Less than a week remains until the start of LIV Golf Promotions, the first Q-School of the Saudi League. Golf enthusiasts will have to prepare to watch 73 young people compete on the course of the Abu Dhabi Golf Club from 8 to 10 December, to win one of the three remaining open places in the LIV Golf Teams for the 2024 season.
The qualification is divided into two levels. On the first day, around sixty players belonging to Category A, an entry list more open to amateurs and young professionals, will take to the field. The top 20, also considering ties, will move on to the second day, where they will join the Category B players, whose entry list also includes the recent winners of the Majors.
The top 20 classified (without equal merit, who will possibly be eliminated through a playoff), after a new reset of the ranking, will play 36 holes, all on the last day of competition, to win one of the three places still available in the LIV Teams Golf, left empty after the first player transfer window closes.
Players who place fourth to tenth will receive a full mini card to participate in all tournaments of the 2024 International Series. An exciting challenge awaits players and golf enthusiasts waiting to find out who will join the LIV Golf Teams for next season.
Scrolling through the list of participants at the starting tee on Friday, you notice famous names such as Victor Dubuisson, Gonzalo Fernandez-Castano, Alvaro Quiros, Jeff Overton and Kyle Stanley. Even more surprising, Saturday's list includes a major winner, 2013 PGA Champion Jason Dufner.
But why do players from the DP World Tour and PGA Tour participate in an LIV event? There are two reasons. For the PGA Tour, this qualifying tournament is not part of the "unauthorized tournaments". Meanwhile, the DP World Tour has determined that a player's participation in the LIV Golf Promotions event is dependent on a prior request for authorization being addressed directly to Keith Pelley.
The substantial prize pool of $1,500,000 guarantees an equal distribution of winnings, with the winner walking away with $200,000 but even those who don't make the cut at the end of the first day will still secure a sum of $5,000.
Registered amateurs, however, will be guaranteed a participation prize of $1,000 regardless of the result in the final ranking. For those who intend to follow the tournament at the same time as the Alfred Dunhill Championship and the Grant Thornton Invitational, it will be possible to do so easily via the LIV Golf YouTube channel or via the LIV Golf + application.
In this way, you will be able to enjoy the emotion of the event from the comfort of your own home. LIV Golf offers the possibility of following the best competitions of the PGA and DP World Tour with the highest video and audio quality.
