Mickelson, who is not resigning from the PGA tour, joins Johnson, Garcia and others as LIV event captains

We learn more about the format of this week’s LIV Golf Invitational Series event.

Late Monday night it was announced that Phil Mickelson, Dustin Johnson, Sergio Garcia and Louis Oosthuizen were among the team captains for the event which runs from Thursday to Saturday at Centurion Golf Club outside London.

In addition to the 12 captains, the rather interesting names of the teams of four have also been announced.

Before the tournament begins, captains will choose their teams in a fantasy-style draft. The 48 players will play the 54 holes of the tournament, as there is no cut. The team format is a bonus on top of the traditional single stroke play format.

So far, Johnson, Garcia, Oosthuizen and Kevin Na have all resigned from the PGA Tour instead of facing discipline for choosing Event LIV over the PGA Tour’s RBC Canadian Open this week. Mickelson said he hoped to mend his relationship with the Tour and would not quit. Both Mickelson and Johnson have said they plan to play at future majors, but Johnson would not be eligible for future Ryder Cups as he is no longer a member of the PGA Tour.
