American fans of both golf and soccer will hear some familiar voices if they decide to tune in to the LIV Golf Invitational Series this week.
The Saudi Arabia-backed entity led by Greg Norman that plans to rival the PGA Tour finally announced on Monday that Thursday’s first round at Centurion Club outside London can be streamed on the company’s website, as well as YouTube and Facebook. The list of global networks covering the inaugural event “will be made available later this week,” according to a release.
The announcement also stated that NBC Sports’ former voice of the Premier League, Arlo White, would be the play-by-play announcer, with Jerry Foltz and Dom Boulet joining in the booth. Su-Ann Heng, a former No. 1 in Singapore, will lead on-course commenting. Troy Mullins, “will serve as an on-course reporter and social influencer.”
