Little girl asks LIV Golf's Phil Mickelson: "Why should I support your team?!"

LIV Golf has today launched a new fan-focused campaign called '12 Teams, You Choose', fronting it with a video that sees a little girl asking Phil Mickelson why she should support his Hy Flyers team. 

The Saudi-bannkrolled circuit will tee off its second season and brand new LIV Golf League season next week in Mexico. 

There will be 14 tournaments in total in 2023, as opposed to eight in 2022. 

The total prize money is now at $405 million instead of a measly $255 million

LIV Golf have not acquired quite as many PGA Tour players as they would have no doubt liked heading into their second season, but they have poached two standout players from the International Presidents Cup team.

As well as Mickelson, LIV Golf's latest 1-minute social video sees a number of other players involved such as Cameron Smith, Dustin Johnson, Bubba Watson, Sergio Garcia, Ian Poulter, Henrik Stenson, Louis Oosthuizen, Bryson DeChambeau, Kevin Na and Joaquin Niemann


The new "12 Teams. You Choose." campaign asks fans to pick their team ahead of the landmark season for the LIV Golf League.

At the heart of the multi-channel campaign is a TV spot featuring a young golf fan who asks the 12 team captains which team she should support.

"Hey Mr, why should I support your team," a little girl asks Mickelson, to begin the video . 

Leading LIV Golf players respond in turn with their own unique pitch and style in a game of one-upmanship to persuade the girl and fans across the world why they should choose their team. 

LIV Golf CEO Greg Norman said: 

"Anticipation for our league launch grows by the day as our global campaign engages fans ahead of a groundbreaking year for LIV Golf.
"The fans have spoken: There is excitement for team golf and for the league’s innovations that are challenging the norm in the sport.
"Our diversity in teams that feature elite skillsets and unique personalities will help build new rivalries and fresh ways to watch professional golf as the sport enters a new era."

Each LIV Golf tournament in 2023 will be screened in the United States this year via the CW Network, which LIV Golf claims will deliver coverage to more than 120 million households across the nation. 

According to a press release sent by LIV Golf, the 12 team rosters will be fully revealed on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday this week, with four teams announced each day. 

The LIV Golf League will showcase its fresh format featuring shotgun starts, simultaneous team and individual play, and energetic tournament experiences that include live music and fan activities for all.
