The third leg of the 2022 LIV Golf Invitational Series will be held in the Garden State at Trump National Golf Club in Bedminster, N.J. this weekend. 

Payouts are a huge component of the divisive golf series, with players opting to be free from PGA membership to join the new, cash-flush league.

Let’s look at how the purse breaks down for this upcoming event in New Jersey.

How much can the LIV Golf winner make at Bedminster? 

The 48-player field will be competing for the top prize of $4 million that goes to the golfer in first place after the three-day tournament. 

How much money can other players make at Bedminster?

After first place’s $4 million cut, the tournament runner-up at Bedminster will earn $2,125,000 million. Third place nets $1.5 million.

All 48 LIV golfers will win a minimum of $120,000 for participating in the event at Trump National Golf Club.

This greatly differs from the payouts of the 2022 Open Championship, where the winner Cameron Smith earned $2.5 million, second-place Cameron Young won $1.455 million and third-place Rory McIlroy won $933,000.

How much money will each tournament of the LIV Golf Invitational Series distribute?

The LIV Golf Invitational Series includes eight events spread across 2022, 10 in 2023 and 14 in 2024 and 2025. 

Players are competing for $225 million over the span of the eight events in 2022.

Out of the eight events in 2022, seven of them will have a purse of $25 million and one will have a purse of $50 million, which will be the Miami finale.

How much money did LIV golfers make at the 2022 Open Championship?
