The 2024 LIV season kicks off in Mexico with LIV Mayakoba with stars Jon Rahm and Tyrell Hatton making their debuts in the Saudi-funded league.
Hatton should thrive on the LIV circuit with his willingness to compete something desperately needed at LIV. Hatton ranks Top 20 in Putting Average, Strokes Gained: Putting and Scrambling so should be well suited at Mayakoba.
Only three winners started longer than $23 last year so the focus should be at the top of the market. Smith won twice last year but at his best was the top player on the LIV circuit. Leads LIV in Putting Average and Strokes Gained: Putting while he ranks 2nd in Birdie or Better, 4th in Par 3 Scoring and 10th in Scrambling.
Reed was terrible here last year but has a great profile so willing to go again at a big price. Reed ranked Top 5 in Strokes Gained: Putting, Putting Average, Par 3 Scoring and Scrambling. Looks well over the odds.
Tringale is a complete non-winner and currently holds the record for amount of money won by a maiden on the PGA Tour. Profiles nicely here though. Led LIV in Par 3 Scoring last year while he ranks 8th in Scrambling, 8th in Putting Average and 10th in Strokes Gained: Putting
