While its full 2023 schedule is still to be announced, LIV Golf will play in Australia next April. Its Punch team has four Australians including Cam Smith.

The LIV Golf League has yet to announce its full 2023 schedule, but commissioner Greg Norman was in Australia on Monday to confirm one event.

The Grange Golf Club in Adelaide, South Australia’s capital, will host LIV Golf on April 21-23, the first event of what LIV Golf said is a multi-year commitment to playing in Australia.

The tournament will be one of 14 events as part of the league schedule and will be a home game of sorts for Australian golfers Cam Smith, Marc Leishman, Matt Jones and Wade Ormsby, who make up the all-Australian Punch team.

“Passion for sport is at the core of Australian culture, and LIV Golf is proud to bring its global league to a country deserving of the world’s top competition,” Norman said in a statement. “This is an opportunity to grow the game with generations of Australians while connecting them with star players like Cameron Smith who are building a new platform for golf around the globe. There is massive potential for Australia to play a bigger role in this great sport, and I couldn’t be more excited to showcase Adelaide for our league’s debut year.”

Although LIV Golf has not made it official, the league is eyeing a tournament at Sentosa Golf Club in Singapore for the following week, April 28-30.

In its eight-event inaugural season, Saudi-backed LIV Golf played outside London and in Bangkok and Saudi Arabia, as well as five events in the U.S.

For those that choose to walk versus riding, do not place your bag on the tee box. Sometimes the bag can fall over or scuff the hitting area. Also, the bag can be a visual distraction, so it’s best to keep it off to the side.

There are two common methods for divots at the driving range — either lined up in a row or vertical lines. The one no-no is to leave them scattered about. It ends up chewing more turf then you need.

Aside from a golf ball deal with Bridgestone, which he inked in 2022, Jason Day is an equipment-free agent, which means he’s not under contractual obligation to play any certain brand in his 14-club set.

Since January 2021, Day has exercised that freedom to test and use a number of different brands throughout his bag. Most recently, GolfWRX.com confirmed that Day was using a Ping G410 driver, TaylorMade SIM Max fairway woods, a combo set of TaylorMade P770 and P7MC irons, Titleist Vokey SM9 wedges, and a TaylorMade Spider putter.

The G410 driver, which was released to the public back in 2019, has had a consistent starting spot in Day’s 14-club lineup for the past two years.

It seems as though something new has caught Day’s eye, however.

On Monday at the 2022 Shriners Children’s Open, Ping officially launched new G430 drivers, fairways and hybrids on the PGA TOUR. As part of the launch, Ping fitters worked extensively with PGA TOUR players who showed interest in testing the new G430 products.

As a Ping G410 driver user, Day was an obvious candidate for testing. Following his testing session on Monday – the first day of the launch – GolfWRX.com caught up with Day to get his take on the new Ping driver.

“Well, apparently it’s supposed to be a couple miles per hour faster, is what [Ping is] saying, and they’re also saying that it tends to go left-to-right,” Day said about the G430 LST model driver. “It may not work for someone who already fades it, but I’m one of the guys who [hits a draw]. But it seemed pretty good. I still have to test it out over the next couple days, but I’m driving it about the same, if not a little bit further, than my G410 that I had. But we’ll see, it’s so early. Right now, it’s pretty friggin’ nice.”

“I just like the way it looks and sits on the ground already. I don’t like things looking like they have too much loft and like it’s looking up at you and hooded a bit. The loft on [the G430 LST], it looks like you’re gonna hit these low bullet fades all day. The way that it looks right now, it’s really good.”

Day hasn’t committed to playing the G430 LST in competition this week just yet, but based on looks, sound and performance, Day seems objectively impressed.

“In the past, they’ve had to add more hot melt into the 410 or 425 just because the sound wasn’t right,” Day said. “These have a lot less hot melt, and these have a lot of head [weight], so it feels easier to me to transition into the G430, because I typically like a lot of head weight in my driver…

“The good thing is, I don’t get paid from anyone, so I can be completely honest and tell you if the driver’s crap; and right now, the way that it’s coming off, it’s really nice compared to my G410. Typically, in the past, with the 410, I put a little bit too much spin on it. I think a lot of guys struggle with spin with Ping, and I play a softer ball now, so it’s obviously adding to the spin. But they said that this is a lot less spin than the previous drivers. That might fit me perfect.”

Ping is currently offering two driver models (LST and MAX), one fairway wood (MAX) and one hybrid model (MAX) to PGA TOUR players. Keep in mind, this is not necessarily indicative of all G430 models that will be available to players, or the general public, in the future, it’s just what’s available during the first week.

Ping isn’t yet discussing what technologies and designs have changed in the G430 compared to the previous G425, but from GolfWRX’s photos on Monday, it appears the G430 LST driver has a “Carbonfly” wrap crown, Ping’s familiar “Turbulators” on the crown, and adjustable weighting in the rear portion of the sole.

We’ll keep you informed with details on the Ping G430 products when more information becomes available.
