With significant financial incentives for its players, LIV Golf aspires to organize a circuit that rivals the US-based tour.
After weeks of rumors and suspicion, the PGA Tour stepped forward in mid-May by denying permission for players on its tour to compete in the LIV Golf Invitational Series in London, the first event of LIV Golf.
This led to disciplinary measures and golfers such as the Spanish Sergio García, Dustin Johnson, Phil Mickelson, Ian Poulter, Lee Westwood, Brooks Koepka, the Mexican Abraham Ancer or Louis Oosthuizen, among others, abandoned the PGA Tour on their way to LIV Golf.
On November 30, the LIV added the fields El Camaleón from Mexico, Valderrama from Spain and Sentosa from Singapore to its 2023 calendar.
LIV Golf, also known as the Super Golf League, is a professional golf circuit. It was founded in 2022, with the sponsorship of the Public Investment Fund (it is the sovereign wealth fund of Saudi Arabia) 1. The circuit rivals the PGA Tour (United States) and the DP World Tour (Europe), offering substantially higher prize money.
The name LIV refers to the total number of holes to be played in each event (54 in Roman numerals, corresponding to 3 rounds of 18 holes), as opposed to the usual 72 holes (4 rounds of 18 holes) on other tours. Alternatively, 54 is the score obtained by scoring a birdie on every hole on a par 72.2 round.
