LIV Golf is back in action one week before a major. It's once again offering a $25 million purse, with $4 million to the individual winner.

This time the setting is Houston, and it serves as a tune-up for several LIV golfers who will play in next week's U.S. Open at Pinehurst, including Jon Rahm, Brooks Koepka, Cam Smith, Bryson DeChambeau and Phil Mickelson.

Carlos Ortiz won't play in the U.S. Open but he's taking home the $4 million first prize after winning at the Golf Club of Houston. The Cleeks won the team title.
