For the first time in the history of the Saudi League, teams will compete on the greens of the Golf Club of Houston in the first event of the second part of the season, following the mid-season transfer window, which ended with no changes.

However, ironically, immediately after the window closed, one team had to replace a player. Bryson DeChambeau, Captain of the Crushers GC, was forced to substitute Charles Howell III due to an injury.

This is therefore a temporary replacement.

DeChambeau has called up a high-level reserve, John Catlin. The American player, who competes on the Asian Tour, is currently in top form: he leads the Tour's Order of Merit and is second in the International Series, thanks to two consecutive victories in March and April, the Macau International Series and the Saudi Open presented by PIF.

The first issue was easily resolved. We are now awaiting the resolution of the second. Some players departed from Heathrow bound for Houston. Ian James Poulter, Lee Westwood, and Henrik Stenson, Captains of the Majesticks GC, and Tyrrell Hatton, a member of Captain Rahm's Legion XIII, have arrived in Texas, but their luggage, including their golf bags, did not.

This incident has understandably sparked the players' ire, which is thoroughly documented in a colorful video posted on the Majesticks GC and Poulter's Instagram profiles. However, I am confident that this issue will also be resolved.
