Poulter and McDowell among LIV Golf stars signed up for International Series London – Golf News

By admin May14,2024

Former Ryder Cup stars Ian Poulter and Graeme McDowell will be among the players on show at the International Series England, an Asian Tour event that is being held Foxhills Club & Resort in Surrey from August 8-11.

It is the second time that Poulter will play the Asian Tour’s enhanced event on British soil – he finished runner-up in last year’s edition held at Close House – and the co-captain of Majesticks GC will be joined by a host of other LIV Golf players at the event which will be played over Foxhills’ championship Longcross course.

McDowell, the 2010 US Open champion, has also been confirmed in the line up at the Surrey venue, along with Harold Varner III, Anirban Lahiri, Branden Grace, Richard Bland and English compatriot Sam Horsfield.

Poulter said: “Playing in England has and always will be very special for me. Having home crowds and family and friends supporting is always awesome. I’m very much looking forward to playing the International Series event at Foxhills.

He added: “Despite it being only an hour or so from my home in the UK, I have never played at Foxhills before, so I am looking forward to getting there and playing a few practice rounds and getting a look at the venue, and then really giving it a good go.”

Poulter expects more LIV Golf League stars to sign up in the coming weeks. He said: “With the scheduling that the Asian Tour has done, it enables a few of the LIV Golf players to compete on The International Series which is fantastic. I think you will see a lot of guys play events like this to get that extra competition and also gain valuable world ranking points.”

A host of stars from the Asian Tour have also been confirmed as they seek points in the season-long race for The International Series Rankings title, with the champion securing a place on the LIV Golf League and over 30 places available for the season-ending LIV Golf Promotions event.

In-form American John Catlin will be one of the favourites at Foxhills, following back-to-back tournament wins, clinching the Saudi Open following his play-off win over David Puig at the International Series Macau. Two-time Hong Kong Open champion Wade Ormsby, 11-time champion Gaganjeet Bhullar of India, and talented Thai newcomer Denwit Boriboonsub, who won three consecutive tournaments at the end of the 2023 season, are also among the Asian Tour talent confirmed to tee it up.
