With more renowned golfers, the new LIV circuit will hold the second tournament of its existence on Thursday in Portland, Oregon.
The organization led by curator Greg Norman will offer prize money totaling $25 million, including 20% devoted to the team format of the event. Moreover, the draw for the establishment of the 12 formations will take place on Tuesday, but it is already certain that well-known players will be present in the American West. Phil Mickelson, Dustin Johnson, Sergio Garcia and Louis Oosthuizen, among others, will be among the 48 competitors who will challenge the greens on TVA Sports 2, starting at 5 p.m.
Competitors with missed the original London fixture earlier in June – won by Charl Schwartzel – and having joined the circuit since then will also be in action on the Pumpkin Ridge club course including Bryson DeChambeau, Brooks Koepka and Patrick Reed.
The 54-hole tournament will end on Saturday. Schwartzel pocketed $4.75 million for his June 11 triumph, finishing with one-shot priority with a -7 score. His team, the Stinger GC, also won the tag team event. Johnson and Mickelson finished eighth and 34th respectively among the 48 players in the running.
-The TVA Sports channel will be the French-language broadcaster for the LIV circuit tournaments in Quebec. Animation will be provided by Max Lalonde, while Steve Foisy, professional at the Rosemère club, will act as analyst.
