LIV Golf team rosters set for 2023 ahead of Mexican opener
LIV Golf today confirmed the full 12-team, 48-player field set to compete all season in the groundbreaking LIV Golf League, the first truly global golf league featuring 14 tournaments in seven different countries around the world. League play begins 24-26 February at Mayakoba’s El Camaleón Golf Course in Mexico as many of the sport’s biggest names begin pursuit of the LIV Golf League Individual Championship and Team Championship. More than a quarter (13) of the league’s star-studded, international field are major champions, with 24 major victories amongst them. The field of 48 represents 16 different nations, includes 18 Olympians, and has made 125 combined appearances in the Ryder Cup and Presidents Cup, with more than half of the league having competed in the biennial team events. In total, LIV Golf League players have amassed 526 worldwide wins across multiple tours, and four players have held the title of World No. 1.
Players who finished in the top 24 of last year’s LIV Golf Invitational Series Individual Standings (minimum four events played) secured spots in the 2023 LIV Golf League. Additionally, winners of the 2022 Asian Tour Order of Merit and the 2022 Asian Tour International Series Order of Merit qualified for a team roster position in 2023. League exemptions and captains’ selections make up the remainder of team rosters for the league’s first full season.
Greg Norman, LIV Golf CEO and Commissioner, said: “In less than a year, LIV Golf has reinvigorated the professional game and laid the foundation for the sport’s future. In 2023, the LIV Golf League comes to life.
“The most popular sports in the world are team sports, and our league format has already begun to build connections with new audiences around the globe. Major champions, current and future Hall of Famers, and up-and-coming stars are all committed to creating this new platform for world-class competition as the sport evolves for the next generation.”
