivals. And it appears it has also cost him a place on Rory McIlroy and Tiger Woods’ TGL roster too.

Hatton was one of a number of PGA Tour stars signed by the innovative golf league founded by McIlroy and Woods. In joining LIV though, all traces of the Englishman’s involvement with TGL have been removed, with his name and profile wiped from the league’s website.

Hatton’s defection comes with added issues for McIlroy too, having originally included his Ryder Cup teammate on his Boston Common team alongside Adam Scott and Keegan Bradley for the inaugural TGL season. The simulator-based league was initially set to begin last month, but damage to their Florida-based stadium ensured this was delayed.

TGL bosses later confirmed that their maiden campaign would now begin 12 months later, starting in January 2025. It will now go ahead without the inclusion of Hatton though following his career switch. He is of course not the only former TGL star to make the LIV switch.
