With the 2023 LIV Golf regular season drawing to a close in Jeddah last week, four players have found themselves in the unsavoury position of being relegated from the breakaway tour.

Ripper GC's Jediah Morgan, HyFlyers GC's James Piot, Smash GC's Chase Koepka and Iron Heads GC's Sihwan Kim are all set to be relegated, with Lee Westwood and Martin Kaymer filling the other two spots in the bottom six.

Due to contractual exemptions, both Kaymer and Westwood will remain with the tour, however, as they both captain their respective teams.

Kim finished dead last in the end-of-season standings, having failed to accumulate a single point in 13 starts. 

Kaymer finished one place above Kim, also scoring zero points during the season, having missed the first three events in the schedule. 

Both Chase Koepka and Piot managed to secure a single point each, with Morgan managing to do little better, having won only three.

Westwood accumulated seven points in his 12 starts, but the former world number one can sleep easy, thanks to the safety net afforded him by his captaincy of the Majesticks GC.

All four relegated players will be given the opportunity to earn the chance to reclaim their spot on the Saudi-backed league at a promotions tournament later this year. However, with only three spots up for grabs in the event, at least one of the aforementioned players will not be returning for the 2024 season.

At the other end of the table, Talor Gooch won the individual championship for 2023, and with that, he took home a whopping cheque worth $18 million.
