Bernd Wiesberger Reinstated on DP World Tour After Losing LIV Golf Contract

Bernd Wiesberger has been reinstated on the DP World Tour, making him one of the first golfers from the LIV Golf League to do so.

Wiesberger, an eight-time DP World Tour winner, joined the breakaway circuit in 2022 and lost his contract for 2024 due to a poor season this year. He then applied for membership back to the DP World Tour, which was accepted.

The statement explained that Wiesberger’s membership was terminated after failing to meet the Tour’s minimum counting event regulation for the 2023 season. However, he expressed his desire to play a full DP World Tour schedule in 2024 and has fulfilled all sanctions imposed for breaches in 2022 and 2023.

DP World Tour Chief Executive Keith Pelley granted Wiesberger’s request for reinstatement in accordance with the procedure set out in the Members’ Regulations.

Wiesberger clarified on X, formerly known as Twitter, that he never resigned his membership to the DP World Tour. The Telegraph reported that LIV Golf paid a 1.5 million Euro fine for Wiesberger to be fully reinstated in January.

During his time with LIV, Wiesberger played for captain Martin Kaymer and Cleeks GC.
