How and when to watch the Saudi International on Asian Tour

The Asian Tour is set and ready to host the Saudi International which will be the biggest event and strongest field that this circuit has ever seen.

30 players from the PGA Tour received waivers to be allowed to travel to Saudi Arabia to compete at the Royal Greens Golf & Country Club near Jeddah.

Dustin Johnson, Phil Mickelson, Bryson DeChambeau, Xander Schauffele, Patrick Reed and Tony Finau are some of America's biggest stars to be teeing it up this week.

Major champions such as Bubba Watson, Henrik Stenson, Louis Oosthuizen, Shane Lowry and Sergio Garcia are also at the event which is sponsored by the Private Investment Fund.

European stars such as Shane Lowry, Lee Westwood, Tommy Fleetwood, Ian Poulter, Paul Casey and Tyrrell Hatton will also be present in the Middle East.

With the increased prize fund of $5 million, the Saudi International has certainly turned a few heads as it is part of the $200 million investment from the Private Investment Fund that has been pumped into the Asian Tour.

Despite the questionable source of the money, many of the players have defended their decision to play and labelled themselves for what they are: golfers, not politicians.
