Paige Spiranac has slammed the LIV Golf players who filed an antitrust lawsuit against the PGA Tour.
Per a report by the Wall Street Journal's Louise Radnofsky, three of those in the lawsuit - Talor Gooch, Hudson Swafford and Matt Jones - are attempting to receive a temporary restraining order that would allow them to compete in the FedEx Cup Playoffs next week.
Phil Mickelson, Bryson DeChambeau and Ian Poulter were three of the 11 players to have filed a lawsuit against the PGA Tour.
The biggest bombshell from the court documents, which are 105 pages long, is that Mickelson was suspended by the PGA Tour back on March 22.
This was well before suspensions were dished out by the PGA Tour when LIV Golf players first teed it up in the inaugural LIV Golf Invitational London at Centurion Club in June.
Mickelson was allegedly "recruiting" players to the LIV Golf Invitational Series.
The players named in the lawsuit are:
- Phil Mickelson
- Bryson DeChambeau
- Abraham Ancer
- Hudson Swafford
- Matt Jones
- Carlos Ortiz
- Ian Poulter
- Talor Gooch
- Peter Uihlien
- Jason Kokrak
- Pat Perez
PGA Tour commissioner Jay Monahan has since issued a statement to PGA Tour members following the antitrust lawsuit from the LIV Golf players, which you can read in full here.

Social media sensation Spiranac, who has more Instagram followers than Tiger Woods, did not take kindly to hearing a number of LIV Golf players are now demanding more golf when they had made it clear recently that they rather fancied playing less golf on the LIV Golf Invitational Series.

"LIV players: We want to play less golf. Also LIV players: We are suing so we can play more golf," tweeted Spiranac.
