Could LIV Golf event at Doral be last for Saudi-backed league at Donald Trump course?

LIV Golf's preliminary 2024 schedule does not include any events at properties owned by Donald Trump.

The schedule, obtained by SI.com but still subject to change, once again includes 14 tournaments, but none at courses owned by the four-time indicted former president.

Trump, who lives in Palm Beach, Florida, will have hosted five LIV events in the league's first two years, including those at his properties at Doral, Florida; Bedminster, New Jersey; and outside of Washington, D.C.

LIV's season-ending team championship for 2023 is Oct. 20-22 at Trump National Doral for the second consecutive season. The preliminary schedule for 2024 lists the season finale at "South Florida."

Trump has been a vocal supporter of LIV Golf, which is backed and financed by Saudi Arabia's Public Investment Fund. Last year he predicted LIV and the PGA Tour, bitter rivals at the time, would merge. In June, the PGA Tour, along with the DP World Tour, and Saudi Arabia's Public Investment Fund that owns LIV Golf made the stunning announcement they had reached a framework agreement that would combine their assets.

"All of those golfers that remain 'loyal' to the very disloyal PGA, in all of its different forms, will pay a big price when the inevitable MERGER with LIV comes, and you get nothing but a big 'thank you' from PGA officials who are making Millions of Dollars a year," Trump wrote on Truth Social in July 2022.

Trump has been a fixture at LIV events on his courses, playing in the pro-am and sticking around for at least part of the weekend at some events.

LIV is proceeding with a full 2024 schedule as the details of the agreement have yet to be released. Some even believe the deal could be blocked by the Justice Department.

That preliminary schedule, according to SI.com, includes six events in the United States and eight internationally. US events right now are scheduled for West Virginia, Las Vegas, Dallas, Los Angeles, Oklahoma City and South Florida.

LIV also will play in Mexico, Jeddah, Hong Kong, Adelaide, Singapore, Valderrama, England and South Korea.

LIV has completed 12 events this season with Jeddah (Oct. 13-15) and Doral remaining.
