LIV Golf has announced a fresh change to its Round 1 groupings in Adelaide this week as team members will play together in threesomes.
Each of the 12 LIV Golf team captains will be sent out in the first four groups on Friday in Australia, with the remaining three squad members then playing alongside each other thereafter.
This marks the first time LIV Golf has put team members together in threesomes.
Players will tee off in a shotgun start as normal on LIV Golf at 11.45am local time.
This week marks the first ever LIV Golf event in Australia.
We recently put together a guide on all the things you need to know about LIV Golf Adelaide.

When news first emerged of the changes to the first round groupings on LIV Golf this week, a large number of golf fans pointed the finger immediately at Patrick Reed, as you will see from the tweets below.
Reed, who plays for Dustin Johnson's 4 Aces GC, will be teeing it up alongside his fellow team members Peter Uihlein and Pat Perez.
Here are some of the tweets:
Sounds like Patrick Reed will be your first round leader.— Jason Moriarty (@jasonjaymo26) April 19, 2023
Patrick Reed is going to love this format…he’ll be using the old foot wedge a little more often#LivGolfCircus— Don Zinyk (@Boomerzinyk) April 19, 2023
Not sure MBS will be too happy with Greg when he's forced to pay Patrick Reed $54m for his totally legitimate round of 54 tomorrow.— Ramble (@GolfRamble) April 19, 2023
Rules official to mark P Reed's card?— Crido (@crido888) April 19, 2023
