LIV Golf stars have scored a significant victory in their rebellion against the PGA Tour.

LIV Golf players will be eligible to compete in all four major tournaments this season after the PGA of America issued its 2023 eligibility requirements Wednesday, providing a green light.

LIV stars Phil Mickelson, Brooks Koepka, and Martin Kaymer won the PGA Championship before defecting to the Saudi-backed golf tour.

The PGA Championship was the last holdout among the four majors. The latest in the seesaw battle between the dueling golf tours.

The PGA Tour keeps racking up wins over LIV Golf.

Despite previous signals that LIV defectors would be banned from participation in 2023, the PGA of America said they could tee it up at Oak Hill Country Club in Rochester, New York, from May 18-21.

“Sadly, the current division in the professional game is not good for the sport or the future of the game. We hope there might be some resolution soon,” said PGA of America chief executive officer Seth Waugh.

The PGA of America’s decision came only one day after the Royal & Ancient Golf Club of St. Andrews said LIV players were cleared to play in the 151st Open Championship at Royal Liverpool from July 20-23.

Augusta National Golf Club and the USGA previously said LIV golfers would be eligible for the 2023 Masters and U.S. Open.
