The 4th Annual LIV Golf Event was held on Friday at The International’s Oaks Course outside of Boston, Massachusetts. After making headlines last week with the acquisition of world No. 2 Cameron Smith, 23-year-old Joaquin Niemann and a host of others, his LIV golf event in Boston is off to an exhilarating start.

The new additions to LIV made an immediate impact (more on that later), but the day belonged to Matthew Wolff. Participating in his third LIV golf event after his Portland debut, Wolfe brought the form he found in the final round of his LIV golf event in Bedminster to his Boston area. .

Wolff started the round with an ace on the par-3 2nd and hit two birdies to finish the first nine at 4-under. With three more birdies and an eagle on the par-5 12th, the 23-year-old came back at 3-under and signed for a first-round 7-under 63.

After winning one of his first starts on the PGA Tour, Wolff has since been shutout at the professional level in terms of wins. With both of his US Opens looming close, he should be confident he can keep his position on pole heading into the weekend. The two, who maintain their joint lead alongside Talla Gooch, are just one stroke behind Smith and Neiman, and major championship winners Louis Oosthuizen and Dustin Johnson. must be dealt with.


T1. Matthew Wolfe and Tara Gooch (-7)

The past few years have been tumultuous for Wolfe, who has struggled on the professional stage since finishing runner-up to Bryson DeChambeau at the 2020 US Open. Fighting demons on and off the golf course, Wolfe was finally in his element and his first round showed that. With six total birdies, an eagle and his one hole-in, the California native will need a weekend to deliver the firepower and fend off the hungry crowds.

While Wolff is fickle, Gooch has remained consistent throughout his short career at LIV Golf. He was one of his two players to score a Top 10 finish in each of his first three LIV golf his events, and was one of the best players in the world from tee to green. one of him. A member of the 4 Aces GC, Gooch has been victorious in the last two events with his LIV team his potion and is looking to add a trophy of his own to his mantle.

Other Candidates

T3. Cameron Smith and Joaquin Niemann (-6)

T5. Kevin Na, Bernd Wiesberger, Louis Oosthuizen, Paul Casey, Anirban Lahiri (-5)

Smith and Niemann looked strong, but the inclusion of Casey on this leaderboard is very interesting. After finishing third in his championship at The Players in March, the British player struggled with injuries and often withdrew just before tournaments on the PGA Tour began.

Casey, finally back in full health, may be able to compete with younger players on the LIV golf circuit. The shrewd veteran has proven successful in his first three tournaments in LIV golf, and Casey appears to be well on his way to adding another trophy for the ‘old’. is.

First Round Leader Makes LIV Golf History

For the fourth time in league history, the first ace was officially decided. Wolfe connected in his second from 178 yards on a par 3, becoming the first member of his LIV Golf team to achieve such a feat in the competition. The former Oklahoma State University standout used the momentum from his 7-under final round at LIV Golf in Bedminster to tie the score to the same score in the opener in Boston. The hole-in-one played an important role in his first round and looked to earn his second professional win in his young career.

Smith, Niemann picks up where it left off

The two biggest signings in the latest wave of LIV Golf acquisitions have made an impression on their debut. His two men, who have recently jumped off the PGA Tour, are just one shot off Wolff’s lead at 6-under, and Schaar has other debuts, including Schwartzel and Henrik Stenson. We hope to follow in your footsteps and win. Their first LIV golf excursion.
