The US Open event is the first since the suspension of players who participated in Saudi Arabia’s LIV tournament

CHICAGO (SCS) — Thursday’s US Open will be the first major since the PGA Tour suspended players who defected to the Saudi-backed LIV Tour which started last week.

But the PGA Tour doesn’t control who can and can’t play in golf’s four major tournaments. Phil Mickelson knows things will be different for LIV golfers reunited with players on the PGA TOUR.

The US Open is Mickelson’s first foray into a non-LIV event since January following controversial comments about Saudi Arabia and its new golf league. The PGA Tour has suspended any golfer who plays in a LIV event.

CBS 2’s Marshall Harris asked CBS Sports golf writer Kyle Porter if he thinks majors will do the same in the future.
