LIV Golf is back for its third event of the season Friday, this time in Bedminster, New Jersey. After spending the end of June in Portland at Pumpkin Ridge, LIV’s field will be playing at Trump National Golf Course.

Branden Grace is the defending winner of a LIV tournament, and he’ll look to defend his title against newcomers headlined by Henrik Stenson. The teams indicate captains are starting to get comfortable with “their” guys.

It will be the first major event played at Trump’s course since the PGA Championship that was set to be played there was moved to Southern Hills in Tulsa, Oklahoma.
