A little more than four months after holding its inaugural Invitational series event outside London, LIV Golf is set to host its final individual tournament of 2022. The Saudi-backed circuit comes “home” with this week’s stop at Royal Greens Golf & Country Club in Jeddah.
For several LIV players, the course will be a familiar one as it’s played host to the Saudi Invitational, held each February since 2019. Past winners of that event have included Dustin Johnson (twice), Graeme McDowell, and Harold Varner III, all three of whom have joined the LIV series and will be competing this week. Varner, you might recall, holed a 92-foot eagle putt on the par-5 18th to win this past February.
Varner earned $1 million for his victory earlier this year, but the winner on Sunday of the 54-hole event will claim LIV Golf’s standard $4 million first place prize money payout from the overall purse of $20 million. And with only 48 players in the field and no cut, everybody competing is guaranteed to take home at least $120,000.
Along with the individual event, there is a team competition that pays out $5 million overall. The four-man squad that wins divvies up $3 million, with the second-place team splitting $1.5 million and the third-place group earning $500,000.
Here are the prize money payouts for the entire field in Jeddah.
