After a week off for the PGA Championship, the LIV Golf League is back in action this week outside the nation’s capital.
The Greg Norman-led and Saudi Arabia-funded series is hosting its seventh event of the season at Trump National Washington D.C. in Sterling, Virginia, with its signature 54-hole, 12-team and shotgun-start format. The talk of the tournament will be Brooks Koepka, who claimed his fifth major championship at last week’s PGA at Oak Hill Country Club in Rochester, New York.
LIV Golf has previously held events at the former president’s properties in Bedminster, New Jersey and Doral, Florida.
Harold Varner III has a two-stroke lead over James Piot after an opening 8-under 64 in the first round. Andy Ogletree, Cam Smith, Kevin Na and Mito Pereira are tied for third at 4 under while Dustin Johnson and Patrick Reed are tied for seventh with a large group at 3 under.
On the team side, Iron Heads GC and RangeGoats GC are tied for the lead at 10 under.
