This week, the first season of LIV Golf Series comes to an end in Miami, Florida at the circuit’s team champion.
Trump National Dural will be hosting and the Saudi-backed league announced another change in the format.
Greg Norman shared on social media earlier this year that LIV would allow their players wear shorts during competitive round. LIV added this change to their efforts to separate themselves from the PGA Tour. LIV’s 54-hole events were open to all, with no cut and shotgun starts.
Rangefinders are now also allowed.
LIV Golf announced on Tuesday that distance measuring devices used during rounds would be exempted from the ban, but elevation change calculation (slope reading), will still be prohibited.
Distance measuring devices are allowed during the #LIVGolfMiami team championship 2022 to obtain information about distance. It is prohibited to measure elevation changes.
