LIV Golf: Which players have made the most money after Bedminster invitational?

Henrik Stenson broke into the top 10 earners on the LIV Golf Invitational Series in Bedminster by winning the controversial tour's third event by two shots.

After three events in Hertfordshire in the UK and Portland and Bedminster in America, $75 million in prize money has been won.

With the combination of the individual and team formats each week, one event can be very profitable for some players. Charl Schwartzel certainly discovered this in week one.

The former Masters champion won the breakaway series' inaugural event at Centurion Golf Club. Stinger GC also won the team event, so he took home a staggering total of $4.75 million.

Each week, $20 million is put aside for the 48-player prize pool. The winner earns $4 million and the player in dead last will pocket a comforting sum of $120,000.


Also each week, $5 million is on offer to the top three teams. $3 million is divided among the top team ($750,000 each), $1.5 million is given to the runner-up side ($375,000 each) and $500,000 is for the third-placed team ($125,000 each).

South Africa has dominated the Saudi-backed series so far. Branden Grace carded a 65 in the final round of event two at Pumpkin Ridge to win the tournament by two shots. He picked up $4,375,000 for his troubles which is roughly a third of his career earnings on the PGA Tour.

Stenson, now the stood-down European Ryder Cup captain, shot a 69 in the third round last weekend to finish two clear of American Matthew Wolff in New Jersey.

It's no surprise that Schwartzel and Grace remain at the top of the 'most money earned' list of the LIV Golf Invitational Series, but which 10 players have banked the most in prize funds after three events?

10 - Peter Uihlein: $2,176,000

9 - Louis Oosthuizen: $2,816,667 

8 - Talor Gooch: $3,403,000

7 - Carlos Ortiz: $3,425,000

6 - Hennie du Plessis: $3,530,000 

5 - Patrick Reed: $3,750,000

4 - Henrik Stenson: $4,375,000 

3 - Dustin Johnson: $5,212,500

2 - Charl Schwartzel: $5,491,000

1 - Branden Grace: $6,918,333
