Following the second event of the LIV Golf Invitational Series at Pumpkin Ridge Golf Club in Portland OR, our LIV Golf Power Rankings require a touchup.
LIV GOLF Power Rankings
10. Talor Gooch
Consecutive top-10 finishes pair perfectly with Gooch’s claim that the atmosphere at Pumpkin Ridge this past week oozed Ryder Cup vibes.
9. Bryson DeChambeau
The Scientist finished 10th in his LIV Golf debut at -2, and it stands as his best showing on any tour this season. In related news, his research budget has quadrupled.
8. Carlos Ortiz
You’ve probably heard of a certain course fitting a golfer’s eye. Well, the upstart series definitely fits Ortiz’s. He missed the cut in seven of his past 11 PGA Tour events before leading at Pumpkin Ridge through two rounds in his LIV debut. He finished second.
7. Matthew Wolff
A potential face of the future for the LIV Series, Wolff had a solid debut with three rounds of par or better en route to tying for eighth place.
6. Sam Horsfield
After tying for fifth place in the inaugural London event, Horsfield tied for 14th in Portland. The 25-year-old Horsfield continues to prove he’s a young European player on the rise.

5. Branden Grace
A final-round 65 for a second straight tournament yielded Grace the win this time around, and his resume through two events is unmatched.
4. Louis Oosthuizen
Oosthuizen finished with $6,306,679 in earnings across 21 tournaments on the PGA Tour last season. He’s already approaching that through two LIV events.
3. Brooks Koepka
Firing 76 in the final round was a disappointment to everyone but Koepka himself. He’s still just thrilled about only having to play 54 holes instead of 72.
2. Dustin Johnson
Johnson followed up his eighth-place showing in London with a T-3 at Pumpkin Ridge, and his 4 Aces won the team event. It’s an easy game.
1. Patrick Reed
Billed as both Captain America and a cheater, Reed takes it all in stride and strutted his way to a T-3 finish and team win in his LIV debut. He might also make it cool to root for the bad guy again.
Alright, maybe not.
