LETAS: Season over LIV Golf is a professional golf tour.

It was founded in 2022 with the support of the Public Investment Fund, Saudi Arabia's sovereign wealth fund. The golf tour competes with the PGA Tour (USA) and the DP World Tour (Europe) and offers significantly higher prize money.

The name LIV refers to the total number of holes to be played at each tournament (54 in Roman numerals, equivalent 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 achieved by making birdie on every hole on a par-72 course.

The advent of the 2022 LIV Tour was met with criticism from the PGA Tour and DP World Tour, and players who enrolled on the LIV Tour were banned from the PGA Tour and DP World Tour. In early June 2023, the conflict over prize money and playing rights was seemingly resolved when a merger of the LIV Tour with the PGA Tour and the DP World Tour was announced.
