New year, new rosters (and a couple fresh team names).
This week the LIV Golf League will begin its 14-event schedule for 2023 at Mayakoba’s El Camaleón Golf Course on Mexico’s Riviera Maya, Feb. 24-26. The upstart circuit led by Greg Norman and backed by Saudi Arabia’s Public Investment Fund was initially slated to announced the rosters for all 12 teams over a three-day period last week as it attempted to build hype for its second season of competition. The release was delayed until Monday after reports broke over the weekend that Thomas Pieters and Brendan Steele would be joining the league.
Check out the rosters for all 12 teams, three of which remain unchanged from the 2022 team championship.

Just like the Crushers, the Fireballs return all four players and also missed out on last year’s final round after bowing out in the second. Chacarra picked up his first professional win in Bangkok.
