They join the likes of Phil Michelson, Dustin Johnson and Sergio Garcia who all teed it up at the Centurion Club earlier this month.

What is the format?

The 48 players will be drafted into 12 four-man teams and there will be a shotgun start.

That means that all the players will tee off at the same time at a different hole across the course.

Events are held over three days and 54 holes – as opposed to 72 holes and four days like on the PGA and European Tours – and there will be no cut.

There will be an individual and team event held simultaneously over the course of the event.

The individual winner will be the player with the lowest 54-hole score.

In the team event, the best two scores over the first two rounds will count.

For the third and final round, the best three scores will count and the lowest overall team score after 54 holes will win the event.

How can I watch it?

The event will be streamed live on LIVGolf.com as well as YouTube and Facebook.

The coverage will begin at 4pm ET each day – 1pm local time out on the West Coast.

What is the LIV Golf schedule?

The inaugural event in London was the first of eight scheduled in 2022.

The next four will take place in the United States between June and September beginning in Portland this week.

And there will be back-to-back events in Thailand and Saudi Arabia in October.

The 2022 series is scheduled to finish in Miami on October 30.
