The latest LIV Golf event had big names in contention and we’re checking in on the LIV Golf Chicago payout by finishing position to see the prize money.
In a loaded weekend that featured a ton of golf and football, the new series was at it again with LIV Golf Chicago as the Greg Norman-led invitational events headed to Rich Harvest Farms just outside of the biggest city in Illinois.
And heading into Sunday of the 54-hole shotgun start tournament, Norman had to love what he was seeing as two of the biggest stars who jumped ship from the PGA Tour to join, Cameron Smith and Dustin Johnson, were positioned atop the leaderboard as others such as Bryson DeChambeau and Joaquin Niemann were also lurking in the mix.
When it comes to these events, though, one of the biggest things people talk about is the money involved. So how much are these players walking away with in prize money? Here is how the LIV Golf Chicago payout for this week breaks down.
LIV Golf Chicago payout by finishing position
- $4 million
- $2.125 million
- $1.5 million
- $1.05 million
As has been mentioned many times, the prize money for these tournaments is quite exorbitant in comparison to the PGA Tour. For instance, you’d probably be looking at $120,000 for finishing inside the Top 10 at the Fortinet Championship this week as well. That’s what last place of the LIV Golf Chicago payout looks like, which is truly insane.
But it doesn’t stop there. With the 12 teams in action, there is also a payout for the players on the winning teams for the week in Chicago.
LIV Golf team payout for Chicago
The team payouts are quite simple. The top three teams at the event are splitting a purse of $5 million between them. That means that the winning team in Chicago will get $3 million to split between the four players on that team while second place will split $1.5 million and third place splits $500,000. That means that the winner if he was also on the winning team would walk away with $4.75 million. Truly insane amounts of money in LIV Golf.
