If that kid was forced to follow the typical path he'd prob have to play on some small tour for at least a yr, then if he's lucky he might make it to the korn ferry the next year, then he'd have to earn promotion the hard way to the PGA, it might be 3-4 yrs before he'd make it to the big time even if he's great.

LIV is like a gift from God.

Many college players jump straight to the PGA tour to compete…their ability then takes over to stay on the tour…

They might get a few sponsors exemptions, but unless if you win or finish second their chances of getting on tour are slim. The only way to get a pga tour is to win on a sponsors exemption or to earn it through the korn ferry tour You couls also earn enough money on your few exemptions but that's really hard.. Q school no longer exists.

All they need is TV and they will blow the PGA away. Nobody gives a shit about history and tradition including the PGA, especially the PGA. They tossed that to obey their masters no pun during the plandemic. Canceled tournaments and mandated vaccines and testing when none of that was needed, necessary. By their actions they said history and tradition is meaningless. That opened the door to LIV. Entertainment is the only password and top players playing is entertaining. LIV has enough of the top players.

All LIV has to do to jump through their hoops and get everything they want is to go to 72 holes and get to 50 players, they could keep the shotgun start with up to 54 players(playing 3somes)

Yep, this season was more a proof of concept. Hard to believe these PGA trolls spent so much time and LIV hate for a stupid entity like the PGA.

I assume the payouts for 2nd,3rd, etc are huge as well. So he's made well over $25 million since joining liv - maybe 4 months ago, plus he reportedly received something like $100 million to join. Paulina will be well taken care of. They play this week in saudi arabia, I think this week is for the final individual standings, the final week in Fl is all team play.

Here's the details - DJ is at almost $31 million so far. You know, that's almost too much.

LIV Golf Payouts: How Much Prize Money Does Johnson Win as Individual Champion?​

DJ is your 2022 LIV Golf Individual Champion, an honor that comes with a truly gigantic bag of cash. Let’s crunch the numbers and figure out just how much prize money Dustin Johnson has earned.​

The individual competition component of Saudi-backed LIV Golf Invitational Series’ inaugural campaign doesn’t conclude until Sunday, Oct. 16 in Jeddah, but we already know who’s walking away with top honors. Thanks to five top-10 finishes in six of the controversial breakaway golf competition’s events to date, Dustin Johnson was officially confirmed as the 2022 LIV Golf Individual Champion Monday.

And considering the unprecedented, eye-popping structure of LIV Golf payouts, the former Masters and US Open champ is walking away with a boatload of prize money with two events — including the season finale Team Championship in Miami at the end of October — still to go.


How Much Prize Money Does Dustin Johnson Win?​

Let’s start with the biggest number of all (and surely the most outlandish): Dustin Johnson’s winner’s share of the overall $30 million Individual Championship prize purse is a payout of $18 million. The second-place overall individual finisher receives $8 million, while third place gets $4 million — currently, Branden Grace and Patrick Reed occupy the respective No. 2 and No. 3 spots in the standings heading into this weekend’s event in Saudi Arabia.

This is fully separate from his event-by-event winnings during the LIV Golf season, highlighted by his $4.75 million total payout for winning LIV Golf Invitational Boston in September — both in individual competition ($4 million) and as a member of the first-place four-man team ($750,000).

All told, Dustin Johnson’s individual stroke play results and prize money payouts through six LIV Golf events are as follows:

  • London: 8th place ($625,000)
  • Portland: t-3rd ($1,275,000)
  • Bedminster: t-2nd ($1,812,500)
  • Boston: 1st ($4,000,000)
  • Chicago: t-2nd ($1,812,500)
  • Bangkok: t-15th ($233,600)
Combined with his $18 million in Championship winnings, Johnson has won $27,758,600 in LIV Golf payouts from individual competition alone. Combined with $3 million in team competition winnings to date, that means DJ has earned $30,758,600 in total prize money this season in LIV Golf for just six 54-hole weekends of work.

(As a point of reference, Johnson’s two career major wins — the 2016 US Open and 2020 Masters — earned him $3,870,000 in prize money combined.)


What Are the Complete LIV Golf Payouts for 2022?​

As we wrote over the summer, here’s the prize money breakdown for LIV Golf’s first seven events of 2022, concluding Oct. 16 in Jeddah:

  • Each event features a total purse of $25,000,000, including $20,000,000 in individual prize money based on traditional stroke play
  • The first-place individual finisher wins $4,000,000, with $2,125,000 for second, $1,500,000 for third, and $1,050,000 for fourth.
  • Every top-11 individual finisher receives at least $500,000, every top-15 finisher receives at least $250,000, and the last-place finisher (48th overall) earns $120,000
  • An additional $5,000,000 goes to the top three teams: $3,000,000 for first place, $1,500,000 for second, and $500,000 for third
And for the season-ending Team Championship in Miami:

  • 12 teams of four players will compete for the LIV Golf Team Championship purse of $50,000,000
  • The first-place team wins $16,000,000 split evenly four ways
  • The 12th-place team receives $1,000,000
All told, if Johnson shoots the moon and wins (1) the individual competition at Jeddah, (2) the team competition at Jeddah, and (3) the 2022 Team Championship in Miami, he walks home with an additional $8.75 million, upping his overall 2022 LIV Golf haul to an incredible $39,508,600. Yes, it’s a pretty grand hypothetical. It’s also not out of the question.

LIV Golf is bankrolled by the Public Investment Fund, the sovereign wealth fund of Saudi Arabia. After the 2022 LIV Golf Invitational Series concludes, the competition will expand, rebranding as the LIV Golf League next year.

Attendance at the golf course in Saudi Arabia was a joke…almost half of what a strong PGA field draws…hopefully LIV goes to 72 holes next season….DJ needs the competition….

Maybe free beer and free admission might be the answer…plus LIV cheerleaders….
(Just joking Mr Merlin) but not about the beer and admission

Do typical saudi's like or follow golf? from what i saw most of the "fans" were westerners, only a few wearing Saudi robes.

I saw a headline earlier that LIV may have to buy their air time next year, whatever works i guess.

It is a clown show but entertainment not history and tradition is the new thing. PGA is a stale brandon. Just wait until the majors are missing the LIV players. Tell me who that Jalen Hurts more.

Final LIV event was today - the team with dustin johnson won the team event, pat perez is on that team so he won $4 million($16 mill split 4 ways) for being mediocre.

i think he made about $8 million this year.

i welcome LIV. i hope they infiltrate every sports league in america, especially those most bent on pushing wokism on their fans like they have a captive audience that has no other choice. maybe a little competition would remind those high-horse entitled fucks that they are supposed to entertain and not educate.
