The second year of the Saudi-funded LIV Golf will go to three courses owned by former President Donald Trump as part of a 14-event schedule in 2023, according to a report by SI.com.

The report said that LIV Golf has announced its schedule, although the LIV website only said that the full schedule is coming soon. The rival league said earlier that it will open its season from February 24-26 at the Mexican golf resort of Mayakoba, which previously hosted the PGA Tour stop.

LIV Golf did not immediately respond to an email seeking comment.

Meanwhile, the UK’s Daily Telegraph has quoted European Tour chief executive Keith Bailey as saying he and PGA Tour commissioner Guy Monahan have stepped down as members of the World Golf Rankings’ governing board from any discussion of whether LIV Golf should gain world ranking points. .

The PGA Tour confirmed that Monahan was not part of the December board meeting that dealt with the LIV situation. It usually takes a year before a new circuit joins the OWGR system, and LIV Golf’s league of 54-hole events with no cuts falls short of some of the OWGR’s guidelines.
