LIV Golf (/lɪv/) is a professional golf tour financed by the Public Investment Fund, the sovereign wealth fund of Saudi Arabia. The name LIV is a reference to the Roman numeral for 54, the score if every hole on a par-72 course were birdied and the number of holes to be played at LIV events. The first LIV Golf Invitational Series event started on 9 June 2022, at the Centurion Club, near London, England. The Invitational Series is to become the LIV Golf League in 2023. The 2023 LIV Golf League will consist of 14 events across the world. At each one, players compete for both individual and team points and prize money. The Individual Champion will be decided by the points accumulated throughout the season, while there will also be a season-ending Team Championship event. Regular season Every time the world-leading stars competing in the LIV Golf League tee it up, they are playing in two competitions simultaneously – an individual and a team event. Each stroke counts in the individual event, and the winner will be the player with the lowest total of shots over 54 holes. In the team event, multiple scores count toward each franchises' total each round, with the franchises with the cumulative low score being crowned the team champion for that event.
