Australia has become the newest front in the LIV dispute, as lawmakers there quarrel over the announcement that Adelaide would host an event on the Saudi-funded circuit in 2019
Greg Norman appeared at the Adelaide Oval to announce that the city's Grange course will host the country's first LIV event.
With such a large gap in opinion between the current South Australian premier and his predecessor, it's clear that LIV has a penchant to polarise.
Cam Smith, Phil Mickelson, Dustin Johnson, and Europe Ryder Cup heroes Sergio Garca, Lee Westwood, and Ian Poulter have all been accused of helping the
Kingdom "sportswash" in exchange for signing-on fees of up to $200 million, making the murder of Jamal Khashoggi a constant backdrop to LIV in its first year.
Along with Norman, Malinauskas rounded up the PGA Tour podium, where he made a passing allusion to the defence pacts signed by Australia and Saudi Arabia.
