Howell III, Kokrak Join Stenson As Latest To Join LIV Golf

The rule of 3. Some of you may have heard of it, but let’s all get up to speed together.

You can survive 3 minutes without breathable air, you can survive 3 days without drinkable water and you can survive 3 WEEKS without food. Kind of crazy to think that’s what the human body can do. It might be even crazier to talk about the latest three additions to the LIV Golf Series.

This week we’ve learned that The Shark has gathered up 3 very well-known names from the PGA and the Euro tour alike in Henrik Stenson, Jason Korkrak and Charles Howell III (see, I did that 3 thing again).

The three of them mark yet another milestone in the fact that LIV Golf isn’t going anywhere.

Let’s start with the obvious.

Howell III turned professional 22 years ago and has made quite a living making cut after cut being your favorite ball-striker’s favorite ball-striker. He’s gathered up three victories on the PGA Tour with the most recent coming in 2018 in Sea Island Georgia at the RSM classic.

After 609 starts and $42 million made on on the course, he’s set sail for the greener pastures that Norman and his field can provide.

Now to go “all-in” on our next subject, Jason Kokrak.

Kokrak turned pro in 2008 winning his first event on the Nationwide Tour in Boise. He’s made a long life with much success bombing it from place to place, being known as one longest hitters on the PGA Tour.

Ranking well in the upper echelon off distance for most of his career. His silky, sultry draw off the tee has seen him grow to the 36th ranked player in the world and has also allowed him to earn three wins in 276 starts with all of those coming over the last two years (lots of 3’s again, I know).

Our third and final departure is “The Iceman” Henrik Stenson.

Stenson is maybe the most intriguing of the 3 based on what’s going on for him at the current stage of his career. Maybe most famously known for his indestructible 3-wood that has wow’d us for years, Stenson has won 6 times on the PGA Tour and 11 times on the European tour.

His duel with Phil Mickleson at the 2016 Open Championship is the crown jewel in his trophy case with The Players Championship trophy and the Tour championship followed closely behind. The strangest thing to figure out in all of this is that he’s been stripped of his 2023 Ryder cup captaincy due to his LIV defect.

The three are expected to compete in their first event at Trump Nation Golf Club in Bedminster New Jersey next week.
