LIV Golf's second campaign is in the books and Talor Gooch is the rival league's individual champion whilst Bryson DeChambeau's Crushers scooped the team title. 

Four players have also been relegated from the breakaway tour: Jed Morgan, James Piot, Chase Koepka and Sihwan Kim. 

Lee Westwood and Martin Kaymer also finished in six-player drop zone, but won't be relegated as they are team captains and have signed lucrative, multi-year LIV contracts

The relegated players will have one last chance to get their spots back for the 2024 campaign at a promotions event in December. 

How does the promotions event work?

The promotions event will award three places on the LIV tour. 

The fourth and final place is awarded to the order of merit winner on the Asian Tour's International Series. That spot is currently going to Andy Ogletree, the former U.S. Amateur champion who played in the first ever LIV event at Centurion Club in June 2022. 

The promotions event is a one-time opportunity for players to secure their spots in 2024. 

When is it?

8-10 December, Abu Dhabi Golf Club

What is the format?

Unlike regular LIV events, the promotions event will be 72 holes rather than 54. 

How does it work?

After the first round, the top 20 players and ties will advance to the second round.

That original 20 players is made up of those No.6-32 in the International Series rankings, winners of elite amateur events, top 200 in the Official World Golf Ranking and the top 20 of the World Golf Amateur Ranking. 

Round two features players who earned first round exemptions. 

The scores are reset and another 18 holes are played. 

The second wave will feature the relegated LIV players, any winner of a PGA Tour and DP World Tour event, major champions since 2018 as well as Ryder Cup and Presidents Cup players. Players ranked No.2-5 in the International Series standings are also eligible. 

From there, the top 16 players advance to the final stage. 

That final stage will be 36 holes and the leading three players earn promotion.
