LIV’s main appeal is its massive purse. Although many golfers choose not to admit it directly, it is a fact that the lucrative payout of the Saudi-backed tour was the biggest cause of so many defections from the PGA.

The winner of the tournament will receive at least $4 million. It is possible to get a bigger payout for the winner, provided his teams win the event.
