After months of speculation and controversy, the final round of the inaugural competition for the LIV Golf Invitational Series is here.
Charl Schwartzel kept his position atop the leaderboard as the first two rounds came to a close in London. Schwartzel increased his lead on Friday to 9 under, after posting a 5-under 65 on Thursday, with his South African countryman Hennie du Plessis 3 shots back at 6 under. Dustin Johnson was tied for fourth at 1 under, while Phil Mickelson was 4 over.
The PGA Tour announced Thursday that it had suspended the then-17 members who are competing in the event. Players who compete in LIV events are ineligible to participate on the PGA Tour or any other tours it sanctions. Players who take part in future LIV Golf events will face the same punishment.
Here are the sights, sounds and leaders from the third round of the LIV London tournament.
