Four-time major champion Brooks Koepka will make his debut in the second event of the LIV Golf Invitational Series next week at Pumpkin Ridge, outside of Portland. The 32-year-old Koepka has won two U.S. Opens (2017 and 2018) and two PGA Championships (2018 and 2019) among his eight PGA Tour titles, but has battled through various injuries in each of the past few years with his world ranking slipping to 19th.
Koepka joins other top-20 players on the LIV Golf series, along with Dustin Johnson, Phil Mickelson, Sergio Garcia, Louis Oosthuizen, Charl Schwartzel, Bryson DeChambeau, Patrick Reed and Martin Kaymer. Mexico’s Abraham Ancer, who is ranked 20th in the world, was announced Tuesday afternoon as another addition to the LIV Golf series.
LIV Golf is expected to announce the majority of its 48-player field for next week’s events on Wednesday. PGA Tour commissioner Jay Monahan said two weeks ago that those players who participate in LIV events will be suspended indefinitely.
