LIV Golf – Golf’s Richest Purse Ever!

LIV Golf’s inaugural season is fast approaching its end and it’s going to be a culmination like no other!

Try and wrap your head around this fact – US$80 million dollars will be up for grabs in the final blow-out tournaments – US$30 million for the individual championship and a staggering US$50 million for the team championship.

The individual championship will play out at the LIV Golf Invitational in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia from October 14 – 16, 2022 while the season-ending LIV Golf Invitational Miami Team Championship will be held at Trump National Doral Golf Club, October 28-30.

The iconic Blue Monster course will stage the seeded three-day, knockout tournament featuring both match play and stroke play, delivering the excitement of head-to-head competition as teams compete for a historic US$50 million purse.

Commenting on the inaugural season, Greg Norman, CEO and Commissioner of the tour said, “LIV Golf is already making waves among golf fans globally. Innovation creates energy that will further grow the sport into the future, and we are proud to be at the forefront of this movement.”

Norman continued, “Our world-class players and new team format are generating a thrilling conclusion to this first year, and I’m eager to watch the action unfold in our final three tournaments of 2022.”

Hot favourite in the individual standing is the U.S. Open and 2020 Masters champion Dustin Johnson who leads the pack of 48-players with 118 points. The American holds a healthy 39-point lead over his nearest challenger. South African Branden Grace is in second place and is trailed by 2022 Open winner Cameron Smith.

With just two regular season tournaments remaining for the 2022 LIV Golf Invitational Series, the world’s best are jostling for position in the individual standings, where a US$30 million purse will be shared among the top three podium places at the end of the campaign. This year’s champion in the final individual standings after the LIV Golf Invitational Jeddah will receive a first-place prize of US$18 million, with US$8 million to the runner-up and US$4 million for third place.

With 40 points awarded for a tournament win and 30 for runner-up, the door is still open for those outside the top 10. Major winners Sergio Garcia (43) and Henrik Stenson (40), top Chilean golfer Joaquin Niemann (40), former world No. 1 Lee Westwood (36) and 2020 U.S. Open champion Bryson DeChambeau (23) are among the notable names still in the hunt with two big weeks ahead.

Meanwhile, the team competition is building towards a thrilling finish, as LIV Golf’s 12 teams prepare for the season-ending LIV Golf Invitational Miami Team Championship at Trump National Doral Golf Club, October 28-30.

The Invitational Series has seen a remarkable run from 4 Aces GC, with captain Johnson leading 2018 Masters winner Patrick Reed, Talor Gooch and Pat Perez to the top of the standings with 136 points.

South African squad Stinger GC, winner of the inaugural London event and the only other team to record a win this season, is in second place with 72 points.

Majesticks GC, featuring Westwood, European Ryder Cup star Ian Poulter, 2016 Open Champion Stenson and English pro Sam Horsfield lie third at 57 points.
