Donald Trump set to take center stage in upcoming LIV events

Donald Trump has been a huge fan of golf and has been a constant supporter of LIV Golf. As the golfing community struggles to find its feet following the merger, Trump sought to have the last laugh. In 2022, he predicted that the PGA Tour will soon merge with the PIF-backed tour. His prediction turned out to be correct.

The billionaire has previously claimed to have a 2.8 handicap score. According to experts, this is an impressive feat that can rank him among the top players around the world. He though has not posted any scores since 2021 which had led to the question about its validity. Several people have also claimed that he cheated his way through to get that score.

While the debate regarding his score continues, Trump is set to have major plans this golfing season. He is stated to once again take part in the LIV Bedminster event which will be hosted at the Trump National Golf Club. His golf course in Florida, the Trump National Doral, will play host to the team championships final of the LIV Golf. The final was originally scheduled to take place in Saudi Arabia but was later relocated to the United States.
