Beginning next year, the top 10 players on the DP World Tour standings at the end of each season will earn PGA TOUR cards, the TOUR announced in a statement Tuesday.

The agreement is part of a 13-year "operational joint venture partnership" between the PGA TOUR and DP World Tour, strengthening their existing alliance that was announced in November 2020.

There will also be an increase in the PGA TOUR's existing stake in the European Tour Productions from 15% to 40% and an increase in annual prize funds for DP World Tour members over the next five years.

In addition, the Sunshine Tour and PGA Tour of Australasia will now have a formal pathway to the DP World Tour.

The news comes after some PGA TOUR and DP World Tour players joined Greg Norman's Saudi-backed LIV Golf series.

Earlier this month, PGA TOUR commissioner Jay Monahan suspended players taking part in current and future LIV Golf events.
