Fifteen Players in World’s Top 100 Have Registered for First LIV Golf Tournament

With Monday being the last day PGA Tour players can ask for a release to play in the first LIV Golf International Series event outside of London in June, the upstart organization run by Greg Norman has more than 70 players who have registered for the initial tournament.

Included among those players are 15 who are ranked among the top 100 in the world, a LIV Golf spokesperson told SI.com/Morning Read. Due to player confidentiality agreements, the names of the players are not being released.

While it is not the haul of top-ranked players Norman and his LIV Golf Investments organization originally envisioned when attempting to put together a league that would have a 14-tournament schedule, it appears to be better than expected after the organization pivoted in the wake of controversial comments attributed to Phil Mickelson in February.
