LIV Golf League calendar starts to take shape

The 2023 LIV Golf League calendar is starting to take shape. Some of the already announced tournaments will be played on courses which, until 2022, hosted stages of the PGA Tour and the DP World Tour. The clash between the Arab Super League and the traditional circuits now also extends to Golf Clubs with a great tradition.

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. In March 2022, the CEO of LIV Golf, former professional golfer and former world number one Greg Norman, announced the schedule for the first season of the LIV Golf Invitational Series.

This consists of eight tournaments, to be played over a total of 54 holes without cut. Each tournament will have a field of 48 players, who will be grouped into 12 teams of four players, with simultaneous starts. The total amount of prizes to be distributed amounts to 255 million dollars.
