2023 LIV Golf Adelaide prize money payouts for each player and team in Australia

Few players have capitalized more since taking their talents to LIV Golf than Talor Gooch.

The 31-year-old Oklahoman helped the 4 Aces win the team title last year and won for the first time as an individual on Sunday at LIV Golf Adelaide at the Grange Golf Club in Australia. Gooch nearly blew a 10-shot lead in the final round, but will take home the top prize of $4 million for his efforts, just south of half of his career earnings over 121 starts on the PGA Tour ($9,250,299). Over 12 LIV starts, Gooch has made $15,641,232.

Runner-up Anirban Lahiri finished three shots back and earned $2.25 million, while the following players who finished T-3 will each leave with $1 million: Cameron Tringale, Patrick Reed, Cameron Smith and Pat Perez.

Check out how much each player and team earned at LIV Golf’s fourth event of its 2023 season.

LIV owns a 75 percent stake in each franchise and provided teams with an undisclosed amount of operating capital for the year. The teams are expected to largely run on their own dime this season, with team prize earnings going directly towards its day-to-day costs.

The upstart circuit led by Greg Norman and backed by Saudi Arabia’s Public Investment Fund has long been criticized as a way for the Kingdom to sportswash its controversial human rights record. Saudi Arabia has been accused of politically motivated killings, torture, forced disappearances and inhumane treatment of prisoners. Members of the royal family and Saudi government were accused of involvement in the murder of Jamal Khashoggi, a Saudi journalist and Washington Post columnist.
