How to Watch and Bet On Controversial LIV Golf Invitational Debut Tourney
Whether the PGA Tour likes it or not – and it absolutely does not – Greg Norman’s Saudi Arabian-funded LIV Golf Invitational Series will debut Thursday on a course (Centurion Club) north of London.
The two biggest names participating in the premiere event are U.S. stars Dustin Johnson and Phil Mickelson, who’ll be joined by five other major championship winners: Sergio Garcia, Charl Schwartzel, Martin Kaymer, Graeme McDowell, and Louis Oosthuizen as part of the 48-player field.
The event will take place from June 9-11 (just three 18-hole rounds instead of the typical four) and the tournament will be streaming online at LIVGolf.com, YouTube, and Facebook. Coverage will begin at 9 a.m. ET each day.
OK, so now that you know what it is and how to watch it, how can you bet on it, you ask?
There aren’t many sites out there offering odds, but we at OddsSeeker.com found one at upstart 888 Sport. That’s currently available only to New Jersey residents, who also have a slew of other options when it comes to New Jersey Online Casinos.
Johnson, ranked No. 15 in the world, is the clear favorite (+500) but I like Oosthuizen’s current game and iron play better at +1000 odds.
What is not clear is the fallout from players spurning the mighty PGA Tour to join a league backed by a country that has been accused of and denounced by various international organizations and governments for violating human rights within the country.
Much is to be determined but the PGA Tour’s own tournament in Canada will be played as other defiant pros make their debuts at the LIV in London.
UPDATE: The PGA Tour has suspended all 17 members that are competing in the inaugural LIV Golf event. Those that had resigned their membership before the LIV tournament are also no longer eligible to compete in any tour events. Those 17 Golfers suspended are:
