The final event in the inaugural LIV Golf season takes placce at Trump National Doral in Florida with a knockout Team Championship offering a $50 million purse.

In the final regular event of the season in Jeddah, Brooks Koepka won the individual competition to help Smash GC to its first victory in the team competition as the teams jostled for position in the standings ahead of the seeded finale. Smash GC begin the event seeded fifth, while the team that finished runner-up in Saudi Arabia, Sergio Garcia's Fireballs GC, is the number three seed behind Dustin Johnson's 4 Aces GC and Bryson DeChambeau's Crushers GC

Four teams of 12 will take part in the event with $16 million on offer to the winning team to be shared amongst its members, with $8 million awarded to the runner-up. While Johnson's 4 Aces GC head into the tournament in the strongest position, there are some big names throughout a field which has two changes from the previous event.

Japanese player Hideto Tanihara misses out despite appearing in five of seven tournaments this season. After representing Iron Heads GC in the season-opener in London, Tanihara joined Torque GC and captained the team in Portland and Bedminster. However, following a finish of 17th in the individual event at Pumpkin Ridge, he has failed to live up to that promise and finished a lowly 34th in Jeddah.

Perhaps even more unfortunate to miss out on the finale is South African Shaun Norris, who played in all seven previous events. Norris had represented Stinger GC in the previous three tournaments after beginning the season with 4 Aces GC. He also played for Crushers GC in Portland and Bedminster. However, like Tanihara, his recent performances have been disappointing and he finished 44th in Saudi Arabia.

Adrian Oteagua, whose sensational win on the DP World Tour’s Andalucia Masters has clearly not gone unnoticed, returns for the finale. The Spaniard rejoins Torque GC after previously playing for them in London and Boston. The other player making a comeback is South African Hennie Du Plessis who is on Stinger GC. Du Plessis made an impressive start to his LIV Golf career, finishing second in the individual event in London. He followed that up with finishes of 33rd in Portland and 44th in Bedminster.

The field features four former world number ones, including Johnson and Lee Westwood, while a total of 22 Majors have been won among the 48 players in the field. The top 36 players in the Individual Standings, who have played a minimum of four tournaments, qualify for the Team Championship, with league commitments and captains’ selections determining the remainder of the field.  

LIV Golf CEO Greg Norman said: “LIV Golf has revived the sport in record time during our beta-test season. LIV players are celebrating the team format which is bringing new energy and audiences to golf that the game deserves. 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.”

Following the finale, LIV Golf is expected to confirm its 2023 schedule in November, with the competition expanding to a 14-tournament League featuring promotion and relegation. It will include 12 teams each led by one established captain who will have the chance to build their team franchise to gain the greatest fan followings and sponsor interest.
