Ian Poulter, Justin Harding and Adrian Otaegui will play in the Scottish Open after their DP World Tour suspensions have been temporarily lifted.

The DP World Tour issued a fine of £ 100,000 to members involved in the first LIV golf event at Centurion Club last month and also initially banned those players from playing the three co-sanctioned events with the PGA Tour.

These events are this week’s Genesis Scottish Open and Barbasol Championship, along with next week’s Barracuda Championship. However, a time out was granted in a Sport Resolutions (UK) audition which paved the way for Poulter, Harding and Otaegui to play at The Renaissance Club.

“I will simply say that we are disappointed with the outcome of today’s hearing, but we will stick to the decision,” said Keith Pelley, managing director of DP World Tour.

“It is important to remember, however, that this is only a suspension of the sanctions imposed, pending the hearing of the players’ appeal on the adequacy of these sanctions.

“The court composition for the Genesis Scottish Open will be informed in due course, but based on this decision the court size will increase beyond 156.

“We will make further comments on this in due course, but not during our time at Adare Manor [for the JP McManus Pro-Am]. “

Other players who were sent off missed the opportunity to appeal or were happy not to participate in the tournament.

Poulter, who was among players from both sides of the golf division competing in the JP McManus Pro-Am, spoke before the hearing decision was announced about his disappointment at being suspended from the DP World Tour.

I feel disappointed, I feel offended that of course I am suspended from playing golf on a tour that I have been a member of for 24 years, but I am told I cannot, so it is disappointing, “said Poulter. BBC Sport.

“I entered it as an individual because I want to play, so whether people want to get into the backend is up to them, but my correspondence is obviously fighting for my rights to play golf.”

Another Adare Manor participant was former Ryder Cup captain Padraig Harrington, who insisted there is room for the LIV tour to coexist with traditional circuits.

Harrington also downplayed hints of a serious rift between the LIV rebels and players who have chosen to remain affiliated with the PGA and DP World tours.

“Being here is kind of like Christmas dinner or Thanksgiving for your family,” Harrington said. “You know, you might have a brother sitting there and you might be – we’re going to Americanize that – you might be a Republican, they might be a Democrat, but you’re all friends at that particular moment and maybe politics isn’t mentioned at the dinner table.

“On an individual basis, this week is not a difficult situation here. We are all friends.
