LIV Golf Hong Kong: Everything you need to know

Thailand, Saudi Arabia, Singapore and now Hong Kong! LIV Golf is expanding its Asian palette this week…

 

For the first time in its short history, the LIV Golf League visits Hong Kong this week for its fourth event of the 2024 season.

Hong Kong becomes the fourth Asian country to play host to the LIV Golf League, following in the footsteps of Thailand, Singapore and Saudi Arabia.

The latter played host to last week’s LIV Golf Jeddah, with the circus moving east for this week’s competition.

Hong Kong Golf Club will play host to the tournament. It is a course that has hosted the Hong Kong Open since 1959, with the face of LIV Golf, Greg Norman, having won the event twice.

The likes of Padraig Harrington, Miguel Angel Jimenez, Rory McIlroy, Ian Poulter and Justin Rose have all been victorious at the venue since the turn of the century.

Chilean Joaquin Niemann is the man in form. He has won two of the first three events of the 2024 LIV Golf campaign, with wins in Mayakoba and Jeddah.

Mention a European country, and Matt will tell you which resorts make the National Club Golfer Top 100s: European Resorts list. He might even throw in who designed the golf course and how many rooms the hotel has got at each one…

Matt got into the game of golf from a young age, following his old man to the local golf club. He fell for the sport, and now can’t seem to go a day without thinking about how to improve his game (Thanks Dad!). Matt has been a member of Howley Hall GC in Leeds since 2020, and is just about managing to maintain a single-figure handicap. He likes to remind people that he once broke 75, but won’t tell people that it was on a shortened course during the winter.

He moved to Leeds after graduating from the University of Central Lancashire with a First Class Honours degree in Sports Journalism. Matt joined NCG after almost five years travelling the world with the Professional Squash Association, working on events in all four corners of the globe.

Matt currently plays a Cobra King LTDx driver and RadSpeed 3-wood. TaylorMade monopolise the rest of his bag, with a SIM UDI, M5 irons and both Milled Grind and HI-TOE wedges, along with a Monza Redline putter. He uses a Vice Pro Plus golf ball, because he’s a bit different…

Away from golf, Matt is a Manchester United fan, and a keen runner, having ran the Rob Burrow Leeds Marathon (his first and possibly last), in May 2023.
