Imitation is the greatest form of flattery.
A week after tweeting that exact sentiment in response to the PGA Tour schedule changes coming in 2024 that include several limited-field, no-cut events — a concept and practice long used in professional golf — LIV Golf will be taking a play from the Tour’s playbook for their Australia event.
On the par-3 12th at The Grange Golf Club in Adelaide, LIV is set to construct a stadium-like enclosure modeled after the one surrounding the 16th at TPC Scottsdale for the WM Phoenix Open.
The daily attendance down under is expected to reach 20,000 a day.
The event will be held April 20-23.
#LIV says they will look to create a similar experience to the 16th at the WMPO when competition takes place at Adelaide in Australia. 20,000 fans are expected to attend the tournament per day (total), which will be the league’s biggest event yet.
