The LIV Golf starts this Friday the second test of the calendar at the Gallery Golf Clubin Tucson, Arizona, with the presence of all the stars of the Saudi millionaire circuit.

And it is that in Arizona, after knowing the game pairings, one of the groups that will raise the most expectation It is the one made up of captains Dustin Johnson (4 Aces), Brooks Koepka (Smash) and Bryson DeChambeau (Crushers), who will start on hole two.

These three players had never met before since the start of the circuit last season and it seems that peace has settled between Koepka and DeChambeau who came to exchange some bad words while competing on the PGA Tour.

The dollars unites them

But now both share the same cause and they fight for big dollars and personal disputes have been put aside, at least for now. “There is no problem between us, in fact, we talk a lot about the LIV,” Koepka said.

Other prominent groups on the first day, which will be formed by Phil Mickelson, Cameron Smith and Charles Howell III. As far as the Spanish are concerned, David Puig from Barcelona will start from the 12th hole next to Richard Bland y Chase Koepka.

Eugenio López Chacarra will do it from hole 15 together with Graeme McDowell and Charl Schwartzel Finally, Sergio García from Castellón will do it together with Peter Uihlein and Joaquin Niemann.

Demanda al LIV Golf

And while everything seems prepared for the competition, The LIV, a famous nightclub in Miami, protested and blocked the registration of the LIV Golf trademark by defending that the logo and name of the new golf circuit funded by the government of Saudi Arabia is “similar” visually and phonetically to the club.

The owner of the nightclub, David Grutman, believes that the registration of the LIV Golf brand would create confusion among customers and defends that his club’s brand has been registered globally for fifteen years, as reported by the US media on Tuesday, citing the expert lawyer in trademark registration Josh Gerben.

We will see what is left of this lawsuit and if it finally forces the LIV to change the name of the circuitor everything is in an agreement with millions of dollars involved.
