“I felt like we had a really good read on it,” Johnson said of his winning putt. “I might have hit it a little harder than I wanted to, but as soon as I hit it, I'm like, whoa, and then it was on a good line, and I'm like, hit the hole, hit the hole, hit the hole, and it went in somehow. I think the hole is indented for sure.”

LIV is a Golf Gamechanger

So how is LIV Golf shifting the game? The new, energized format builds on old traditions while incorporating fresh ideas and new rivalries. Not only can you cheer for your favorite player, but LIV Golf also lets you root for your favorite team.
There are 12 LIV Golf teams, with four world-class players on each. There are no cuts, so you’ll always see your favorite golfer compete. Shotgun starts and fewer rounds give the game a faster, more exciting pace.
Shorter playing windows, smaller fields, more action, and only three rounds of tournament play – equaling 54 holes — all help make LIV Golf unique. And tailor-made team colors, logos, and names offer a distinct look and feel.
The LIV Golf brand is cutting-edge and one-of-a-kind. Greg Norman, former world No. 1 golfer and World Golf Hall of Fame member, founded LIV Golf with a mission of growing the game, offering additional opportunities for players, and a fun, louder and family-friendly experience for fans.
