LIV Golf on Wednesday announced its first ever trading window to allow teams to swap players.

Now through 9 June, the 13 teams can negotiate with each other in an effort to improve their teams but without altering the contracts of the traded players.

"By opening a trade window midway through the season, all 13 teams have an opportunity to fine-tune their rosters and assess their team's composition and performance," LIV Golf Commissioner and CEO Greg Norman said in a release.

Currently, Crushers GC, captained by Bryson DeChambeau, are No 1 in the team standings with Jon Rahm's Legion XIII 11.5 points behind in second.

Ripper GC (Cameron Smith captain) are third, while Iron Heads GC, captained by Kevin Na, occupy the last spot.

Also, teams can negotiate contract extensions for their own players who are in the last year of their contract.
