‘Those guys made their bed, so leave us alone’: Billy Horschel accuses the Saudi-backed LIV Golf defectors of being ‘hypocrites and LIARS’ and tells them to stay away from PGA Tour and DP World Tour
- Billy Horschel has made an impassioned defence of PGA Tour and DP World Tour

- The world No 15 insists he harbours no ill will towards the defectors
Billy Horschel has accused golf’s Saudi rebels of being ‘hypocrites and liars’ and urged them to stay away from the established tours.
Horschel made an impassioned defence of the PGA Tour and DP World Tour ahead of the Genesis Scottish Open, which will feature a number of players from LIV Golf after their suspensions were temporarily stayed on appeal.
Following a hearing before Sport Resolutions on Monday, bans imposed on Ian Poulter, Adrian Otaegui and Justin Harding were lifted and they were added to the field at Renaissance Club, with more set to follow.

But while Horschel insisted he harbours no ill will towards such players, the world No 15 made his feelings on the divisive topic abundantly clear.
‘I believe they made their bed,’ said the American.
‘They decided to go play on that tour and they should go play there. They shouldn’t be coming back over to the DP World Tour or the PGA Tour.

‘To say that they wanted to also support this tour, whether the DP or PGA Tour, while playing the LIV tour, is completely asinine. Those guys made their bed. They say that’s what they want to do, so leave us alone.
‘They keep talking about how the PGA Tour doesn’t listen. I’ve been really frustrated by it because there’s a lot of guys that are hypocrites, that aren’t telling the truth and are lying.
‘I just can’t stand to sit here any more and be diplomatic about it.’
