LIV Golf stars to whip up a storm in the Windy City
World-leading golfers will hope Chicago is their kind of town as the LIV Golf League returns to the Windy City.
Rich Harvest Farms is a breathless masterpiece unlike any other, and a premiere destination for golfers from all over the world. Fifty miles west of downtown Chicago, and tucked between wetlands, forest, farmland, and Illinois prairie grass, Rich Harvest Farms was the venue for Cameron Smith’s first victory in the LIV Golf Invitational Series during the inaugural 2022 season.
Aussie star Smith followed up his Open Championship victory with a three-shot win in Chicago. Dustin Johnson and Peter Uihlein tied for second, with Sergio Garcia and Joaquin Niemann completing the top five.
