The remaining events are expected to be held in the USA. The following cities are expected to hold the six remaining events- Dallas, West Virginia, LA, Oklahoma City, Las Vegas, and South Florida.

Interestingly, the six events speculated to be conducted in the USA are also expected to clash with three of the PGA Tour’s most famous tournaments- the Memorial, The Travelers, and FedEx St. Jude. Questions are being asked as to how will the famous PGA Tour loyalist, Tiger Woods react to this.

What makes it most interesting is that the season’s finale is expected to be held in South Florida. This is an interesting choice as South Florida is home to the golf world legend, Tiger Woods. Tiger’s Den is situated on the famous Florida Jupiter Island. This move by LIV Golf to host their season finale is being viewed as the CEO and commissioner of the LIV Golf league, Greg Norman entering Tiger Woods’s den.
