LIV Golf chairman participating in DP World Tour event

LIV Golf chairman Yasir Al-Rumayyan is participating in this week’s DP World Tour event in Scotland.

Al-Rumayyan, 53, will compete in the pro-am portion of the Alfred Dunhill Links Championship at St. Andrew’s.

The participation of the governor of Saudia Arabia’s Public Investment Fund in a European tour event comes four months after the announcement of the planned merger between the PGA Tour, DP World Tour and the PIF.

“Sport is supposed to unite people, not divide people. We need to get peace,” Johann Rupert, chairman of Dunhill’s parent company Richemont, told The Scotsman.

“It was suggested to me a while ago that I should extend an invitation to (Al-Rumayyan), but I only got confirmation last week to say he would be playing,” Rupert said.

Al-Rumayyan will partner with Peter Uihlein, one of four LIV golfers entered in the event along with Talor Gooch, Louis Oosthuizen and Laurie Canter. They are playing on sponsor invitations.

Al-Rumayyan was originally entered into the event under the pseudonym Andrew Waterman, according to a report in The Scotsman.
