Niblicks GC LIV Golf Team
Niblicks GC is one of the 12 LIV Golf teams and after a number of changes in line-up, is currently an all-American outfit captained by Hudson Swafford. The team started with a multinational roster, Northern Irishman Graeme McDowell captaining a team featuring just one American, Turk Pettit, alongside Austrian Bernd Wiesberger and England’s OIiver Fisher.
Pettit is the only player left from the originals, and even that isn’t as simple as it could be, with the 2021 NCAA Division 1 champion playing the second event of the season for Cleeks GC before returning to Niblicks at Bedminster. Wiesberger headed to Hy Flyers GC after London, while Fisher has not made another appearance since the opener.
McDowell captained Niblicks GC again in Portland, where Swafford and James Piot joined up, alongside Travis Smyth. After being skipper for the first two events, McDowell swapped places with Pettit and headed to Cleeks GC, while Smyth left for Punch GC, his third team in three events. Swafford assumed captaincy duties, Pettit returned and Peter Uihlein came in from Crushers GC.
VIDEO: WHAT IS LIV GOLF?
So far, Niblicks GC have been consistently mediocre, finishing 8th, 7th and 7th, but with young players like Piot and Pettit in the ranks, there’s a lot of potential if they can agree on a settled line-up.

Jeff graduated from Leeds University in Business Studies and Media in 1996 and did a post grad in journalism at Sheffield College in 1997. His first jobs were on Slam Dunk (basketball) and Football Monthly magazines, and he's worked for the Sunday Times, Press Association and ESPN. He has faced golfing greats Sam Torrance and Sergio Garcia, but on the poker felt rather than the golf course. Jeff's favourite course played is Sandy Lane in Barbados, which went far better than when he played Matfen Hall in Northumberland, where he crashed the buggy on the way to the 1st tee!
