It’s been revealed that all 48-players in the 12-team event will be allowed to use electronic rangefinders, in play, when they tee off on Friday at Trump National Doral Golf Club.
LIV made the announcement via social media that “Distance Measuring Devices are permitted during the tournament for obtaining information on distance”, as CEO Greg Norman said his Saudi-backed tour had “revived the sport in record time”
“Players are celebrating the team format which is bringing new energy and audiences to golf that the game deserves,” he said.
“It‘s fitting that we tie a bow on this historic year with a dramatic and innovative team championship that will propel us into a team-focused league from 2023 onward.”The moves comes just after US pro, Blake Abercrombie, was disqualified after just one hole of DP World Tour Qualifying school after he used a rangefinder and was removed from the event.
The PGA Championship made a bold move to allow rangefinders, which are not permitted in any PGA Tour event, in 2021, a rule which stayed in place in 2022, as part of efforts to improve pace of play.
Rangefinders cannot be used during PGA Tour tournament rounds, but they can be used on-course during practice rounds.Cameron Smith’s all-Australian “Punch” team, which includes countrymen Marc Leishman, Matt Jones and Wade Ormsby, are one of the lowest seeds going into the final event.
Despite Smith winning just his second event after his controversial move to LIV golf, the rest of his team has battled, finishing outside the points, and the bonus cash, in both Bangkok and Jeddah after grabbing a share of the third-place money in Chicago when Smith won the individual title.
Continuing LIV’s unique approach, the top four-ranked teams go straight to the semi-finals, with the remaining highest-ranked teams selecting their opponents for Friday’s quarterfinal match-ups.
Then on Sunday, the 16 players from the four semi-final winners will compete in a shotgun-start round of stroke play. Players will compete in twosomes, team captains will play together, and all scores will count towards a team’s cumulative score.
At the end of Sunday’s round, the team with the lowest score is the LIV Golf Invitational Series Team Champion and collect a massive payday.
