LIV Golf’s final invitational of the year will take place this weekend in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia at the Royal Greens Golf & Country Club. The tour is funded by Saudi Arabia’s independent wealth fund.

The final event of its inaugural season will be a match-play format tournament at Trump Doral Miami during the last weekend of October. The Jeddah event will be in LIV’s regular format, with individual golfers competing for a share in a $20 million purse and teams competing for an extra $5 million in a no-cut tournament.

Dustin Johnson enters the weekend as the favorite to win Jeddah. His odds are set at +400 at DraftKings Sportsbook, followed by Cameron Smith and Joaquin Niemann at +800.

The golfers should be ready to sweat this weekend. They’ll be playing in high heat, with temperatures in the mid-90s and sunny forecasts predicted, and you can add on humidity levels in the 50% range.
