LIV Golf and DP World Tour players will face off at the Abu Dhabi HSBC Championship (total prize money of $9 million), the first Rolex Series event of the season.
The Abu Dhabi HSBC Championship, the first event of the Rolex Series, a major DP World Tour event, will be held at Abu Dhabi Links Yas, United Arab Emirates (UAE) for four days from the 19th.
As the scale has grown with an increase of 1 million dollars compared to last year, many players who are said to be the best are also participating.
Henrik Stenson (Sweden), who is playing for LIV Golf, sortie. It is the first time in about six months since the Open in July 2021 that he participates in the DP World Tour.
He was ousted from the Ryder Cup European team captaincy in July of last year amid rumors of contact with LIV Golf. After joining LIV Golf, he won the LIV Golf Invitational Bedminster, the first competition he participated in.
Along with Stenson, additional LIV golf players such as Patrick Reed (USA) and Lee Westwood (England) will participate. Before the opening of LIV Golf, it seems that they are participating in this tournament with large points and prize money to accumulate world ranking points.
As it is a big tournament in the DP World Tour, it seems difficult for LIV golf players to easily compete for the championship. Francesco Molinari (Italy), Tommy Fleetwood (England), and Shane Lowry (Ireland), who led the continental European team to victory in the Hero Cup, similar to the European Ryder Cup, decided to participate. 온라인카지노
In addition, those who are consistently active in the DP World Tour, such as Tyrrell Hatton (England), Adrian Ortegui (Spain), Adrian Meronk (Poland), and Ryan Fox (Australia), were also on the list of participants.
Among the Korean players, Wang Jeong-hun (28) was the only one on the list. Korean-Australian Lee Min-woo is also scheduled to appear on the tour after a while.
