How much has each LIV golfer made compared to their PGA Tour earnings?

Whether they admitted it or not, many PGA Tour stars defected to LIV Golf for the money. So, with the first two seasons done, we crunched the numbers – and the results are incredible…

 

LIV Golf’s second season is in the record books after shaking the sport up more than anything we’ve ever seen in just 18 months.

During its debut year, a total of $255 million was dished out in prize money by the Saudi Arabia backers across eight LIV Golf events – a figure which includes $30 million in bonuses. Excluding their undisclosed signing-on fees, this meant 52 golfers earned at least $1 million in 2022 after joining LIV.

The second year is now history and quite incredibly, we are now in the LIV Golf League’s third schedule. Time flies!

So with the chaotic first two seasons now done and dusted, and with Jay Monahan having banned all defectors from returning to the US circuit – for now – here’s how each player’s all-time LIV Golf earnings compare to their total earnings from the American circuit – complete with the average earnings per event.
