LIV Golf, the new mega-purse professional circuit backed by Saudi Arabia’s Public Investment Fund, would be banned from New Jersey clubs under a bill introduced by two Democratic state lawmakers. 

The legislation, sponsored by Senators Andrew Zwicker and Richard Codey, would prohibit contests by all sports organizations “operated primarily through use of monies received from sovereign wealth funds,” according to a news release.
