LIV Golf Stars Nowhere To Be Found In Masters ‘featured Groups

AUGUSTA, Georgia – If you were expecting a fun and exciting duo this week pitting a PGA Tour star against a LIV Golf star, forget it.

The Masters released the opening tripleheader on Thursday in a concerted effort to separate players from the Saudi-backed tournament.

None of Thursday's four squads featured at the start featured LIV players.

The first team consisted of Tiger Woods, Victor Hovland and Xander Scheufele.

Next came Justin Thomas, Jon Rahm and Cameron Young, then defending champion Scotty Scheffler, Max Homa, Sam Bennett and finally Jordan Spieth, Tommy Flewood and Tony Finau.
