Ian Poulter, Justin Harding and Adrian Otaegui are set to play at the Scottish Open after their DP World Tour suspensions were temporarily lifted.

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

Those events are this week’s Genesis Scottish Open and Barbasol Championship, along with next week’s Barracuda Championship. However, a stay was granted at an appeals hearing which has cleared the way for Poulter, Harding and Otaegui to play at The Renaissance Club.

“I will simply say we are disappointed by the outcome of today’s hearing, but will abide by the decision,” Keith Pelley, DP World Tour chief executive, said.

“It is important to remember, however, this is only a stay of the sanctions imposed, pending the hearing of the players’ appeal as to whether those sanctions were appropriate.

“The make-up of the field for the Genesis Scottish Open will be advised in due course, but based on this decision the field size will increase beyond 156.

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

Other players who were banned have either missed the chance to appeal or were happy not to play in the tournament.
