Many of LIV Golf’s core elements have carried through to 2024, but you need to know about the odd tweak here and there…
The I’s were dotted and the T’s were crossed rather late in the lead-up to LIV Golf’s third season.
The Saudi-funded league now features 13 teams, but there will be 54 players competing at each event.
That doesn’t add up. No need to worry, our summary of the LIV Golf format 2024 will follow shortly.
Chops and changes happened in several of the four-man teams. The full squads can be viewed here in our LIV Golf team rundown.
The LIV Golf 2024 schedule is also here, with 12 dates booked.
The Individual Championship and the Team Championship at the end of the season do not yet have dates or venues.
How does the LIV Golf format work?
As alluded to previously, there will be 13 teams and 54 players at each event. The two spare spots will be taken by two wildcard picks.
The events will be 54 holes of stroke play, despite some rumbles that this element could change, and the shotgun start will still be in effect.
In the team discipline, each of the team’s top three scores count in rounds one and two, and all four scores will count in the final round of each event.
In the individual discipline, the season-long individual standings will feature the Lock Zone for positions 1 to 24.
Updated cut-offs for the Open Zone, places 25 to 48, and the Drop Zone, 49 and below, will follow to reflect the increased field size.
Players finishing in the top 24 at the end of the regular season will have a spot for 2025. Players finishing between 25th and 48th who are out of contract will need to be re-signed by their team or picked by another team.
Players finishing 49th or below will be relegated from the league and qualify for the 2024 LIV Golf Promotions tournament.
You earn individual points at an event by finishing in the top 24 on the individual leaderboard. The winner at each event will pocket $4,000,000 and the bottom player in 54th place will bank $50,000.
In terms of the Team Championship at the end of the season, the top 12 teams after the 13th regular season event will compete and the 13th-placed team won’t.
