Withdrawing from LIV golf suit against PGA, Phil Mickelson

In response to their ban for competing in LIV Golf tournaments sponsored by Saudi Arabia, Phil Mickelson and other elite athletes have decided to drop their antitrust complaint 

On Tuesday, Mickelson voluntarily dismissed his case in a California federal court. Because LIV is now suing the PGA directly, he had earlier declared that he was thinking of dropping the action. 

The PGA was referred to as a "entrenched monopolist with a vice grip on professional golf" in the lawsuit originally filed by 11 players on August 3. 

 It was also claimed that the suspension of LIV players "serves no purpose other than to cause harm to players"

Later in August, LIV joined the players' lawsuit. Human rights advocates have harshly denounced the Saudi-sponsored golf tour as an effort to "sportswash"

the Kingdom's reputation in the aftermath of the murder of writer Jamal Khashoggi and its military operation in Yemen.
