LIV Golf London live scores, results, highlights from Thursday’s Round 1 leaderboard

LIV Golf is officially teeing off for the first time on Thursday as it looks to become a true competitor for the PGA Tour. The start-up tour’s London event will be the first of eight tournaments the Saudi-backed governing body is hosting, and it will hope to create positive momentum with this first event.

The new tour has managed to lure a couple of big-time golfers onto it in Phil Mickelson and Dustin Johnson. The duo will collectively serve as the faces of LIV Golf for this tournament with Johnson, the 15th-ranked player in the world and highest-ranked player on the tour, serving as the favorite to win it all.

There are a handful of other recognizable names in the LIV Golf event. Louis Oosthuizen, Kevin Na, Taylor Gooch and Sergio Garcia have all found success on the PGA Tour and will look to set themselves up to take home a big chunk of the massive purse up for grabs in the LIV Golf debut event.

Additionally, other competitors from around the world — including top amateurs like Turk Pettit and 15-year-old Ratchanon Chantananuwat — will be taking aim at the top prize.

The Sporting News is tracking Round 1 of the LIV Golf London event. Follow along for the highlights from the action as well as the results for Mickelson and Johnson.
