Former LIV Golf pro Justin Harding has revealed frustration at being handed just 15 starts on the DP World Tour in order to keep his card in 2024.
Harding, 37, competed in the first three LIV Golf tournaments during their inaugural 2022 season and performed admirably with a T10 (London), T8 (Portland), T19 (Bedminster).
But without a LIV Golf contract to his name, Harding was one of the unlucky players that was booted out of the 48-man league backed by Saudi billions.
The South African then returned to the DP World Tour to play in a couple of events before being ruled out of the season due to a hip injury.
Harding, who has two wins to his name on the DP World Tour at the 2019 Qatar Masters and 2021 Kenya Open, came back to competition only to play in five events during the 2023 DP World Tour season, which was once again blighted by a hip injury.
Now back ready to play again, Harding took to X this afternoon to express frustration at his latest DP World Tour status that will see him able to play in just 15 tournaments on the roster this season.
Harding also confirmed he is not allowed to compete in Asian Tour events in 2024 without permission from the DP World Tour.
Wiesberger, who has eight wins on the DP World Tour, will be exempt for DP World Tour events under category 11 for the 2024 season, which got underway at the Joburg Open earlier today.
In a lengthy note, Harding tweeted:
Nine-time DP World Tour winner Pablo Larrazabal urged Harding to go and get himself a third DP World Tour win in 2024.
"As talented as you are, go get a win in your first few events you play and come back to the place you deserve," tweeted Larrazabal, who won twice on the DP World Tour in 2023.
