MIAMI – The four teams are set to compete for Sunday’s Team Championship crown: defending champion 4Aces GC, along with Crushers GC, Torque GC and RangeGoats GC.
LIV Golf’s editorial team – editorial director Mike McAllister and team correspondents Joy Chakravarty, Mark Lamport-Stokes and Bryan Mullen – predict the outcome of the top tier and eventual team champion.
McAllister’s Top 4 picks:
The Crushers have the biggest X factor in Bryson DeChambeau. He’ll have a much more significant impact in stroke play than match play if he’s on his game, and with Paul Casey apparently in form, the Crushers have no real weakness. Having said that, the other three teams have sneaky firepower in the back end. It’s going to be a fascinating championship day.
Chakravarty’s Top 4 picks:
Except for the final round of Jeddah, the Crushers have been in sensational form in the second half of the season and will have momentum on their side. The youthful Torque line-up have a similar story. and will be a force to reckon with. With all four scores counting, 4Aces and RangeGoats have a few weak links that will deny them overall glory.
Lamport-Stokes' Top 4 picks:
The youngest lineup in the LIV Golf League, Torque GC have won a league-leading four times as a team this season and were very impressive in Saturday's match-play semifinals. 4Aces, despite being defending champions, showed some vulnerability on Saturday while the Crushers look very good – both with regard to form and class.
Mullen's Top 4 picks:
Anything can happen in Sunday's format with so many of the world's best players involved, but it's hard to pick against 4Aces GC. The team has everything going for it, from having won the team championship last season to having arguably the deepest team. I wanted to go with the trending RangeGoats GC, but they might just want it too much.
