Captain of the international team Trevor Immelman He decided to comment on the absence Louis OosthuizenPreviously not part of the Presidents Cup due to its decision to join LIV Golf. “My understanding is that after he was released from the PGA Tour, he made separate announcements and allowed himself to be used in various marketing campaigns and advertisements, and he did all of that before resigning his membership.
So there were still special violations there. ” – Immelman recently responded to golfmonthly.com Oosthuizen was surprised by the decision; “I thought about resigning before I did anything wrong…
There is no rule that says you have to be a PGA Tour member to play the Presidents Cup, especially as an international team player.
Trevor Immelman explains.
Immelman emphasized that golfers know the consequences if they join LIV Golf.
Some seemed skeptical and didn’t believe it could come to that. Now LIV Golfers will be agonizing over their decision. “Every player I’ve talked to since the beginning of this process knows exactly what the situation is and what the outcome will be.”
They knew that if they made some decisions, it would be very doubtful that they would be able to represent the international team. It goes into their decision making process. All the cards are out on the table, and he knows where they all stand. “
Oosthuizen was eager to play alongside his captain and had only words of praise for Immelmann. “I feel so bad for Trev.” said Oosthuizen. “Trevor is a good friend, we text each other. He already knew my decision.
But still, it hurts. I wanted to play for him. He will be a great captain.”
