LIV Golf announces Chicago venue for individual finale

May 1, 2024

On Tuesday Bolingbrook Golf Club was named host of LIV’s 13th event of the 2024 season. When the Saudi-backed circuit released its schedule last fall, Chicago was earmarked to receive an event, but was without a home course. Bolingbrook previously hosted a 2021 Forme Tour, the PGA Tour affiliated minor-league formed in response to the COVID-19 pandemic to provide competition for non-Canadian PGA Tour Canada members.

Rich Harvest Farms in Sugar Grove had hosted a LIV event the past two years in the Chicagoland area.

“The passionate sports fans of Chicago have embraced the intense competition and fan-first experience that LIV Golf delivers, and this year it will be an incredible setting for a high-stakes event as players battle it out for the individual title and a roster spot for 2025,” LIV commissioner and CEO Greg Norman said in a release. “We’re thrilled to return to Illinois with an event at Bolingbrook Golf Club as we celebrate the season-long race and set the stage for the 2024 finale.”

The Bolingbrook competition will see players compete for final positions in the individual standings and the title of 2024 LIV Golf individual champion. It will also determine team seedings for the 2024 Team Championship. The location of the LIV finale has yet to be announced.

Joaquin Niemann is currently atop the individual standings six events into the season, with Jon Rahm in second and Dean Burmester third. Bryson DeChambeau’s Crushers are in the lead of the team component of LIV.
