Trump National Golf Club Bedminster in New Jersey, pictured during the 2017 U.S. Women’s Open, is scheduled to host an LIV Golf Invitational Series tournament.

Greg Norman is pushing ahead with his rival golf league, announcing Wednesday the launch with an eight-tournament schedule that will begin in June and offer $25 million purses per event.

The league will be called the LIV Golf Invitational Series.

The concept that has been floating around for months and caused considerable disruption on the PGA Tour will see 54-hole events with no cuts, shotgun starts and purses that will pay $20 million for the individual portion, $5 million for the team portion, and a season-ending event that will have a $30 million purse.
