ST. ALBANS, England (AP) — Two-time major winner Dustin Johnson says he has resigned his PGA Tour membership to participate in the new golf series backed by Saudi Arabia’s sovereign wealth fund. The first LIV Golf Invitational, which offers $25 million in prize money, is taking place outside London starting Thursday.

Johnson is No. 15 in the world, the highest-ranked player in the field.
