The players head to Bangkok for the first LIV Golf Invitational Series event to feature in Asia. Who will lift the trophy in Thailand? 

Hideto Tanihara will take the place of David Puig at this tournament in the only change to the line-up. 

Past and present major winners in the lineup include Cameron Smith, Patrick Reed, Charl Schwartzel, Henrik Stenson, Bryson DeChambeau, Phil Mickelson, Sergio Garcia, Dustin Johnson, Martin Kaymer, Brooks Koepka, Graeme McDowell and Louis Oosthuizen.

These are our selections for the title this weekend.

Joaquin Niemann


Joaquin Niemann had an excellent spell on the PGA Tour before switching to the LIV Golf Invitational Series, having multiple top ten finishes and a victory.

Niemann's best results were placing T6 at the Farmers Insurance Open, T8 at the Saudi International, winning the Genesis Invitational, T12 at the RBC Heritage, T3 at the Memorial Tournament, T16 at the Genesis Scottish Open, T13 FedEx St Jude Championship, T8 at the BMW Championship and T11 at the Tour Championship.

Other notable finishes for the 23-year-old include T22 at the Players Championship, T35 at the WGC Dell Technologies Match Play, T35 at the Masters, T25 at the AT&T Byron Nelson, and T23 at the PGA Championship.

The Chilean has featured at two LIV Golf Invitational Series tournaments, placing T2 in Boston after losing in a playoff against Dustin Johnson and T4 in Chicago.

Niemann has been close to claiming his maiden victory on the breakaway tour and has the form to win in Bangkok.

Louis Oosthuizen


Louis Oosthuizen had a very mediocre start to his year, finishing T14 at the Phoenix Open, T30 at the Honda Classic, T42 at the Players Championship, T62 at the Valspar Championship, T35 at the WGC Dell Technologies Match, Play and T60 at the PGA Championship.

After that event, the South African parted ways with the PGA Tour and joined the LIV Golf Invitational Series in London, finishing T10 overall. He was allowed to compete at the US Open but missed the cut before placing T8 at the BMW International on the DP World Tour.

Oosthuizen returned to the LIV Golf series in Portland, finishing fifth before heading to the Old Course to contest the 150th Open Championship, where he missed the cut.

He has been in great touch since, placing T19 at Bedminster, T9 in Boston, T6 in Chicago and T10 at the Alfred Dunhill Links Championship last weekend.

Oosthuizen has been holding form, producing excellent results and will be challenging for the title in Thailand this weekend.

Sergio Garcia


Sergio Garcia has had a decent year on the golf course and has gone close to winning in his last few tournaments.

Garcia placed T12 at the Dubai Desert Classic, T24 at the Saudi International, T39, T38, T26 at the Players Championship, T26 at the WGC Dell Technologies Match Play, and T23 at the Masters, and MC at the Zurich Classic of New Orleans in eight appearances.

The 42-year-old's subsequent seven starts were inconsistent, finishing T21 at the Wells Fargo Championship, MC at the PGA Championship, T22 at the LIV Golf Invitational Series in London, MC at the US Open, T48 at the BMW International Open, T26 at the LIV Golf in Portland and T68 at the Open Championship.

The Spaniard has rediscovered his form since playing on the Old Course, placing T6 in Bedminster, T9 in Boston and T4 in Chicago.

Garcia has been in good form in his last three tournaments and must fancy his chances to crack his maiden LIV Golf Invitational Series victory come Sunday. 

Sam Horsfield


Sam Horsfield has been a winner this year and is the long-shot value bet in Bangkok this weekend.

Horsfield placed T12 at the Abu Dhabi Championship and a T4 at the Dubai Desert Classic in his first two tournaments before withdrawing from the Saudi International.

The 25-year-old returned to action a few months later, finishing T18 at the Zurich Classic of New Orleans and T21 at the Betfred British Masters before securing the victory at the Soudal Open in Belgium.

The Englishman's form became wayward after his win, missing the cut at the PGA Championship, placing 5th LIV Golf International Series in London, MC at the US Open, T11 at the LIV Golf in Portland, and MC at the Open Championship.

He has found some consistency of late, finishing 16th at the LIV Golf in Bedminster, 38th at the LIV Golf in Boston and T18 at the recent BMW PGA Championship.

Horsfield has produced top performances in 2022 and can cause upset if he can replicate any of that form in Bangkok. 

Format


An invitational field of 48 golfers will feature at the tournament, with a total purse of $25 million up for grabs. $4 million will go to the winner, while the player coming in last will pocket $120,000.

The players will contest 54 holes instead of the traditional 72 for all the LIV Golf Invitational Series events.

A shotgun start will occur, where the players will tee off simultaneously from different holes.

A 12 four-man team format will run concurrent, with the top three teams earning prize money.

Verdict

Niemann has been close to winning his maiden LIV Golf event and will have a chance to lift the trophy this weekend.

Oosthuizen can be rewarded with the victory as he has been consistent on the golf course lately.

Garcia has been showing signs he is ready to win another title and can challenge for the title in Bangkok.
 
Horsfield can make his presence felt in Thailand and offers excellent value this weekend.
