In Bangkok, players will once again compete for a purse of $25 million and the chance to become LIV Golf’s sixth individual and team champions, earning points towards LIV Golf’s season-long individual competition.

Champions

In addition to watching major champions and a roster of world-famous names, local fans will have another reason to cheer at the new Stonehill course, with Thai players Sadom Kaewkanjana and Phachara Khongwatmai once again competing in the high-profile field thanks to their high standings in the Asian Tour and International Series Order of Merit. The International Series is the Asian Tour’s ground-breaking new series of marquee events made possible through a 10-year, $300 million commitment by LIV Golf, with tournaments in venues such as Thailand, Singapore, Korea, Egypt and Morocco, as well as England so far this season.

Building on the successful start to the 2022 LIV Golf Invitational Series and the incredible feedback received from players and fans, LIV Golf announced on July 27th that the LIV Golf League will officially launch in 2023 with 48 players and 12 established team franchises competing in a 14-tournament schedule. The full slate of events, to be announced in the future, is expected to expand LIV Golf’s global footprint across Asia, the Middle East, North and Latin Americas, Australia, and Europe.

With smaller fields, fewer rounds, a defined season, and shorter playing windows, LIV Golf is reinvigorating golf through a cutting-edge product that is winning new fans all over the world and adding value to the entire sport.
