LIV Golf captain Stenson headlines field full of stars as 2024 Saudi Open presented by PIF returns to Riyadh Golf Club

• Saudi Open presented by PIF returns from 17-20 April 2024 at Riyadh Golf Club • LIV Golf star Henrik Stenson and reigning champion Denwit Boriboonsub headline field • Asian Tour event has a USD$1 million prize fund for the second successive year • Tickets available to purchase here

Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, 8 April 2024: The 2024 Saudi Open presented by PIF is set to make a triumphant return to Riyadh Golf Club from 17-20 April when LIV Golf captain Henrik Stenson is joined by five fellow LIV Golf members, a number of DP World Tour players, including Rafa Cabrero-Bello, and the stars of the Asian Tour.

The eighth edition in December 2023 was the first time the tournament featured as a fully sanctioned Asian Tour event and saw Thai rising star Denwit Boriboonsub finish on 18-under-par, three shots ahead of 2016 Open Championship winner Stenson. The 20-year-old has confirmed he will return to defend his title when the Asian Tour tees-off after a five-week break in the Saudi Arabian capital.

Building on last year’s successful hosting, the 2024 Saudi Open presented by PIF will once again see a strong LIV Golf contingent battle for the trophy as Andy Ogletree, Peter Uihlein, Eugenio Chacarra and David Puig join Majesticks joint-team captain Stenson and his former European Ryder Cup teammate Cabrero-Bello in Riyadh.

Puig, who won the season-opening Malaysian Open, currently tops the Asian Tour Order of Merit ahead of second placed John Catlin from the United States – winner of the recent International Series Macau presented by Wynn, where he shot the Tour’s first ever 59.

Golf Saudi will again show their commitment to ensuring opportunities for everyone with a number of spots reserved for invites for local Saudi and Arab golfers to compete in the tournament.

Stenson, who, after catapulting himself into second place with a final round 65 at the 2023 Saudi Open presented by PIF, is determined to go one better and lift the trophy this time.  The strong field assembled this year promises to be a thrilling competition.

Stenson said: “I am thrilled to be returning to Riyadh to play in the Saudi Open. I loved the atmosphere on my first visit to what is an incredible golf course, and I am very excited to experience that again.

“The facilities are highly impressive and highlight the strides that golf in Saudi Arabia continues to make. I am expecting another very strong and testing tournament against a field full of quality players, but I am eager to go one better than last year and lift the trophy.”

Asian Tour Commissioner & CEO Cho Minn Thant added: “We are delighted to be going back to Riyadh for the Saudi Open presented by PIF.

“The event proved an excellent addition to the Asian Tour having been elevated from the Asian Development Tour, and Riyadh Golf Club provided us with a perfect setting to end 2023. In Golf Saudi, we have a trusted partner who we are confident will deliver another fantastic tournament.”

The Saudi Open presented by PIF is the fifth stop of the season on the Asian Tour.

Tickets for the 2024 Saudi Open presented by PIF are now available here, with the action unfolding at Riyadh Gold Club from 17-20 April.
