On the 9th - 11th June, golf will see the introduction of the brand-new Saudi-backed LIV Golf Invitational Series (opens in new tab). Being held at Centurion Club in Hertfordshire, it is yet to be confirmed who will be teeing it up at the tournament. However, despite the lack of field, tickets to the first seven events were released on Wednesday, with the rather high pricing leading to some questions from individuals over social media.

For the opening event at Centurion (opens in new tab), a one day ground pass will cost you £67.88, whilst a 3-day ground pass will set you back £179.69. If you really want to treat yourself, there are premium packages, which can go upwards of £9000.

The cost of £67.88 can be compared to the general admission tickets to the Genesis Scottish Open, which will feature a number of the game's big stars as they ramp up preparation for The Open Championship (opens in new tab) the week after.

At the time of writing, general admission tickets for the Genesis Scottish Open are starting at £25 for the Pro-Am practice day on Wednesday, with the competitive days of action on Thursday - Sunday ranging from £35 - £40. It's the same for the BMW PGA Championship at Wentworth, where their prices range from £16 for a practice day, to £55 for the conclusion on Sunday.
