The top team at this weekend’s event at Doral takes home a $16 million prize which will be split evenly amongst its four members. The 12th-place team even takes home a nice chunk of change, too, taking a $1 million prize amongst its ranks.
The final event of the year caps a tumultuous first go of it for LIV Golf, which saw its ranks rapidly expand from the first event back in June. In all, seven different golfers won each of the tour’s first seven events, delivering on a promise of parity made before the start of the season.
