LIV Golf is currently perambulating the capital of the United States with its seventh event of the season. As Harold Varner III registered his name as the victor, the league is halfway through its 14-event season. This has set the talks regarding the relegation again in motion. When LIV Golf stepped into 2023, it had already established that the league would go under some restructuring.

This included the addition of qualifying and relegation criteria, as the league will head into its 2024 season. In fact, the officials referred to the qualifying format as ‘The LIV Golf Promotions Event’. The event is most likely to take place in the month of November. With all this information surrounding the Saudi-backed league, a recent update has surfaced on Twitter. According to the update, while Brooks Koepka might enjoy a privilege because of his status in LIV Golf, he is likely to suffer from personal disappointment.

The 2023 season of LIV Golf brought with it certain revisions to the existing format. This revision consisted of the relegation policy as well. The LIV Golf relegation implies that the golfers who take the last four berths on the LIV leaderboard by the end of this year’s season would most likely lose their LIV Golf tour card.

However, the top 24 players will be exempted from any such policy. According to the tweet by Flushing It, “All players except captains are eligible for relegation.” Although it is officially to be confirmed next week. This indicates that apart from Phil Mickelson, Brooks Koepka, Kevin Na, Bryson DeChambeau, Louis Oosthuizen, Joaquin Niemann, Dustin Johnson, Cameron Smith, Sergio Garcia, Martin Kaymer, Bubba Watson, Ian Poulter, and Henrik Stenson, no other player is exempted from the relegation threat. Sadly, this doesn’t make Brooks a happy camper. But why?

The reason is that even though the 5-time major champion is likely to be safe from any relegation battle, his younger brother Chase Koepka isn’t. Flushing It continued the tweet by mentioning the players who are probably in danger of losing their league status. It said, “The 4 players currently in danger of automatically losing status are Sihwan Kim, James Piot, Chase Koepka and David Puig. With Bernd Weisberger, Jed Morgan, Abe Ancer and Richard Bland all flirting with danger too.

Earlier this year, Golf Digest mentioned the reason behind the restructuring of the league. According to the magazine, “The LIV Golf Promotions Event will ensure there is an open player pathway for golfers from across the ecosystem to gain exemption into the LIV Golf League.” Furthermore, the qualifying event would probably be a 72-hole event rather than the regular LIV 54-hole event.

The only comfort for the players like Chase Koepka who might face relegation is that they will get to regain their LIV status through this promotional event. The only hurdle would be the level of competition at the qualifying tournament. After all, it is open to some of the world’s best golfers, even outside the LIV Golf League.

Amidst the huge risk of Chase Koepka’s relegation, brother Brooks involved in a $2 billion rumor

It is really unfortunate that one sibling of the Koepka clan is untouched by the relegation rules while the other dangles on the edge of it. However, it is a part of the game and not much can be done about it. Moreover, the season isn’t over yet. That means Chase Koepka still has a chance to climb on the leaderboard to a better and safer position.

While all this has been going around in LIV Golf, other interesting information has also made itself known. According to a popular Twitter account by the name LIV Golf Enthusiast, it appears that the popular brand Nike is probably interested in Brooks’ Smash GC.
