Sergio Garcia extinguishes Ryder Cup 2023 hopes After Sergio Garcia made the jump to the Saudi-backed LIV Golf Series in 2022,

it has now been revealed that Europe's top Ryder Cup points scorer is unlikely to feature in the 2023 event at Marco Simone Golf & Country Club.

The news comes after Garcia, who has played every LIV golf tournament, missed Friday's deadline to enter the Mallorca Open,

which is played on the DP World Tour. To qualify for the Ryder Cup, the 42-year-old must hit a minimum of four events,

including one in his home country, to retain his membership. However, with the last LIV Golf tournament in Doral clashing with the Mallorca Open,

Garcia did not meet the minimum entry requirement. First reported that Garcia missed the deadline,

it will be only the second Ryder Cup he has missed since 1999, with 28.5 points the leading scorer in Europe.

It's also worth noting that Garcia may not be the only LIV player to miss out on the Ryder Cup, with a court date set for February to determine.
