LIV Golf Nashville purse, payout information

2024 LIV Golf Houston

NASHVILLE, Tenn. — LIV Golf is heading to this music haven and will be bringing more than just 2024 U.S. Open champion Bryson DeChambeau to The Grove.

Also on the agenda: Cold, hard cash.

This first-ever LIV Nashville event has a total purse of $25 million. Of that amount, $20 million is for individual winnings and $5 million is for LIV’s team competition.

The winning individual will receive $4 million. The winning team will earn $3 million.

For context, DeChambeau’s $4.3 million winnings last week were part of a record U.S. Open purse of $21.5 million.

Nashville is the ninth tournament on LIV’s 14-event schedule and the first to be held in Tennessee. Play runs Friday through Sunday. Saturday is sold out but other tickets are available here.

The no-cut format includes 54 individuals and 13 teams. There will be a 12:15 p.m. shotgun start each day.

LIV Golf is a professional men’s golf circuit that was formed in 2021 and began official play in 2022. The league is owned by the Public Investment Fund, a wealth fund of Saudi Arabia. LIV’s generous tournament payouts and huge financial contracts have helped recruit former PGA Tour members and major championship winners DeChambeau, Sergio Garcia, Dustin Johnson, Martin Kaymer, Brooks Koepka, Louis Oosthuizen, Phil Mickelson, Jon Rahm, Patrick Reed, Charl Schwartzel, Cameron Smith, Henrik Stenson and Bubba Watson.

With that has spawned a fierce rivalry with the PGA Tour, which has long operated North America’s top professional golf tournaments, outside the major championships. Last year, LIV and the PGA Tour announced a framework agreement to merge, but no deal has been signed.

LIV has not released complete player groupings for Nashville, but it confirmed DeChambeau, who outdueled Rory McIlroy for last week’s U.S. Open at Pinehurst, will play.

Rahm withdrew from the U.S. Open with a toe injury. He is scheduled to participate in a pre-tournament media session Wednesday morning.

Here is the LIV Golf Nashville purse, and payouts for individuals and teams.
