Greg Norman, LIV Golf announce 8-event, $255M schedule

LIV Golf Investments on Wednesday formally announced the eight-event tournament schedule for the newly named LIV Golf Invitational Series, beginning in June.

The series has previously been referred to as the Super Golf League.

The Saudi-backed series will dole out $255 million in total purses.

Greg Norman, the CEO of LIV Golf Investments, said the first tournament will be held June 9-11 at Centurion Golf Club in London, England. The series will include four events in the United States.

“I want golf to grow, players to have additional opportunities, and fans to have more fun,” Norman said in a release. “My mission is to help the game reach its full potential and we know the role of golf as an entertainment product is critical to overall participation in the sport. In many ways, we are a start-up. We have a long-term vision and aim to grow. I believe we have a very bright and exciting future.”

It’s unknown which players will be participating and which broadcast partners will be involved.

The full event slate:
June 9-11: Centurion Golf Club, London, England
July 1-3: Pumpkin Ridge Golf Club, Portland, Ore.
July 29-31: Trump National Golf Club Bedminster, Bedminster, N.J.
Sept. 2-4: The International, Boston, Mass.
Sept. 16-18: Rich Harvest Farms, Chicago, Ill.
Oct. 7-9: Stonehill Golf Club, Bangkok, Thailand
Oct. 14-16: Royal Greens Golf Club, Jeddah, Saudi Arabia
Oct. 28-30: Team Championship, TBA

“Our events are truly additive to the world of golf,” Norman said. “We have done our best to create a schedule that allows players to play elsewhere, while still participating in our events. I believe players will increasingly make progress in achieving their right to play where they want. We will help in any way possible and will provide golfers with opportunities to achieve their full potential.”

Tour commissioner Jay Monahan, however, has been publicly adamant that any golfer from the PGA Tour who opts to play in the LIV Golf Invitational Series will face a lifetime ban from the tour.
