The LIV Golf series is up and about to change things in the world of golf as the breakaway tour tries to create a fresh way of looking at golf- and Phil Mickelson has been at the centre of it. The Saudi backed series did not receive the warmest welcome from fans and pros alike, as the large amounts of money they were offering made them seem suspicious.
However, the Series is here to stay, and bring changes along the way. The LIV Series has introduced new rules in golf- as they want to change the way golf is seen. The series has introduced a team style play of golf, where teams along with individuals play on tournament weekends.
Along with that they have a 54 hole format, no cuts and their newest addition seems like a much needed change- they have allowed shorts on the course. A welcome decision, it has been accepted by several golfers, whether they are against or for the tour. Recently, the world saw golfers wear shorts on course- especially Phil Mickelson, and the reactions were worth it.
