LIV Golf has announced its 2023 schedule which includes three Donald Trump owned golf courses while Greg Norman will also have an elevated role.
According to Sports Illustrated, Majed Al-Sorour, CEO of the Golf Saudi Federation is to step down from his role of LIV Golf managing director.
“Majed Al-Sorour has been and will continue to be an invaluable part of LIV Golf, as he continues in his Board of Directors capacity,” said LIV Golf via a statement to Golfweek. “Majed’s role was pivotal in supporting the launch of LIV Golf. As the business transitions into its first full season with a new broadcast partnership in place, the time is right for the Managing Director role to transition and for Majed to focus efforts and attention on other interests.
“We are grateful for Majed’s hard work, contributions and getting LIV to this new stage.”
LIV Golf is set to get underway for its second successive season with the first event next month in Mayakoba (Feb 24-26), up until this week only seven of the fourteen events had been announced as the Saudi backed organisation shifts to a league format.
The league will conclude in Jeddah at Royal Greens Golf and Country Club on November 3-5.
Three Trump resorts have also been added to the schedule with the first stop coming at Trump National Washington D.C. from May 26-28.
Trump National Bedminster will play host to LIV Golf Bedminster from August 11-13 before the penultimate LIV event touches down in Miami at Trump National Doral which is a former World Golf Championship host.
Recently, Augusta National confirmed that LIV golfers were going to be allowed compete in the upcoming Masters tournament in April and LIV have added an event in Orlando at Orange Country National – which did not appear on the 2022 schedule – which will be held a week before the 2023 Masters.
