LIV Golf make a complete hash of their tweet about a player (not) at The Open

LIV Golf was in serious need of a mulligan yesterday after tweeting about its recent Portland winner Branden Grace ahead of the 150th Open Championship. 

They tried to be clever, only failed spectacularly as Grace did not even qualify for The Open.

This was something Sky Sports Golf's Jamie Weir was only too pleased to inform them: 



LIV Golf tweeted: "65 in the final round in Portland... can Branden Grace go even lower this week? #62" 

Weir replied: "Unlikely. He's not in the field." 

LIV Golf have since deleted the tweet. 

For context about the 62 hashtag, Grace became the first man to record a sub-63 in a major championship when firing a 62 (8-under par) in the 2017 Open Championship at Royal Birkdale. 

Despite missing out on a place in The Open this week, Grace did recently pocket more than $4 million after winning the LIV Golf Invitational Portland tournament, and coming second in the team event.

He also won a fortune in the first event at Centurion as he was part of the winning team. 

In total when you count individual and team prize money from two LIV Golf events so far, Grace leads the list with a whopping $6.625 million.

So life has still been pretty good for Grace of late, despite him missing eight cuts in tournaments around the world in 2022. 

Thankfully with LIV Golf events, there are no cuts in their 54-hole events featuring a shotgun start. 

Grace recently chose to resign his PGA Tour card in order to concentrate on LIV Golf tournaments. 

The South African sits at 130th in the OWGR, a position that is going to get much worse given LIV Golf tournaments do not yet count for points. 

A board meeting was held this week following LIV Golf's application to be included, but there has been no official comment just yet.
