It’s been a busy few days for the LIV Golf Series.
The breakaway league officially got underway this week in London at the Centurion Club. While the first event seemed like a success, the biggest news from the week may have been the additions they made to their roster.
Bryson DeChambeau, the 2020 U.S. Open champion, will be making the move to the Saudi-backed, Greg Norman-led league in a few weeks in Portland. Patrick Reed, the 2018 Masters champion, is making the change as well.
The big draw for LIV Golf is the sizable paychecks they deal out at the end of the week. Here is a complete breakdown of how much each player made in London.
