THREE PLAYERS LINED UP? Strong LIV Golf Bedminster field announced with THREE SPACES remaining
LIV Golf today announced the field for its third event of the season intriguingly leaving THREE spaces free for future player announcements coming soon.
The LIV Golf Invitational Bedminster will tee off on 29 July through to the 31 July at Trump National Golf Club Bedminster.
The field includes the debut of No. 32 ranked Paul Casey, a 21-time winner as a pro who has represented Europe in five Ryder Cup team competitions. The English standout has annually performed among the globe’s best, having been ranked as high as No. 3 in the world.
Casey joins a Bedminster field that will showcase 10 major champions with a combined 20 majors won, four former world No. 1 players and nearly half of its competitors currently ranked in the top 100. The global field represents 12 different countries, features 16 players with 10 or more professional wins and includes future stars of the game who have earned NCAA National Championships and US Amateur Championships among their accomplishments. Players will compete in golf’s most exciting new format for $25 million and the chance to become LIV Golf’s third individual and team champions and earn points towards LIV Golf’s season-long individual competition.
Players confirmed for the LIV Golf Invitational Bedminster:
Greg Norman, CEO and Commissioner of LIV Golf, said: “It’s been an historic two months for LIV Golf as we’ve established a new era for the sport that delivers unique energy, camaraderie, and competition. In just six rounds of live action, we have created a golf environment that has captured the world’s attention and attracted young, passionate fans around the globe.
“We are excited to take another giant leap forward at the beautiful Trump National Golf Club Bedminster where our players are eager to tee off in pursuit of the third individual and team titles of the season.”
The 48-man field will play across 12 teams of four players each. Teams will be announced in the days leading up to the tournament start.
South African Branden Grace of Stinger GC finished at 13 under par to secure the individual trophy at the LIV Golf Invitational Portland at Pumpkin Ridge Golf Club, while 4 Aces GC captain Dustin Johnson and his new all-American lineup of Talor Gooch, Pat Perez and Patrick Reed took the team trophy in the first LIV Golf event held in the United States.
South Africans have now won the first two LIV Golf events, as former Masters champion Charl Schwartzel earned first prize in the individual competition at the inaugural LIV Golf Invitational London at Centurion Club. Stinger GC, Schwartzel’s team captained by major champion Louis Oosthuizen, took the team honors in London with fellow South Africans and teammates Hennie du Plessis and Grace finishing second and third, respectively. Grace and Schwartzel are now 1-2 in LIV Golf’s season-long individual points standings.
