In 2022, the LIV Golf Invitational Series - founded by Greg Norman - will host 8 events. The regular season consists of 7 events where players will compete both individually and as a team for both points and prize money. At the end of the 7 events, an Individual Champion will be crowned based on points accumulated throughout the season. The 8th and final event will be the season-ending Team Championship matchplay event.

Centurion Club

Perhaps, with this statement alone, it is why the Centurion Club, which previously hosted the first-ever ‘Sixes’ tournament was chosen to host the very first ever LIV Golf Event.

Located to the west of St Albans in Hertfordshire, Centurion Club was only founded in 2013 and designed by international course architect, Simon Gidman. Making use of the pine woodland, fescue carries, 80 bunkers, raised tee boxes, water features and undulating greens, this course really will provide a good challenge for even the best tour golfers.

Ryder Cup

The PGA & DP World Tour have both taken the stance to block players who participate in any LIV event from playing in future events on their tours, including all majors and even future Ryder Cups.

The founder of the Ryder Cup, Samuel Ryder, started his golfing journey, less than 5 miles away from Centurion Club at Verulam Golf Club. Ryder joined the club in 1909 after catching the golf bug. Fast forward 17 years to 1926 and the newly opened East Course at Wentworth, this was to be the forerunner of the Ryder Cup and only after the event was this deemed to be unofficial and the first official Ryder Cup would be the year after in 1927 at Worcester Golf & Country Club.
