The 2022 LIV Golf Invitational Series is back with its sixth event of the year about to start in Bangkok as the LIV Golf Bangkok 2022. This will serve as an essential guide for you to find out all that you need to know about the 54-Hole tournament.
LIV Golf is a professional golf tour launched in 2022 and has been a rival to the PGA Tour ever since. It has undergone a lot of controversy as the funds for this tour are said to come from Saudi-Arabia black money. However, having arranged five events already in 2022, the controversial tour continues to be a successful tour.
Now the Saudi-backed and Greg-Norman-led tour heads to Bangkok, with the tournament starting on the 7th of October at the Stonehill Golf Course. The field is of 48 players, and 13 of them are ranked in the top 50. Dustin Johnson, Brooks Koepka, Joaquin Niemann, and Bryson DeChambeau are among the many top golfers who will tee off this Thursday to get themselves a share of the massive purse of $25 million.
The highest-ranked player on the field is World No. 2, Cameron Smith. Smith won the last LIV event in Chicago. The Aussie will look to repeat the feat here in Bangkok.
Such a strong field is bound to offer us a weekend of exciting golf. All five previous editions had different winners. It will be interesting to see if we get to see a player rack up his 2nd win in the invitational series. There is added interest to this tournament as it marks the first time a LIV event is getting played under the banner of the MENA Tour.
