The three players who qualified for the FedEx Cup playoffs, Talor Gooch, Matt Jones and Hudson Swafford, were suspended by the PGA Tour for competing in a rival golf tournament.

They weren't able to participate in the playoffs because of that, but they are trying to get a judge to allow them to compete.

The injunction request is "legally baseless" and the PGA Tour asked a federal judge to deny the temporary restraining order that would have allowed them to play.

The players are trying to have their cake and eat it with this effort, according to the motion.

Despite knowing that they would be suspended for violating TOUR Regulations, they joined a golf league that paid them hundreds of millions of dollars in guaranteed money from Saudi Arabia's wealth fund. The TOUR's season-ending FedExCup Playoffs would be jeopardized if a mandatory injunction were to be issued by the court. The antitrust laws prevent people from having their cake and eating it as well.

Attorneys for the three golfers said in a lawsuit that a restraining order was needed to prevent the irreparable harm that would occur if they were not allowed to play in the FedEx Cup playoffs.

A temporary restraining order request will be considered on Tuesday.

The top 125 players in the FedEx Cup Playoffs will play in three events that will cut the field from 125 to 70 and then to 30. The winner of the TOUR Championship will take home an $18 million prize and a bonus pool of $75 million.

The golf players filed an antitrust lawsuit against the tour. The trio's attempt to get a temporary restraining order to allow them to play in the playoffs was part of the overall effort.

The golfer tried to use the TOUR platform to promote themselves and to freeride on your benefits and efforts, according to a memo from the commissioner.
