Sergio Garcia said on Sunday he is set to quit the European Tour amid the fallout over the Spaniard’s decision to join the controversial rebel series LIV Golf.
Garcia, who holds the record for the number of points won at Ryder Cups, would also be forfeiting his chance to participate in the biennial clash between Europe and the USA should he resign from the tour.
“The truth is I am quite sure about what I am going to do with the DP World Tour, I will probably leave it,” said Garcia after finishing the British Open on two-under-par on.
“I want to play where I am wanted. I like to feel loved and in the European Tour I don’t feel loved at the moment.” Garcia was just one of 24 players signed up to the LIV circuit to play in the 150th Open Championship in St Andrews this week.
