LIV Golf is shipping up to Boston. Kind of.
After a month away, the LIV Golf Series is back this weekend at The International Golf Club in Bolton, Mass., about an hour away from Boston.
So far, there’s been a bit of parity among its ranks through the LIV tour’s first three events: Charl Schwartzel, Branden Grace and Henrik Stenson have taken home wins in London, Portland and Bedminster, respectively. Stenson’s win was particularly timely: The Swede won the tournament after being stripped of his Ryder Cup captaincy, and had some choice words following his victory. Stenson will not make it two in a row in Boston, though, as he withdrew from the event for medical reasons shortly before play began.
Now, even more notable names are expected to gun for the top spots in the tournament: Open Championship winner Cameron Smith is the next ex-PGA Tour star to make the jump to LIV Golf, and will make his debut this weekend in Massachusetts.
