Teams Are Able to Trade Players Beginning Today Through June 9

Teams May Also Negotiate Extensions of Player Contracts with Players in the Final Year of their Contract

LONDON, NEW YORK and West Palm Beach, Fla. – LIV Golf has launched the League’s first-ever mid-season trading window to support opportunities for teams to improve their rosters during the season. Beginning today through Sunday, June 9, teams are free to negotiate trades in which a straight swap of players takes place. Both teams must agree to the trade and modifications to players’ contracts may not take place.

In addition, players in the final year of their contract may negotiate an extension with their current team during this window.

“As LIV Golf grows, the League will continue to establish opportunities to strengthen the competition. By opening a trade window midway through the season, all 13 teams have an opportunity to fine-tune their rosters and assess their team’s composition and performance,” said LIV Golf Commissioner and CEO Greg Norman. “LIV Golf is delivering another exciting opportunity for professional golf that aligns with the traditions of many team sports around the globe, promoting strategic player moves and enriched team storylines.”

Last offseason, a series of player movements among teams introduced the first-ever trades in professional golf. Captain Dustin Johnson’s 4Aces GC acquired Harold Varner III in a trade with RangeGoats GC for Peter Uihlein. The RangeGoats, captained by Bubba Watson, also acquired Matthew Wolff from Smash GC, with Brooks Koepka’s team receiving Talor Gooch, the 2023 LIV Golf League Individual Champion, in return. In addition, Carlos Ortiz, previously of Fireballs GC, earned a top 24 position in last year’s standings and opted for free agency to sign with Torque GC. That opened up a spot on the Fireballs roster, with captain Sergio Garcia signing Open Zone free agent David Puig.

Players finishing in the top 24 Lock Zone at the end of the 13th event secure their 2025 spot in the League. Players finishing 25-48 in the Open Zone who are out of contract will need to be re-signed by their team or picked up by another team. Players finishing 49 and below in the Drop Zone are relegated out of the League and qualify for the 2024 LIV Golf Promotions tournament.
