prize money payout for each golfer at the 2024 LIV Golf League Mayakoba
Joaquin Niemann won the LIV Golf individual title at Mayakoba Resort, securing his first title and a $4 million prize after a playoff against Sergio Garcia
Niemann had a turbulent week, shooting a remarkable 59 in Round 1, holding a four-shot lead after the second round, but facing a two-stroke penalty on the final day for an improper drop on the 13th hole.
The playoff against Sergio Garcia lasted four holes, with Niemann ultimately clinching victory with a birdie on the fourth playoff hole.
European Ryder Cup teammates Jon Rahm and Tyrrell Hatton joined the newly added 13th team, Legion XIII. Rahm is the captain of the team, and they secured the team title, splitting $3 million.
With the addition of the 13th team, there are now 52 players in the no-cut 54-hole events.
Changes in the scoring system include a new team scoring format, where the low three scores counted for each team in the first and second rounds, and all four scores counted in the final round.
The overall prize pool is $20 million, with the winner earning $4 million. The payout structure extends down to 48th place, which still earns $120,000.
New additions to the league include hot-shot amateur-turned-pro Caleb Surratt and LIV Promotions grad Kieran Vincent.
The individual prize money breakdown for the top finishers includes significant earnings for players like Sergio Garcia, Jon Rahm, and Dean Burmester.
Legion XIII claimed the team victory, followed by Crushers and Torque in the team competition, each earning substantial prize money.
