          If you’re playing here on the PGA TOUR, playing in something that could be a rival series to the PGA Tour, being a member of our Tour, it’s definitely not something where we want our membership to do because it’s going to harm the tournament that we have opposite that and that’s, I’m sure that’s why they were, why they did not release the players,” said Scheffler.
          Because if we have 15 guys go over there and play, that hurts the RBC and the Canadian Open,” added Scheffler ahead of the first round of the AT&T Byron Nelson.
