The full field of 48 players has been confirmed for the second LIV Golf Invitational Series event, which begins on 30 June at Pumpkin Ridge Golf Club in Portland, Oregon.

The likes of Phil Mickelson and Dustin Johnson have now been joined by Bryson DeChambeau, Brooks Koepka and Patrick Reed as the latest high-profile players to defect from the PGA Tour.

Charl Schwartzel won the inaugural event at Centurion Club in Helem Hempstead and claimed an eye-watering £3.85m in prize money.

There will be a £20m prize pot available once again as the Saudi-backed breakaway series continues to gather momentum, despite the sanction of the PGA Tour and DP World Tour, with Carlos Ortiz and Matthew Wolff committing to LIV Golf in the last week alone.
