LIV Golf Invitational Final Purse, Prize Money, Payouts for Entire Field in London: Schwartzel Bags $4 Million for Victory

Charl Schwartzel went wire-to-wire to win the debut LIV Golf event, and claim a $4 million first prize. There are also cash prizes for the team event. Here's the full prize-money breakdown.

The first event in the controversial LIV Golf International Series is in the books, and former Masters champion Charl Schwartzel is the champion after a wire-to-wire win in the 54-hole event. LIV is offering large payouts to its competitors, and because there is no cut, every player in the field earned a check. 

The money comes from the Public Investment Fund, the sovereign wealth fund of Saudi Arabia, which invests in companies around the world and uses its resources to contribute to projects that help the country’s reputation. Here is the breakdown:
