European Ryder Cup legend Lee Westwood has made fun of the DP World Tour today announcing new member opportunities for PGA Tour members in its 2024 season. 

The big update on October 23 confirmed all PGA Tour members ranking 126th to 200th in the 2022-23 FedEx Cup standings will receive full status on the DP World Tour in 2024. 

The PGA Tour's FedEx Cup has just three more counting events at the WWT Championship, Butterfield Bermuda Championship and RSM Classic before the positions are finalised next month. 


The DP World Tour had already confirmed earlier in the season that the top 10 players without PGA Tour cards this season would receive cards to play on the PGA Tour in '24. 

While many will consider the move benefits the DP World Tour by taking in some serious PGA Tour talent, others such as the popular Flushing It account believe it will have a detrimental effect on the ex European Tour.

Flushing It tweeted: 

"So effectively they're going to take all the players who weren't good enough to keep their cards in the US and in return, send their best 10 players back as a thank you. That sounds a lot like a feeder tour to me. Just change the name to 'Korn Ferry Tour Europe' and be done with it."

LIV Golf star Westwood, a winner of 25 titles on the DP World Tour, replied:

"Pathway, get it right!"

Flushing It then hit out at Eddie Pepperell, who admitted to watching the LIV Golf Team Championship and "cringing" all the way through the final day's action. 


Flushing It replied: "I’ll tell you what’s cringe, Eddie, the mess that’s happening to the European Tour while you’re wasting your energy criticising LIV. As a lad who was inspired by watching the greats of the game play in Europe, I thought you might have more to say on the issue."
