LIV Golf Houston: Everything you need to know

LIV Golf visits Houston for the first time this week, with the Golf Club of Houston playing host to the three-day event.

 

Just like the PGA Tour, we also have LIV events either side of the US Open. The first of those is LIV Golf Houston this week.

This is the first time that the LIV Golf League will visit Houston, and the first event in a three week run which features two LIV events and the US Open in the middle.

The Golf Club of Houston will play host to the three-day competition, a venue that has played host to the Houston Open on the PGA Tour from 2003 to 2019.

Paul Casey (2009), Anthony Kim (2010), Phil Mickelson (2011) and Ian Poulter (2018) were all victorious at the Golf Club of Houston during the event’s history. Could they be successful again this week?

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.
