Day two at Centurion Club is finished at the LIV Golf Series opener just outside of London. The Saudi-backed, Greg Norman-led league will crown its first winner Saturday. They’ll also hand over $4 million to whoever it is that comes out on top of this three-day, 54-hole tournament. Everyone in the field is guaranteed a payday in this no-cut contest.
Charl Schwartzel woke up with the lead and will go to bed Friday night with an advantage heading into Saturday’s final round thanks to a second-round 4-under 66. Hennie Du Plessis is solo second, three shots back. Peter Uihlein climbed the leaderboard during the second round thanks to a 4-under 66 effort. Uihlein is solo third and five back of Schwartzel.
Oliver Bekker is 3 under for the week and in solo fourth. Scott Vincent, Phacara Khongwatmai, Sam Horsfield, and Dustin Johnson are tied at 2 under and in fifth.
The league is spearheaded by Greg Norman and backed by Saudi Arabia’s Public Investment Fund, one of the world’s largest sovereign wealth funds.
