August 30 10:15 a.m. Updated to add the long-anticipated addition of Cameron Smith, as well as Harold Varner III, Cameron Tringale, Marc Leishman and Anirban Lahiri.

August 29 5:00 p.m. Updated to reflect Joaquin Niemann joining the tour, making him the highest ranked player in the current OWGR under contract to the startup.

As the LIV Golf Tour approaches its fourth event to open the month of September, we continue to get more news surrounding some of the big names joining up. Phil Mickelson was the first big-timer to join the ranks, though he was quickly followed by Dustin Johnson and Bryson DeChambeau, among others.

LIV Tour golfers were allowed to participate in the majors such as the U.S. Open and the Open Championship, but their status for future events is still up in the air. There’s been no official extension of invitations by The Masters for next year’s first major in April, and players on the upstart tour aren’t yet earning Official World Golf Rankings points that are used to get into those events.

While many LIV players have exemptions for several more years thanks to major wins such as Mickelson, Johnson, and DeChambeau, the ability to continue qualifying is still in question.

The PGA Tour has issued a suspension to LIV golfers, who are unable to participate in any events for the indefinite future.

Here, we’ll keep track of which golfers have joined the LIV Golf Tour along with their Official World Golf Ranking.
