The LIV Golf Invitational Series‘ inaugural season featured no shortage of drama, both on and off the course. Brooks Koepka, Phil Mickelson, and several other ex-PGA Tour stars return to hit the links for 14 different events ranging from Boston and Chicago to Jeddah and Singapore. Although LIV Golf has its baggage, the newest professional golf league appears here to stay.
The 2023 LIV Golf season officially began when Mickelson and other LIV Golf stars hit The El Camaleón Golf Course in Mexico, where Charles Howell III claimed his first LIV title over Peter Uihlein. Next up is LIV Golf Tucson from March 17-19 at The Gallery Golf Club in Arizona.

How is LIV Golf different from the PGA Tour?
Although LIV Golf will keep most of professional golf’s traditional rules, the most significant changes are in the format. Rather than playing four rounds across four days, LIV golfers will play three rounds in three days. There will also be no cuts, meaning every golfer will play three rounds.
In an attempt to speed tournaments up, LIV tournaments will use shotgun starts. Golfers will tee off simultaneously from all 18 holes instead of the traditional two groups teeing off from the first and tenth holes.
Although LIV tournaments will feature individual competitions, there will also be team events consisting of 8 four-man groups. Appointed captains will draft the teams before each tournament and compete for additional prize money.
LIV Golf gets its name from the Roman numeral for 54, the score if every hole on a par-72 course were birdied. Each golfer will also play 54 holes at LIV events.
Who are the major names in the LIV Golf Invitational Series?
Six-time major winner Phil Mickelson and 2020 Masters winner Dustin Johnson were among 48 golfers who joined LIV Golf in time for the London event. Johnson was the world’s 15th-highest ranked golfer when LIV Golf began play in June.
Other familiar names include Sergio García, Louis Oosthuizen, and Talor Gooch. Although major winners Brooks Koepka, Bryson DeChambeau, and Patrick Reed later joined the new tour, they didn’t debut until the second event at Pumpkin Ridge Golf Club in Oregon on June 30.
LIV has proven it’s not afraid to spend lavishly to attract the world’s top golfers. Johnson reportedly signed a deal worth at least 125 million USD to join the league. (Tiger Woods, the top-earning PGA golfer of all time, has earned 120 million USD during his career. Woods has not signaled that he will join LIV.)
Every golfer who plays in LIV tournaments is guaranteed to receive a six-figure payout. Front Office Sports reported the last-place finisher in a LIV event will receive 120,000 USD.
The PGA Tour announced on June 9, 2022, that those who joined LIV Golf, including Mickelson and Johnson, are “suspended or otherwise negligible to participate” in PGA Tour tournament play.

How can I stream on my TV with a VPN?
In brief there are five different ways to stream sports on your TV with ExpressVPN:
-With the native app for a smart TV, Android TV device, or other streaming device
-By streaming on your computer and connecting to the TV with an HDMI cable
-By mirroring or casting wirelessly to your TV or streaming device from your computer or mobile device
-By connecting to an ExpressVPN-enabled router, which allows for unlimited devices and makes it super simple to connect to different server locations simultaneously
-With MediaStreamer, ExpressVPN’s solution for devices that cannot install a VPN, such as Apple TV or gaming consoles. MediaStreamer only needs to be set up once, although it does not provide the full security benefits of a VPN. (Note that by connecting your Apple TV or gaming console to a router, you can get the best of both worlds!)
For more information on all the ways to get ExpressVPN on your big-screen TV, click below, or just contact a 24/7 Support agent for step-by-step instructions.
I connected to the suggested VPN server location but I can’t log in to the streaming service!
No worries! Server load changes rapidly (especially when lots of people are trying to watch certain events), but that’s exactly why ExpressVPN has high-speed servers all over the world. If you’re trying to access a site in the U.S. or Germany, for instance, try connecting to a different server location in those countries.
If you’re trying to connect to a country with one server location, the first step is to check your location settings. If you’re on a mobile device, disconnect from the VPN, turn off location services, then connect to the VPN again. On both Windows and Mac computers, you can turn off Location Services within the Privacy & Security settings menu.
For more help, you can always talk to a member of our Support Team, available 24/7 by live chat.
I connected to the VPN but my internet speed is slow
If your internet speed is slow or your streaming seems to lag, there are a few possible reasons:
-The distance of your selected VPN server location from your physical location
-Your connection type (wired connections are more reliable than wireless connections)
-Suboptimal interconnectivity between the VPN and your ISP
-Slow internet connection speed at your location
-Your device type and processing power
Try each of the following steps to troubleshoot:
-Download the latest version of ExpressVPN
-Connect to a different VPN server location
-Change your VPN protocol
If you try each of the above and are still experiencing issues with your streaming speed, contact the ExpressVPN Support Team 24/7 and someone will be with you in seconds.
What other streaming services can I watch with ExpressVPN?
ExpressVPN works seamlessly with all the most popular streaming apps from around the world.

If you want to watch your favorite team from anywhere—even while traveling or on unsecured networks like public Wi-Fi—ExpressVPN is a great way to enhance your sports streaming experience.
