New LIV Golf app tops UK downloads as first official season begins

The live leaderboard will return for this season

The LIV Golf app, LIV Golf Plus, which launched last week, has become the number one downloaded sports app in the UK and US. It comes as LIV Golf Mayakoba, the debut event in the league’s first official season, took place this weekend (24-26 February).

“The introduction of the LIV Golf Plus streaming app ensures fans around the world will receive direct access to live and on-demand coverage of our league’s groundbreaking launch,” said Will Staeger, LIV Golf chief media officer. “In keeping with the content distribution strategy of other major sports leagues, the LIV Golf Plus streaming app allows more access to our content from more places for more people, spanning the traditional golf consumer to the casual sports and entertainment viewer discovering golf for the first time. We are thrilled to bring our innovative coverage of the game’s biggest stars including Cam Smith, Dustin Johnson, Brooks Koepka and Phil Mickelson to the sport’s global fanbase and are excited to grow our content offering on LIV Golf Plus in the coming seasons to drive deeper connections between viewers and our athletes in every corner of the world.”

LIV Golf Plus is now available to download for free on platforms including iOS, Android, Apple TV and FireTV. LIV Golf League broadcasts will also be available on, a new global streaming site.

The league’s production coverage, which LIV will continue to produce with its in-house team, will maintain its format and style from the 2022 Invitational season. Broadcasts feature an on-air announcer team of Arlo White, David Feherty, Jerry Foltz, Su-Ann Heng, Dom Boulet and Troy Mullins. Coverage includes a shotgun start, live leaderboard, enhanced drone coverage, statistics-driven graphics, and fast-paced coverage featuring nearly twice as many golf shots per hour than traditional golf coverage.
