LIV Golf Invitational Bangkok Preview

By: | Mon 03 Oct 2022 | Comments


THE LIV Golf circus arrives in Bangkok this week for the first of successive events - and the big news is that no new signings are expected to be announced before the tournament gets under way.

They head to Jeddah next week and later in the month arrive at Doral for a season-ending extravaganza with vast sums of money on offer. 

But first all the 48 players will tee it up at Stonehill Golf Course, just north of the Thai capital. And the big question? Who can beat Cameron Smith

The Australian has had an extraordinary season, winning the Tournament of Champions, the Players Championship and The Open before announcing his decision to jump ship. And he has already won a LIV Golf event. And there is no doubt that his defection was a serious blow to the PGA Tour.

However, life goes on.

Smith’s biggest threats this week are likely to come from Dustin Johnson, who has yet to finish outside the top 10 in the LIV Golf series, and the hugely gifted Joaquin Niemann.

The field also includes Phil Mickelson, Brooks Koepka, Patrick Reed and Martin Kaymer, all former major winners.

“The LIV Golf Invitational Bangkok marks a significant step for LIV Golf in Asia, a massive market with incredible passion for the sport,” said Greg Norman, CEO and Commissioner of LIV Golf.

“Our investment in the Asian Tour with The International Series has already begun to create new opportunities in golf. This tournament in Thailand is further proof of LIV Golf’s commitment to showcasing top competition amongst the best golfers on the planet while connecting with new audiences around the world. Excitement continues to build with each event, and we can’t wait to deliver a memorable tournament at Stonehill, a one-of-a-kind venue.”

In Bangkok, players will once again compete for a purse of $25 million and the chance to become LIV Golf’s sixth individual and team champions, earning points towards LIV Golf’s season-long individual competition.

Live coverage is available on LIVGolf.com and YouTube
