LIV Golf Invitational 2022 Highlights
"(At Centurion Club) I think there's a good mix of holes, with old-school linksey type golf, and then inside the trees for the first few holes, it's definitely a good test out here, and it'll test every part of my game, I’m looking forward to getting out here this week and giving it a crack." — Cam Smith
"It’s a demanding course, so you’ve got to stay real focused and to carefully execute the shots.” — Charl Schwartzel
"This course demands quality golf shots, especially off the tee. You’ve got to hit a lot of different clubs and you’ve got to hit the fairways, as they are quite narrow. I think it’s a good prep going into the U.S. Open, as you’re going to have to drive it well.” — Dustin Johnson
"I think it'll be a good test. I think those first four or five there in the trees are quite tough, and once you get through there, I think you're looking at birdies the whole way in." — Cam Smith
"It’s not an easy golf course. You have to drive the ball very, very well, It’s very tight…” — Sergio Garcia
