The FedEx Cup playoffs will be without three of its qualifiers next week; The PGA Tour does not allow them to participate in LIV golf.

Talor Gooch, Matt Jones and Hudson Swafford have been told they will not be allowed in next week’s first playoff event, the FedEx St. Jude Championship, at TPC Southwind.

All three golfers sought a temporary restraining order from playing the event, arguing that they qualified before taking off for LIV.

PGA Tour Commissioner Jay Monahan issued a memo in June saying anyone participating in LIV Golf is ineligible to compete in Tour-sponsored events and the Presidents Cup.

The top 125 players in the standings are eligible for the first playoff event. Gooch, though he hasn’t played in a PGA event since the Charles Schwab Challenge in May, is still tied for 20th. Jones and Swafford are 62nd and 63rd, respectively.

Gooch had four top 10 finishes and a dozen top 25s before going on tour with Greg Norman.
