Day 3 LIV Golf London sights, sounds and standings

After months of speculation and controversy, the final round of LIV Golf’s inaugural competition has arrived.

Charl Schwartzel retained his position at the top of the standings at the end of the first two rounds. Schwartzel increased his lead Friday to 9 under, after posting a 5 under 65 on Thursday, with fellow South African Hennie du Plessis 3 shots back to 6 under. Dustin Johnson is tied for fourth at 1 under, while Phil Mickelson is 4 over.

The PGA Tour announced Thursday that it had suspended all 17 members who were competing in the event. Players who participate in LIV events are not eligible to participate in the PGA Tour or any other sanctioned tour. Players who participate in future LIV Golf events will suffer the same punishment.
