The LIV Golf series has managed to cause its fair share of controversy over the last few months since its inception. The Saudi backed series has met with backlash for the large sums of money that it is offering golfers to join. The likes of Phil Mickelson, Bryson DeChambeau and even world no. 2 Cameron Smith have made the switch to the series.
The LIV Series however, continues to carry on, with the fourth event just recently being held in Boston. It was Dustin Johnson’s win for the taking, as he gave LIV Golf its first big moment of the series, making a 35 foot eagle putt. He edged out Joaquin Niemann and Anirban Lahiri to pick up a LIV Title, and a heap of money.
“It was going a little fast, but it was a good line,” Johnson said with a big smile. “I got some unlucky breaks (on No. 18) the first time around. It owed me one and I got it,” said Johnson, pleased with the result of the event. The winners walked away with quite the great prize money.
