Thomas Pieters and 4 others at the LIV Golf

The number of golfers who will play on LIV Golf is expanding and, consequently, a place is freed up for the European Ryder Cup team. Among the three professionals expected soon on the Arab SuperLega there is in fact Thomas Pieters, today number 34 in the world.

The Belgian is expected to make his LIV Golf debut as early as next week in Mexico at the first round of the PGA and DP World Tour competitor circuit. The 31-year-old has won six titles in his career, including the 2021 Portugal Masters and the Abu Dhabi HSBC Championship 2002.

Played the 2016 Ryder Cup and finished 16th in the competition at the Tokyo Olympics. He was among the protagonists of the victory of Continental Europe at the recent Hero Cup. If things don't change, Pieters would be ousted from the two circuits and would fall in the world ranking (those who play on LIV Golf do not accrue points for the ranking).

Pieters is ready to join the Chilean Mito Pereira and the Colombian Sebastian Munoz, the latest signings of Greg Norman - who failed, however, the assault on big names such as Patrick Cantlay and Xander Schauffele - for the new season of LIV Golf.

However, the list is destined to grow longer. From the United States they certainly give the passage with the Arabs of Danny Lee and Brendan Steele. The former is 39 years old and has three victories on the PGA Tour. Steele, on the other hand, has already earned $20 million in nearly three hundred professional races in his career.

The PGA Tour is an organization that curates major professional golf tours in the United States. It is based in Ponte Vedra Beach, a suburb of Jacksonville, Florida. Its official name is written in all capital letters, i.e. "PGA TOUR".

The PGA Tour became its own organization in 1968, when it split from the PGA of America, which is now primarily an association of golf professionals, such as instructors and club managers. Tournament players first formed their own organization, the Association of Professional Golfers (APG).

Later, in 1968, the players abolished the APG and agreed to operate as the PGA "Tournament Players Division", a fully autonomous division of the PGA, overseen by a new 10-member Tournament Policy Board. The name then officially changed to "PGA Tour" in 1975..
