LIV Golf LIVE: Leaderboard, TV info, stream and Day 3 scores from Centurion Club after Bryson DeChambeau joins rebel tour

LIV Golf Tour Shifting The Landscape Of The Sport

Day three of the inaugural Saudi-backed LIV Golf event is here with a first winner set to be crowned on the rebel tour. Former Masters champion Charl Schwartzel has seized the lead entering the home straight, ahead of compatriot and Stinger teammate Hennie Du Plessis. Dustin Johnson’s charge fell a little short, but the former World No 1 remains in contention, with the winner pocketing $4m.

The final day of play comes as more players are expected to jump ship from the PGA Tour. On Friday, Bryson DeChambeau was announced as the latest star to join the breakaway series and it followed the confirmation from the PGA Tour that rebel players who participate in this or any future LIV Golf event have been suspended with immediate effect.

The stunning news further entrenched both sides in the battle that threatens to change the sport as we know it and was welcomed by players such as Rory McIlroy, who has remained committed to the PGA. It came as Ian Poulter, one of the 17 golfers sanctioned by the PGA Tour, stated his intention to appeal the suspension. “It makes no sense,” Poulter said. “I didn’t resign my membership because I don’t feel I have done anything wrong. I have played all over the world for 25 years. This is no different… it’s a power struggle and it’s just disappointing.” Follow all the action from the final day of the inaugural event of the controversial tour, below:

9/11 victims’ families hit out at golfers’ ‘betrayal’

A group representing victims’ families and survivors of the 2001 terrorist attacks in the United States have accused the high-profile American players in the LIV Golf Series of sportswashing and betraying their country.

In a letter sent to the agents of Phil Mickelson, Dustin Johnson, Bryson DeChambeau, Patrick Reed and Kevin Na, 911familiesunited.org expressed their outrage towards the players for competing in the Saudi-backed events.

“As you may know, Osama bin Laden and 15 of the 19 September 11 hijackers were Saudis,” wrote the organization’s national chair Terry Strada, a mother of three whose husband, Tom, was on the 104th floor of the north tower of the World Trade Center during the attacks.

“It was the Saudis who cultivated and spread the evil, hate-filled Islamist ideology that inspired the violent jihadists to carry out the deadly 9/11 attacks.

“And, most egregiously, it is the Kingdom that has spent 20 years in denial: lying about their activities, and cowardly dodging the responsibility they bear. Yet these are your partners, and much to our disappointment, you appear pleased to be in business with them.

“Please, do not insult our loved ones’ memories and take the pathetic position, as one of your foreign colleagues did last week, claiming you are “just golfers playing a game” or blandly treating the evils of the Saudi regime as “human rights ”concerns.

“You are all Americans, keenly aware of the death and destruction of September 11. Whether it was the appeal of millions of dollars of hard cash, or just the opportunity to pursue your professional grievances with the PGA, you have sold us out.

“This is a betrayal not only of us, but of all your countrymen.”

Former Masters champion Patrick Reed and world number 168 Pat Perez became the latest players to join LIV Golf on Saturday.

Schwartzel speaks after his win:

“I had to stay calm, I made a bad mistake on 12 but I’m proud of how I hung in and it’s a great feeling.

“Hennie played fantastic golf and he’s got a bright future. I’m proud of him and my teammates, it’s a historical moment. It’s awesome!

“The guys put on an amazing show, what they’ve done (at LIV Golf) is beyond our expectations. The way they treat everybody and the amount of money they put up as prizes!”

Not quite enough on it for Du Plessis and it’ll be a par perhaps for him, leaving room for safety and a bogey for Schwartzel.

Uihlein has a long putt for a share of third…and he sinks it! That’s a tremendous effort to go five under alongside Grace – and a single shot worth over $200,000 difference.

Hennie Du Plessis sinks his putt and it’s second for him unless Schwartzel fails to finish in two putts.

Schwartzel with a very long-range putt on his fourth – and it’s still a bit of a distance for his fifth and par. It’s not quite all over and done with and much depends on how much pressure Du Plessis can apply here.

The Stingers teammates are not quite going to be on the same page for this next few minutes!

Last hole for most, here’s how it stands in the top 10:

Hole 18 then for the front two. Du Plessis needs a big turnaround here if he wants to steal top spot. Two behind Schwartzel still.

His first shot flies into the long, long rough on the side.

Schwartzel opts against the driver as he plays for safety on this par five – it’s a fine strike and right onto the fairway.

Bekker recovers from a bunker shot to get a shot at par and stay on two under…that’s a great finish from him.
