The second event of the Saudi Super League ended, the first to be played on American soil. Victory smiled again to a South African.
After Charl Schwartzel, it was Branden Grace's turn. In addition to the $ 4,000,000 first place prize, Grace also grossed $ 375,000 for second place on the team.
The Stinger GC, led by Louis Oosthuizen, of which he is a member, finished behind Dustin Johnson's 4 Aces GCs. The third event will be held at the end of the month at Trump National Golf Club Bedminster in New Jersey.
We will see if the field of participants will change (it was news yesterday that Paul Casey joined the LIV Golf). As on the occasion of the inaugural event at the Centurion Club, also in this case the images of the tournament were broadcast for free on the YouTube channel and on the LIV Golf website, given that currently the television rights have not yet been assigned.
Obviously, since this is, as we said, the first tournament played in the USA, the comments of golf enthusiasts have multiplied on the social channels. Let's see some of them appearing on Twitter, in response to tweets from @LIVGolfinv and @BrandenGrace.
@mkesportgeek: "It was an exceptional round of golf. Great golf. " @KevinKeo: "I think they have organized something really exciting that will bring about a change in golf" "There is the individual and team ranking ...
it's fantastic" @DisturbancePod: "Of course, there is a lot of negativity around a new League that manifests itself as a nuisance" "But without disturbances there is no change" @ christom1959 (on Grace's victory): "For the first time in years we hear about it" "They know they can't win on the PGA Tour ...
people no one will miss." @Mattwillgo: "54 holes without cutting" “He just won a very important participation trophy”. @DanielMcquilken: "Congratulations" “A billion times more fun than watching the PGATour and its television coverage. I really enjoyed it ”. Basically, two fairly clear currents of thought, as was imaginable.
