Fairway Finesse: Exploring 2024 LIV Golf

Fairway Finesse: Exploring 2024 LIV Golf - sportingbet

The international LIV Golf league presents a golfing tournament like no other. Founded in 2023 by LIV Golf Investments, the tournament seeks to tap into golf’s potential on the global scale with games played on select courses across the world, attracting a truly diverse guest list. 

*Did You Know? - The name LIV originates from the Roman numerals 54, which would be the final score if every hole on a par-72 course were ‘birdied’ as well as the number of holes players would encounter during their journey through the tournament's various stages.

LIV Golf’s first season proved wildly successful, and the same said for its current and second consecutive season, which kicked off on February 2nd, 2024. This season showcases a total 54 players, forming 13 teams of four in 14 electric locations across the globe with 2 titles up for grabs - Individual Championship and Team Championship. 

With the tournament in its early stages, LIV Golf is hotting up fast. So before things get a little too hot to handle, let’s dive a little deeper into the interesting and lucrative world of The LIV Golf League as well as take a look at what the rest of the year has in store for golf betting fans around the world.

It’s an Individual & Teams Game

The LIV Golf tournament gives players the opportunity to compete in both an individual and  teams leaderboard format. The individual competition is where the top 24 finishers at each event earns points and ranks accordingly on the leaderboard, with the player with the most points at the end of the season winning the coveted title.

The Teams competition throws a bit of a spanner in the works considering the traditional sense of the game. This is where things get interesting - with the Teams Championship decided at the final event of the tournament in a knockout format creating a plethora of exciting H2H’s. The 13 tournaments during regular-season determine the seeding/ Layout for the Team Competition. 

Points are determined as follows:

  • Each team accumulates points over 3 days of each tournament.
  • Only the top 3 players' scores contribute to the over-all team points for that round.
  • On day 4, all four players' scores are tallied and contribute to the team score.
  • Finally, only the top 8 teams earn points in the team standings.

The Best in the Business

As the tournament tees off, the green is set to sizzle with the prowess of top-tier talent. Leading the pack, Dustin Johnson, fresh off his Las Vegas victory, with impeccable precision and unwavering focus, is poised to add more grandeur to his already illustrious career. Hot on his heels, Bryson DeChambeau, the scientist of the fairways, brings his unique blend of power and strategy, promising rounds packed with awe-inspiring drives and innovative plays.

Not to be outshone, is five-time major champion Brooks Koepka, with his unparalleled competitive spirit and robust major championship resume, is ready to dominate the leaderboard and captivate fans with his sheer determination and spectacular shots. Meanwhile, six-time major winner and World Golf Hall of Famer Phil Mickelson, the crafty veteran with a flair for dramatics, continues to defy age, showcasing his legendary short game and experience in navigating the most challenging courses.

The dark horse, Cameron Smith, with his recent surge and exceptional talent, particularly in clutch moments, is set to make waves and potentially outplay the giants.
