, LIV Golf: Schedule, live stream FREE, complete field and US start time for Portland THIS WEEK

GOLF’s new era is underway with the second event of the controversial Saudi-backed LIV series taking place this week.

After the inaugural event in London earlier this month, the players are ready to gather in Portland, Oregon to continue the show.

Players who signed up were threatened with bans, fines and suspensions from the PGA Tour.

But more star names have since joined LIV, including Bryson DeChambeau and Brooks Koepka.

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

Here is how to watch the action this week from Portland and all the format and field information.

Who is playing this week in Portland?

Phil Mickelson, Dustin Johnson and Sergio Garcia all return for the second event.

Brooks Koepka, Bryson DeChambeau and Matthew Wolff are among the big name new arrivals.

Charl Schwartzel won the opening tournament in London earlier this month and he returns in Portland.

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.
