Phil Mickelson and other top players are withdrawing from an antitrust lawsuit against the PGA Tour Inc. over their suspension for participating in Saudi Arabia-backed LIV Golf events.

Mickelson filed a voluntary dismissal in federal court in California on Tuesday. He had previously said that he was considering withdrawing from the case because LIV is now suing the PGA itself. In a separate filing on Tuesday, Talor Gooch, Hudson Swafford and Ian Poulter also withdrew.
