The very first event of the LIV Golf Series took place in Mexico, on Mayakoba’s El Camaleón Golf Course, in February. This was followed by tournaments in Tuscon, Arizona in mid-March and Winter Garden, Florida at the end of the same month. 

Fronted by former professional golfer, Greg Norman is the CEO of LIV Golf. Several heavy hitters in golf will play in the inaugural LIV Golf Series, such as Bryson DeChambeau, Dustin Johnson, Phil Mickelson and Sergio Garcia. 

The Format 

LIV Golf: Sergio Garcia's Fireballs GC Team

Each tournament in the LIV Golf Series will consist of just three rounds, in comparison to the four that are played at other international competitions such as the PGA Tour.  

Interestingly, each tournament of the LIV Golf Series will begin on a shotgun start. This means that players will all start at the same time, on different holes – rather than on a staggered tee-time from the first hole.  

Twelve captains will draft teams of three, the teams will for each tournament. All forty-eight players will play in the three rounds (54 holes), simultaneously competing in a team event format and an individual event. Each tournament takes place over three days, and the team's overall score is determined by the two best stroke-play scores from the first two rounds. In the final round, the team's winning score is determined by choosing the three best scores from the team. 


The total prize purse for the LIV Golf Series is said to be a whopping $405 million.
