Zimbabwe golf star Scott Vincent has been included in the star-studded field for the for the LIV Golf Invitational Bangkok at Stonehill from October 7-9.

Vincent, who qualifies for the LIV Invitational Golf Series by virtue of his position on the Asian Tour Order of Merit Standings joins the elite cast which is headlined by two most recent LIV Golf champions, Cameron Smith and Dustin Johnson.

The Chicago and Boston individual winners respectively, Smith and DJ are in the running for the inaugural Individual Championship title, with Johnson leading the way and Australian Smith surging into third thanks to a T4 in Boston before claiming the Chicago crown at Rich Harvest Farms.

LIV Golf on Tuesday revealed the 48-man field for the Thailand event, the sixth on the 2022 calendar, with four former world No. 1s and 12 major champions competing for the US$25 million purse, including Phil Mickelson, Brooks Koepka, Henrik Stenson, Bryson DeChambeau and Patrick Reed.

“The LIV Golf Invitational Bangkok marks a significant step for LIV Golf in Asia, a massive market with incredible passion for the sport,” said Greg Norman, CEO and Commissioner of LIV Golf.

“Our investment in the Asian Tour with the International Series has already begun to create new opportunities in golf. This tournament in Thailand is further proof of LIV Golf’s commitment to showcasing top competition amongst the best golfers on the planet while connecting with new audiences around the world. Excitement continues to build with each event, and we can’t wait to deliver a memorable tournament at Stonehill, a one-of-a-kind venue.”

Zimbabwean Vincent will head to Thailand full of confidence after securing his best ever finish on the lucrative LIV Invitational Golf Series with a solid tie for 12th place in Chicago.

The 30-year-old star closed with a solid two-under-par-70 at Rich Harvest Farms in Sugar Grove near Chicago to finish at five under par.

Vincent’s 12th place finish which earned him a cool US$332,500, was his best on LIV Golf, bettering his tied 20th effort in the inaugural event in London.

“It was such a fun week. I played with two legends of the game, and there was so much to learn from them. I have always admired Sergio (Garcia) growing up, and Henrik (Stenson) has been one of my recent favourites. To get a chance to play with those two was amazing,” Vincent said on his solid performance in Chicago.

“Hopefully, I can take my form to Bangkok, which is one of my favourite places in the world. The Asian Tour boys are going to have a bit of an advantage there with the condition and weather.”
