LIV Golf Portland live golf scores, results, highlights from Thursday's Round 1 leaderboard

After Charl Schwartzel won LIV Golf London, the new league is coming to the United States. Specifically, it’s coming to Portland, Oregon. With it will come a few new faces. Brooks Koepka, Patrick Reed, and Pat Perez highlight newcomers to LIV Golf, as it continues to expand its footprint in the golf world.

So far, there have been theatrics and fireworks ahead of the controversial tournament. LIV Golf members vented their frustrations, saying the PGA Tour got themselves into this mess and that the PGA ‘tried to strong arm us.

Additionally, Brooks Koepka and Pat Perez attempted to reframe their decision to join LIV Golf in contentious press conference, citing travel schedules and family time.

Still, the show must go on.

Taking place at Pumpkin Ridge Golf Club, it will be similar to the format of LIV Golf at The Centurion Club. A shotgun start will kick things off at 1:15 p.m. local time, and players will play through the end of the round. That will repeat Friday and Saturday.

Despite opening to middling views in London, the tournament has remained a topic of hot debate, due to its Saudi Arabian monetary backing and the country’s human rights issues, as well as the confrontational tone of its CEO Greg Norman. 

Here’s what to know about LIV Golf Portland, along with live updates when the event begins.

LIV Golf Portland live updates, highlights from Thursday’s Round 1

4:36 p.m. — It’s been a choppy start in Portland, with a lot of players bogeying or double bogeying their opening holes. Mickelson will get a chance to test his putter again, and Koepka shoots just off the fairway on his second hole. Seven players sit at one under.

4:33 p.m. — As Dustin Johnson bogeys, Mickelson saves par after keeping his birdie putt just to the left.

4:30 p.m. — Carlos Ortiz hits a terrific birdie on nine that teeters on the cup before conceding and falling in. Good start for him as well.

4:24 p.m. — Pat Perez birdies on Hole 3 in his inaugural LIV hole. Good start for him.

4:21 p.m. — Some strange approaches here early, as some shots are angling incredibly low and others are just too hard down the green. Players seem to be trying to figure Pumpkin Ridge out in the early going.

4:19 p.m. — Phil Mickelson slices his first shot out of bounds, so he’ll be dealing with a tough lie on the second hole.

4:15 p.m. — We’re underway at Pumpkin Ridge! Brooks Koepka’s first tee shot gets us started in Portland, as the shotgun start gets things rolling in the second LIV Golf event.
