Can it really be that the LIV Golf League is hitting the halfway point of its 2023 season this week with its visit outside the nation’s capital? Indeed, this week’s event at Trump National Washington, D.C. marks the seventh of 14 events on the 2023 LIV schedule, and a triumphant one at that with Brooks Koepka receiving a hero’s welcome after winning the PGA Championship last week at Oak Hill.
It wasn’t the money that Koepka earned last week ($3.15 million for his victory) but the stature of claiming a fifth major title—and doing so in such impressive fashion with his methodical final-round 67. In turn he single-handed seemed to sway the debate on whether a LIV golfer deserved to play on the U.S. Ryder Cup team.
After an exhausting week of celebration, Koepka is in line for another big payday. The typical prize money payout is up for grabs in the no-cut, 54-hole event: a $20 million individual purse, with $4 million going to the winner. There’s also $5 million on the line in the team competition.
Here’s the prize money payout for the field at Potomac Falls, Va. Come back after the tournament and we’ll update the post with names and individual paydays.
