Chase Koepka. LIV Golf
By Matt Smith
The Asian Tour’s inaugural International Series Korea has confirmed a number of international stars from the LIV Golf series will be joining a field that has eight of the top 10 on the Asian Tour Order of Merit.
Former US Masters champion Patrick Reed confirmed earlier this week he would be heading to Lotte Skyhill Jeju Country Club from August 18-21 for the $1.5 million event.
Now it has been announced he will be joined by fellow ‘LIV-ers’ including a host of Americans such as Chase Koepka, the brother of four-time major champion Brooks, and Peter Uihlein, plus former US Amateur champions James Piot and Andy Ogletree. Turk Pettit, who claimed last year’s NCAA Division 1 individual title, and Australian Jediah Morgan – winner of the Australian PGA Championship in January by a record 11 shots – will also be in the field.
Some of the strongest players on the Asian Tour will also be present including Order of Merit leader Sihwan Kim, third-placed Bio Kim, plus some other names familiar to LIV Golf fans such as Asian Tour regulars Scott Vincent of Zimbabwe, Thai pair Sadom Kaewkanjana and Phachara Khongwatmai, South African Justin Harding and Australia’s Wade Ormsby.
Jovan Rebula, the nephew of South African great Ernie Els. has also signed up, along with Korean star Jeunghun Wang, the three-time DP World Tour champion, who has just completed 18-months national service in South Korea.
