Mito Pereira, Sebastian Munoz officially join LIV Golf as first four team rosters are revealed

The first two in the next crop of players to leave the PGA Tour for the LIV Golf League are now official.

On Wednesday the upstart circuit led by Greg Norman and financially backed by Saudi Arabia’s Public Investment Fund revealed the rosters of four teams and confirmed previous reports that Mito Pereira and Sebastian Munoz would be joining the league. Both players will join David Puig on Joaquin Niemann’s Torque GC.

Brooks Koepka’s Smash GC also got a shake up with the addition of Matthew Wolff to the roster alongside Jason Kokrak and Chase Koepka.

The Majesticks, co-captained by Henrik Stenson and Ian Poulter remain unchanged from 2022 with Lee Westwood and Sam Horsfield completing the team.

Just days after the 4 Aces GC won the team championship, it was reported they had already made a move to add Peter Uihlein alongside captain Dustin Johnson, Patrick Reed and Pat Perez. That move is now official as Uihlein replaces Talor Gooch.

Here’s the roster release schedule for the rest of the week (captains in parentheses):

Thursday: Cleeks GC (Martin Kaymer), Crushers GC (Bryson DeChambeau), Fireballs GC (Sergio Garcia) and RangeGoats GC (Bubba Watson)
Friday: HyFlyers GC (Phil Mickelson), Iron Heads GC (Kevin Na), Ripper GC (Cam Smith) and Stinger GC (Louis Oosthuizen).

Earlier this week the league also announced its television plans after signing a TV deal with the CW Network last month. LIV will be available in every U.S. market in 2022 across CW affiliates, as well as Nexstar owned and operated stations. Second- and third-round coverage on Saturday and Sunday will be broadcasted from 1-6 p.m. ET for all 14 events. Opening rounds on Friday will only be available on the CW app. If fans want to watch the live action when LIV tees it up in time zones opposite the states – Australia, Singapore or Saudi Arabia, for example – live coverage will be available on the app.

The LIV Golf League will begin its 14-event second season next week at Mayakoba’s El Camaleón Golf Course on the Riviera Maya, Feb. 24-26.
