A counter suit files against LIV Golf by PGA Tour as the legal dispute progresses.
According to Doug Ferguson of The Associated Press, the PGA Tour filed a counter suit against the LIV Golf Invitational Series this week,
accusing the league of trying to persuade prominent golfers to break their contracts with the Tour by asserting that the Tour couldn't enforce them.
In response to the updated complaint filed by LIV Golf and others in northern California, the Tour filed the lawsuit on Wednesday.
The Tour claimed that LIV Golf, which had promised golfers hundreds of millions of dollars, wanted judges to declare its rules unconstitutional "with the stroke of a pen."
Phil Mickelson was one of the eleven golfers that joined LIV Golf to file a federal antitrust complaint against the Tour earlier this year.
Since then, however, all but three people have remained: Talor Gooch, Peter Uihlein, and Matt Jones.
By prohibiting players from participation in LIV Golf competitions and by unfairly suspending golfers after they left the Tour,
according to LIV Golf, the Tour acted in an anti competitive manner.This claim was labelled "fiction" by the Tour.
