Kevin Na resigns from PGA Tour, will participate in LIV Golf series

Kevin Na, a five-time winner on the PGA Tour, announced on Saturday that he has resigned from the tour, doing so rather than face potential discipline and/or legal action for playing in the rival LIV Golf Invitational Series.

Na, who is ranked 33rd in the world, announced his resignation on social media. Na is believed to be the first player to resign from the PGA Tour because of the tour's position on players competing in the rival series.

Na, a 19-year veteran of the PGA Tour, said he wanted the "freedom to play wherever I want and exercising my right as a free agent gives me that opportunity.
