For its stop in Australia, LIV Golf is taking a page out of the PGA Tour’s Phoenix Open playbook and building a “party hole” at The Grange Golf Club.
Brooks Koepka, who owns two Phoenix Open titles on the PGA Tour, said he’s “excited” about the “party hole” being planned for this week’s LIV Golf Adelaide tournament.
The four-time major winner added: “I’ve always loved playing Phoenix. Having an amphitheater type crowd around a hole has always been pretty special.
“I just love it. I love when the fans get a little rowdy. They’re screaming, they’re booing when you when you hit a bad shot and cheering you on when you hit a good one.
“It’s going to make that hole exciting. I think it should bring a different atmosphere, which will be cool.
“It’ll be most fans we’ve had so far, so it’s exciting.”
Fresh off a Masters runner-up, Kopeka has chosen ‘Dreams and Nightmares’ by Meek Mill for his walk out music at the “party hole.”
