LIV Golf filed its application for world ranking points a month after it played its first event, and none was awarded for the inaugural season as the Official World Golf Ranking considers it.
The effect of not earning ranking points — except for two majors and a few European tour events — is becoming clear with each week.
CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) — Jordan Spieth capped off a perfect week at the Presidents Cup and the Americans made it nine straight victories against an International team depleted by defections to Saudi-funded LIV Golf.
CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) — FOURBALLS
Si Woo Kim and Tom Kim, International, def. Patrick Cantlay and Xander Schauffele, United States, 1 up.

THE SESSION: The Americans won the fourballs session 4-1, with the International team failing to win a single match (two ties).
CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) — Max Homa never felt more energized over a big putt on a Friday, perhaps because he never had so many people who shared in the celebration.
This is why making the Presidents Cup was the top of his wish list this year, and his latest afternoon heroics at Quail Hollow exceeded expectations.
CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) — American red numbers filled the electronic scoreboards Thursday in the Presidents Cup, an outcome that surprised no one for these one-sided matches.
“Somebody came on the radio and said, ‘Yeah, but we’re 1 up in three matches and those can flip real quick,'" U.S.
CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) — Patrick Cantlay and Xander Schauffele, United States, def. Adam Scott and Hideki Matsuyama, International, 6 and 5.

CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) — A capsule look at the International team for the Presidents Cup, which starts Thursday at Quail Hollow Club:
WILMINGTON, Del. (AP) — Adam Scott felt he was playing well enough that he should start seeing some better scores at some point. That moment appears to have arrived at just the right time.
Scott put together another tidy round Friday except for one hole — a double bogey on the 17th — for a 2-under 69 that gave him a one-shot lead going into the weekend at the BMW Championship.
BROOKLINE, Mass. (AP) — The Latest on the U.S. Open (all times local):
HILTON HEAD ISLAND, S.C. (AP) — Cameron Young showed it doesn't always take years of practice to go low at Harbour Town Golf Links, shooting an 8-under 63 on Thursday to take the first-round lead in his RBC Heritage debut.
AUSTIN, Texas (AP) — Scottie Scheffler reached the championship round at the Dell Technologies Match Play for the second straight year, this time with a lot more at stake.
A year ago, he was trying for his first PGA Tour victory.
AUSTIN, Texas (AP) — The odds were not in Kevin Kisner's favor.
For starters, no one had ever won in the Dell Technologies Match Play when 3 down with four holes to play at Austin Country Club.
AUSTIN, Texas (AP) — The Latest on the Dell Technologies Match Play (all times local):
AUSTIN, Texas (AP) — Golf's most fickle tournament delivered its usual dose of oddities Wednesday in the Dell Technologies Match Play, including the fortunes of Maverick McNealy.
The last man to get in the 64-man field, he was the first to close out his match.
NAPLES, Fla. (AP) — Marc Leishman holed out for eagle for the second straight day as he and Jason Day posted an 8-under 64 in the modified alternate shot format Saturday to build a three-shot lead in the QBE Shootout.

ST. SIMONS ISLAND, Ga. (AP) — Sebastian Munoz saw the tough weather conditions on the way to the RSM Classic and figured all he could do was keep his head down and make birdies. He wound up with a 10-under 60 to shatter his career round by six shots.
KIAWAH ISLAND, S.C. (AP) — A brief look at Friday's second round of the PGA Championship at Kiawah Island (all times EDT):
LEADING: Phil Mickelson and Louis Oosthuizen at 5-under 139. Mickelson shot a 3-under 69 in the morning and Oosthuizen had a 68 in the afternoon.
Opening Day at the PGA Championship essentially wound up a draw.
Good shots were rewarded, bad ones predictably punished and the Ocean Course -- reliably backed up by stiff breezes off the Atlantic -- came out of it looking like anything but a pushover.
KIAWAH ISLAND, S.C. (AP) — Amid the wind and the havoc at Kiawah Island, there was a semblance of simplicity to the way Corey Conners navigated his way around the Ocean Course for a 5-under 67 and a two-shot lead Thursday in the PGA Championship.
AUGUSTA, Ga. (AP) — The roars returned to Masters. At least two of them.
There were enough spectators, believed to be roughly 8,000 a day, to at least bring some sound back to the gorgeous scenery of Augusta National in April...
ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) — Lee Westwood isn't just killing time waiting to become old enough to compete against guys his own age...
ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) — Corey Conners spent more time grinding out pars than chasing birdies, and that proved to be the right recipe Friday at the Arnold Palmer Invitational as Bay Hill began to bake under a warm sun...
Palm Harbor, Fla. — Corey Conners knew Tiger Woods had finished his second round at Innisbrook because he couldn't see him.
He was only about 50 yards from the ninth green, but there were too many fans covering every inch of grass, packed in a dozen deep because of Woods.
