LIV Golf most certainly left its mark on Australia when the breakaway tour debuted in Adelaide.
It will undoubtedly be remembered for Chase Koepka's hole-in-one at the 'watering hole' which sent the patrons into a frenzy.
Over the course of the three-day, 54-hole event some 60,000 spectators were at The Grange to witness the tournament in what Greg Norman would describe as a golf-deprived area of the world.
If you didn't know, The Grange is a private golf club where members pay $4,000 a year on top of a $7,000 joining fee.
Members' use of the course was disrupted in the build-up to the event so the club gave away free tickets.
Per a report by Adelaide-based Advertiser, it appears that the majority of the members were happy with the PR and are content with LIV returning in 2024.
A club survey reportedly stated that 86 per cent of members were satisfied or very satisfied with the event, seven per cent were neutral while the remainder were unhappy.
One of those in the unhappy camp, it is clear to say, is Trevor Craig. Craig has been a member north of 40 years and told the paper that LIV was a 'profit-making circus' where the people 'paying the price are the members'.
He told the paper:
Barry Linke, the general manager of the club, told the publication:
One of the players who competed was of course England's Lee Westwood.
He decided to simply post this in response to the 'uproar':
LIV Golf are playing their sixth event of their 2023 campaign this week in Tulsa, Oklahoma after back-to-back events overseas.
