It was founded in 2022, sponsored by the Public Investment Fund (Saudi Arabia’s sovereign wealth fund). The circuit rivals the PGA Tour (United States) and the DP World Tour (Europe), offering substantially higher cash prizes.
The name LIV refers to the total number of holes to be played in each event (54 in Roman numerals, corresponding to 3 rounds of 18 holes), as opposed to the usual 72 holes (4 rounds of 18 holes) on other courses. Alternatively, 54 is the score obtained by scoring a birdie on each hole on a par 72.1 course.
In March 2022, LIV Golf CEO, former professional golfer and former world number one Greg Norman, announced the schedule for the first season of the LIV Golf Invitational Series. This consists of eight tournaments, to be played over a total of 54 holes without court.
Each tournament will have a field of 48 players, who will be grouped into 12 teams of four players, with simultaneous matches. The total prize pool to be distributed is 255 million dollars.
