Eight players have asked permission to play in The Saudi International scheduled for February 3-6 at Royal Greens Golf and Country Club in King Abdullah Economic City. One possible reason for this is the money prize as The Saudis had promised gaudy paychecks for the biggest names in golf, reportedly $30 million in some cases. On the contrary, PGA Tour commissioner Jay Monahan then made it clear that any player who joins a rival league could face a lifetime ban from the PGA Tour. Currently at #3, Dustin Johnson is one of those 8 players who have requested permission from the Tour to play in the Saudi International.
