After a one-month hiatus, LIV Golf is set to return to Houston next week for the eighth tournament of the regular season. The Saudi-backed league has 12 regular season events this year, each with a $25m (£19.6m) prize fund. Of this, $20m (£15.7m) is designated for individual competition, with the remaining $5m (£3.9m) going to team competition.

The winner of an individual tournament takes home $4m (£3.1m), while the four players from the winning team split $3m (£2.4m). This makes the purse at LIV Golf one of the largest in professional golf, with only the Players Championship on the PGA Tour possessing a larger prize fund.

Top Earners in LIV Golf

Torque GC captain Joaquin Niemann currently leads the pack as the highest-earning player on the circuit at $10,888,000 (£8,601,520) thanks to a red-hot start that included two wins in the first three LIV Golf tournaments. Meanwhile, Brooks Koepka’s first-place finish in Singapore propelled him from 17th to third place with earnings of $6,080,500 (£4,803,595).

Notable Names in the Top 10

Other notable names within the top-10 in earnings include LIV Golf Las Vegas champion Dustin Johnson in fourth place, Hong Kong victor Abraham Ancer in fifth, and 2023 Masters winner Jon Rahm in eighth place. However, veteran golfer Phil Mickelson currently sits in 38th place with earnings of $1,235,500 (£976,045).
