South Africa's Louis Oosthuizen is one of several LIV golfers featuring in this week's BMW International Open at Golfclub München Eichenried in Munich.

With the PGA Tour suspending all LIV Invitational Golf players, the DP World Tour has yet to make a statement on whether it will punish players who signed up for the Saudi-backed series.

But this week, 10 DP World Tour members, who played in the first event of the LIV Golf Invitational Series, teed off at the BMW International Open.

Oosthuizen, South Africa's Oliver Bekker, Sergio Garcia, Martin Kaymer, Pablo Larrazabal, Bernd Wiesberger, Laurie Canter, Wade Ormsby, Oliver Fisher and Adrian Otaegui are all in the field in Munich.

Oosthuizen is the highest-ranked golfer in this week's DP World Tour event, as he is 23rd on the World Golf Rankings and is a LIV Golf player.

Nine of the LIV Golf players are grouped together for the opening two rounds.

The first five DP World Tour members, not otherwise exempt, in the top 20 of the DP World Tour Rankings on completion of this week's tournament will earn a spot in next month's Open Championship at St Andrews.
