The leaders tee off
Time for the final group to tee off from the first hole. Rahm is first up and he fades his drive on the par 5 a bit too much and will have to deal with the bunker on his second shot. Johnson doesn’t fare that much better as his drive catches the wind and also leaks right, while DeChambeau goes the other way into the left rough. A lot of power from that final group, but not the best tee shots to start.
Meanwhile, Casey starts strong on his first hole with a pretty approach into the par-4 second hole to within three feet to leave an easy birdie putt. Jason Kokrak also starts well with a birdie to move up to a share of third at -9.
And we’re off!
Championship Saturday is underway, with most of the players teeing off in the “staggered” shotgun start. The final pairing of DeChambeau, Johnson and Rahm will tee off about 10 minutes after everyone else. A few major winners and other big names will be chasing the leaders today, including Cam Smith (-7), Bubba Watson (-7), first-round leader Paul Casey (-7), and last year’s player of the season Talor Gooch (-8).
The leaderboard heading into the final round
We’re minutes away from the start of the final round of LIV Golf: Las Vegas at Las Vegas Country Club. That’s a pretty strong-looking leaderboard right there!
The big names came out to play in round two yesterday, with Bryson DeChambeau and Dustin Johnson both shooting eight-under rounds of 62 to sit in a share of the lead at 11 under, while new LIV recruit Jon Rahm will be chasing his first victory on the circuit from two shots back after a second-round, seven-under 63. The trio will make up today’s star-studded final pairing and will tee off at 9.46am local time, shortly after the rest of the field kicks off with the shotgun start at 9.35am.
LEADERS OUT IN 20 MINUTES
What a final group we have in Las Vegas!

Just the five Major titles and 43 PGA Tour titles between the three of them…
