LIV Golf is heading towards their third campaign with some changes to the roster. 

Of course, all eyes will be on Jon Rahm after the Spaniard joined the circuit for a reported £450m deal. 

But other than Rahm there are a number of players who will be teeing it up in the rival league for the very first time. 

The PGA Tour's rival held their inaugural qualifying school over 8-10 December 2023, which saw Finland's Kalle Samooja, Australia's Kieran Vincent and Japan's Jinichiro Kozuma earn spots with LIV

They are yet to be designated teams. 

At the time of writing their are also a number of players whose time with LIV appears to be at an end. 

Let's take a look at those golfers.

Which players have left LIV Golf?

Laurie Canter

The Englishman played in LIV's debut season and also stepped in for injured golfers during the second season. He tried to earn his spot onto the 2024 LIV Golf League via the Promotions Event but missed out in agonising circumstances. Canter got into a playoff but four-putted on the first hole before finding water at the next. 

Bernd Wiesberger

Would it be unreasonable to suggest the Austrian didn't play his best golf on LIV? Over the course of his career with the circuit, he posted only one top-10 finish which came in the first season in Jeddah. Things haven't improved and he decided to draw a line under his LIV career entirely by returning to the DP World Tour. 

James Piot

The 2021 U.S. Amateur champion was part of Phil Mickelson's HyFlyers but endured a difficult season with the outfit and was relegated. He tried to get back in via the Promotions Event but didn't make it past the second round. A future on the Asian Tour beckons. 

Jed Morgan

Like Piot, Morgan was relegated. He was part of Cameron Smith's Rippers and finished 46th in the overall standings. 

Chase Koepka

The elder brother of five-time major champion Brooks, Chase finished in the drop zone. He chose not to attempt to keep his LIV career going by withdrawing from the Promotions Event, citing injury. 

Sihwan Kim

Kim's results with LIV make for unhappy reading. Kim was part of Kevin Na's Iron Heads and his best finish came at LIV Golf Bedminster where he posted a T-33 finish. Aside from that, the highest he's placed was 43rd in the 48-man fields.
