James Piot set to play on Phil Mickelson’s LIV golf team this season

James Piot has been a standout amateur golfer representing Michigan State. In East Lansing, Piot secured honors of Big Ten Freshman of the Year, All-Big Ten and All-American, but the biggest honor was winning the 2021 US Amateur Open.

Now, Piot has turned pro and has opted to compete on the LIV golf league.

LIV is known for bringing a team concept to professional golf, and the league has set the teams for the upcoming 2023 season.

For the 2023 season, Piot will be competing alongside the golfing legend Phil Mickelson on the ‘Hyflyers’, a team that will be captained by Mickelson.
