Trump National Bedminster Hosts Second LIV Golf Tournament
Following Bryson DeChambeau’s incredible record-breaking performance in West Virginia, top players in the world arrived at the stunning Trump National Golf Club, Bedminster. The LIV Golf Bedminster Tournament marked the 11th event of the 2023 LIV Golf schedule and was the second of three events to be hosted at a Trump Golf Club this year. The star-studded weekend unfolded with flawless weather, a staggering leaderboard, and continuous excitement!
From the moment the players stepped foot on the property, the reviews of the course were phenomenal. The par 71 course, designed by famed architect Tom Fazio, has been meticulously maintained by our amazing team of agronomists led by Rob Wagner, one of Trump Bedminster’s longtime employees. Bryson DeChambeau had this to say during his visit to the media center ahead of the tournament: “This is a beast of a golf course. This is a major championship venue, I feel like, the way the golf course is set up in regards to the rough and the tightness of fairways. I don’t know if in the 50s is going to be possible this week. It’s definitely possible, but I don’t think anybody is going to do it. You’ve just got to focus on the process. There’s not much more to it.”
From Friday to Sunday, there was tremendous energy and spirit both on and off the course. From Fan Village to the Birdie Shack to the premium Club 54, every spectator had something to enjoy. Meanwhile, members of Trump National Bedminster were treated to unparalleled views from the member’s patio and putting green area overlooking the 16th hole. Members and their guests indulged in a variety of exquisite dishes paired with refreshing signature cocktails. “Our members were thrilled to welcome back LIV Golf for this very special weekend. It is a tremendous honor for them to see names like Dustin Johnson, Cameron Smith, Patrick Reed, Sergio Garcia, Phil Mickelson, and so many others compete on their home course,” said David Schutzenhofer, General Manager of Trump National Golf Club, Bedminster.
Proud owner of the property, President Donald J. Trump and his son, Eric Trump, who oversees The Trump Organization and Trump Golf’s world-class portfolio, made a special appearance during the Pro-Am, playing alongside golf stars Patrick Reed and Cameron Smith. “It was an amazing day,” said Eric Trump. “Both Patrick and Cam are not only two of the best players in the world, they are fantastic people who truly love the game. We had a lot of fun out there.”

The competition throughout the weekend was phenomenal, giving fans a spectacular display of camaraderie and unmatched talent. Despite facing two bogeys in his first three holes, Cameron Smith’s four-shot lead was down to two with Phil Mickelson trailing closely behind. Nonetheless, the combined efforts of Smith and the Rippers GC clinched the victory in Bedminster! This was a thrilling occasion as the Rippers GC won their first-ever team title by an impressive 11 strokes, the largest team margin victory this season. Jediah Morgan delivered the best round of his LIV career and Cameron Smith secured the individual trophy. Smith’s victory margin set a record in LIV Golf, placing him at the top of the Individual Champion points standings.
The celebration was one for the books, and rightfully so, with players toasting their victory in classic champagne style. Congratulations to all of the incredible players and teams, and a special shout-out to our winners, the Rippers and Cameron Smith!
