LIV Golf player Talor Gooch hit back at the comments Shane Lowry made at the BMW PGA Championship by describing the 4 Aces win in Chicago as "another one for the good guys."

Alongside Dustin Johnson, Patrick Reed and Pat Perez, Gooch won the team event on the LIV Golf Tour for the fourth invitational running. He has earned $3 million in the process and that's without his individual earnings.

The foursome got on stage in front of the fans at Rich Harvest Farms to be announced as the winners again. Gooch videoed the moment and posted it on Instagram with a caption reading: "Another one for the good guys."

The American copied the very same words used by Lowry who won the DP World Tour's flagship event nine days ago. Gooch was one of 18 LIV players to tee it up at Wentworth.

Lowry was one of a handful of players who didn't want participants from the Saudi-backed series to play at the West Course. The Irishman made this clear again after winning for the first time in three years.

"I made no secret how I feel about the whole thing. I wanted to win for myself first and foremost, but for everyone that has stayed loyal to this tour I really feel this is one for the good guys," Lowry said.

"It’s been a good year, but felt like I’ve been close a few times and only a few tournaments left this season and I really wanted to win one and this was top of the list."

This is another example of the division that has been caused by the emergence of the LIV Golf Tour. Rory McIlroy and Billy Horschel shared the opinion of Lowry at Wentworth and stated that LIV Golf players shouldn't have been allowed to enter.

Nonetheless, Gooch performed admirably at the BMW PGA Championship. He eagled the 18th hole to finish in outright 4th place and this lifted him to 35th in the world rankings.

The quest for world ranking points was outlined as a reason for some players' participation by Horschel. Regardless of Gooch's motivation, he certainly accumulated important points which could see him qualify for The Masters in 2023
