Sergio Garcia is set to slide out of the top 100 in the Official World Golf Ranking for the first time in 23 years.
Such a victory would see him jump more than 1,000 spots in the rankings.
Now it has been confirmed that LIV Golf's Garcia - currently the World No.99 - is guaranteed to drop outside the top 100 because he is not playing in any event this week.
Garcia could have teed it up at the Australian PGA Championship that is co-sanctioned by the DP World Tour.
He first broke into the top 100 at the tender age of 19 in 1999 and has been a mainstay ever since.
The Spaniard, 42, has never been the World No.1.
To date his biggest victories include the 2017 Masters and the 2008 Players Championship.
Garcia is Europe's all-time leading points scorer in the Ryder Cup but his decision to join the breakaway tour has left him in extremely poor standing with DP World Tour bosses.
He will not be in Luke Donald's side next September in Italy.
He has been particularly vocal about the alleged poor treatment by the DP World Tour.
Garcia also denied being guilty of an expletive-laden rant when he was previously fined and suspended for playing in LIV's first event at Centurion Club.
Garcia previously turned heads in August when he said his LIV Golf contract was "kinda my reward" for a long career.
In 2023 Garcia will once again captain the Fireballs GC side.
There will be 14 events globally with as many as 60 players involved in the $405m season.
