LIV Golf Portland: Final leaderboard and prize money breakdown

Published:

Branden Grace picked up his biggest-ever pay cheque as he won the LIV Golf Invitational Portland to take home $4.375m!

The South African marched through the field in Saturday’s final round at Pumpkin Ridge, following countryman and Stinger GC teammate Charl Schwartzel who was victorious at the inaugural event in London in June.

Grace took home the $4m individual first prize, while he received a $375,000 share of the $1.5m team prize Stinger GC received for finishing second in the team event.

The 34-year-old, who has four DP World Tour and nine PGA Tour wins in his career, has won an incredible $6.4m from the first two LIV Golf events – more than half of the $12,226,197 he earned in his entire PGA Tour career!

“I played flawless golf, played really, really well when I needed to do something special and came up and managed to pull it out,” Grace said.

“But just what a great day, it was amazing to come here, this new format, this new everything is amazing, and everybody here is having a blast.”

It was a good week for Grace’s stand-in caddie, Cliff Botha, too. Grace had Louis Oosthuizen’s former caddie on the bag at Centurion, where he finished third, but had committed to using Botha for this week, and the bagman earned more than $400,000 for his efforts.

4Aces GC players Pat Perez, Talor Gooch, Dustin Johnson and Patrick Reed won the Team Event at the LIV Golf Invitational Portland.

Speaking of good weeks, it was a fine start for LIV debutant Patrick Reed. He finished 3rd to take home $1.275m, while 4Aces GC (Reed, Dustin Johnson, Talor Gooch, Pat Perez) won the team event to each secure a share of the $3m bonus. Johnson finished 4th on countback ($1.275m), with Gooch 7th ($675,000), and Perez, who endured a miserable final day, T29th ($153,000).

Here’s a full breakdown of the final standings and how much each player took home from the $20m individual purse on offer at the first LIV Golf Invitational Series event in Portland. LIV uses back-nine countback to separate players on the same score and award them a final position. Players on the same score will still receive the same prize money.
