The new era of GOLF begins with the second event of the controversial Saudi-backed LIV series taking place in Portland.
After the opening event in London earlier this month, players are ready to gather in Oregon to continue the show.
Players who signed up faced bans, fines and suspensions from the PGA Tour.
But other star names have since joined LIV, including Bryson DeChambeau and Brooks Koepka.
They join the likes of Phil Michelson, Dustin Johnson and Sergio Garcia, who all hit the Centurion Club earlier this month.
Here’s how to catch this week’s action from Portland, along with all the format and field information.
Who’s playing in Portland this week?
The full field with 48 players has now been confirmed by the organizers.
Phil Mickelson, Dustin Johnson and Sergio Garcia all return for the second event.

What is the format?
The 48 players will be drafted into 12 teams of four and there will be a shotgun start.
This means that all players tee off from a different hole on the course at the same time.
The events will be held over three days and 54 holes – as opposed to 72 holes and four days like the PGA and European Tour – and there will be no cut.
During the course of the event, an individual and a team event will take place at the same time.
The individual winner is the player with the lowest 54 hole score.
In the team competition, the two best results of the first two rounds count.
For the third and final round, the best three scores count and the team with the lowest total score after 54 holes wins the event.
How can I view it?
The event will be streamed live on LIVGolf.com as well as YouTube and Facebook.
Insurance coverage begins at 4 p.m. ET every day – 13:00 local time on the west coast.
What is the LIV Golf schedule?
The opening event in London was the first of eight events planned for 2022.
The next four will take place between June and September in the United States, beginning this week in Portland.
And there will be back-to-back events in Thailand and Saudi Arabia in October.
The 2022 series is scheduled to end in Miami on October 30.
