LIV Golf is set to introduce a transfer window and deadline next season, according to Sports Illustrated. The exact set-up has yet to be finalised, but apparently, this was a LIV idea from the league’s inception and is now back and on track for the 2024 season.

The plan  is that both the player transferred and the teams would have to sign off on the transaction, as well as LIV Golf. When exactly the transfer window will close is still up in the air.

“I mean, it’s no different than any other sport, right? Baseball, football, basketball, guys get traded (though) you obviously build a rapport with your squad,” Peter Uihlein told SI. “But at the end of the day, if your franchise thinks they can do better, then they have to make hard decisions, and it’s just business.”

LIV Golf later retweeted the SI story.

Transfers constant source of intrigue and entertainment for fans. This also signifies that LIV will continue to focus on the team aspect of the league and attempt to entice fans to root for squads as well as players.

Although trades have not been allowed thus far, there have been workarounds for teams looking to swap players. Free agents were allowed to move around as Talor Gooch transferred from 4 Aces to Range Goats and Uihlen left Brooks Koepka’s Smash to take Gooch’s spot.

“I can’t speak for everyone,” Bryson DeChambeau added. “But what I can say is that if it comes time to where someone’s not performing well, and it’s been enough time to try and get given that opportunity to play well and it’s not been done, I will make a decision based on that.”
