LIV Golf Jeddah

The LIV Golf League’s individual champion will be crowned in Jeddah this weekend.

The Saudi-backed series heads to the Royal Greens Golf & Country Club for the final individual tournament of the season before the Team Championship in Miami next week.

Brooks Koepka won this event last season, hailing a “really meaningful victory”, which fuelled his belief to win the PGA Championship in May.

But only three players can win the LIV Golf individual title in 2023, with a new name on the trophy after Dustin Johnson’s dominance in the inaugural year.

Cameron Smith is in prime position to lift the title, with Talor Gooch, who has won three times this season, challenging the Australian for the trophy.

Bryson DeChambeau also has an outside chance of claiming individual glory after winning events at Greenbrier and Chicago.

Meanwhile, there are some looking over their shoulder in the Drop Zone, with those who are not captains needing to finish inside the top 44 or risk having to earn their spot in the 2024 roster at the League’s promotional tournament.

LIV Golf betting tips

Here’s who the bookies fancy to shine this week…

Brooks Koepka 18/1

The bunkered bet

Brooks Koepka 18/1

Koepka shot an opening round of 62 around Royal Greens last year before posting two more rounds in the 60s and beating Peter Uhlein in a play-off. Koepka’s form is difficult to predict in LIV events, but we expect him to bounce back from a disappointing Ryder Cup in Rome by going on a birdie blitz in Jeddah. He should be in the mix to defend his title on a course he has already mastered.
