The fifth LIV Golf event takes place in the “Second City.” Kind of.
LIV Golf is at Rich Harvest Farms in Illinois this weekend, and while the tour calls it its Chicago event, it’s actually taking place about an hour outside Chicago, in Sugar Grove, Ill.
Regardless of exact coordinates, Dustin Johnson is set to build on his victory outside Boston, where he became the first American to win an LIV Golf invitational event. Johnson outlasted LIV Golf newcomers Joaquin Niemann and Anirban Lahiri at The International, taking home the win after the tour’s first playoff.
No splashy new names defected from the PGA Tour ahead of the Chicago event, but the competition should remain just as intriguing.
Here’s how to catch this weekend’s LIV Golf event in Chicago:
