Charles Schwartzel wins first edition of LIV Golf Invitational Series, 4.75M

Scheduled Tribes ALBANS, England – Former Masters champion Charles Schwartzel won सर्वात 4.75 million by winning the richest tournament in golf history on Saturday.

Schwartzel secured a विज 4 million prize for individual victory by winning a one-shot at the inaugural LIV golf event outside London – as well as मधून 3 million from his share of the $ 3 million purse earned by his four-man Stinger team. Another part of 750,000 was found. Top of the team rankings

Schwartzel, the 2011 winner at Augusta National, won the three-day event and collected more prize money than in the previous four years. The price was paid, however, and he resigned from the PGA Tour membership to play on an approved series without an apology.

Schwartzel has not won a PGA or European Tour competition since 2016.

South Africa’s Henny du Plessis, a teammate chosen by team captain Louis Osthuizen for Stinger in the draft, earned $ 2.875 million by finishing second at the Centurion Club between Hemel Hempstead and St. Albans.

This is the first of eight events in the first year of LIV golf that began against the backdrop of a ban on players signing up for the PGA Tour. The European tour has not yet commented on any restrictions for players who have jumped into the series without recognition.

Twenty players have now dropped out of the PGA Tour, with Patrick Reed, the latest former Masters champion, signing up for LIV Golf as the final draws to a close on Saturday.

However, attractive prizes are not enough to attract any of the top 10 players in the world to join the series, which is funded by the Sovereign Wealth Fund of Saudi Arabia.
