LIV Golf saw some major changes in the past couple of months, from the mega signing of the world no.3 to a few fresh faces joining the roster. But that’s not all — there were even changes within the league itself, as the LIV Golf’s transfer window has closed. With the players ending their free agency, the teams are taking new forms.

The first on the list is Bryson DeChambeau’s Crusher GC. The 4 man roster clinched the team championship at the LIV Golf Miami. Apart from the exceptional camaraderie between the teammates, one golfer’s performance played a pivotal role in winning the 14 million prize money — Anirban Lahiri. It was none other than Anirban Lahiri. Despite Lahiri’s contract having expired at the end of the 2023 season, his outstanding contribution during the team event led to the renewal of his contract with Crushers GC. The Indian golfer went on to prove his worth as a player by finishing 13th in the LIV Golf Individual Standings.

Neither Lahiri nor three other two members, Charles Howell III and Paul Casey, entered the free agency, making them fixed members of Crusher GC. Additionally, Howell III finished under 24 at 10th in the standings and Casey was 35th, however, he has a viable contract, securing the spot in the team and the LIV Golf card for next season.
