The rival league has been expanding itself. It has been adding more players and hence, attracting more talent to its events. They have also made attempts at making LIV Global.

In a recent tweet, Greg Norman announced the opening of LIV Golf in Australia. The competition can now be seen at South Australia’s Grange Golf Club in 2023.

Norman tweeted, “There is massive potential for Australia to play a bigger role in golf, & we at #LIVGolf couldn’t be more excited to showcase Adelaide in 2023. Thank you to Peter Malinauskas, The Grange, & the South Australian government for your monumental effort to bring LIV Golf to Australia.”

In another tweet, Norman said, “From the start of my family’s journey to Australia on my father’s side via Port Lincoln, to my first professional win as a young 21-year old Queenslander at the 1976 West Lakes Classic, it is only fitting to be bringing LIV Golf to South Australia’s #TheGrangeGolfClub in 2023″

Only time will tell how things will turn out for LIV Golf in Australia. However, as things are proceeding,it is stringent in the persuasion of its expansionary approach. Australia might just be the beginning of a bigger plan.

However, the LIV administration has been prompt in disregarding these claims. LIV Managing Director, Majed Al Sorour was key to making it clear. He said, “Greg Norman is our CEO and commissioner. Any suggestion that changes are being made to Greg’s title or role is patently false.”

It does make sense for them to make the air clear. Considering the fact that Norman has put most of his contacts from his professional years into building LIV Golf from scratch. Having someone as influential as Norman just puts the cherry on top of the situation.
