Henrik Stenson won the LIV Golf Invitational Bedminster and earned a cool $4,000,000. He also pocketed $375,000 for being a member of Majesticks GC, which finished runner-up to 4 Aces GC in the team competition.

In total, the Iceman earned a grand total of $4.375 million for his three rounds of high stakes golf at Trump National Golf Club in Bedminster, NJ.

Even more mind-boggling, with a ten-percent commission, his longtime caddie, Gareth Lord, took home $437,500, which is more money than 152 of the 156 golfers who entered the PGA Tour’s Rocket Mortgage Classic – 137 of whom made less than $100k, including 81 that actually LOST money after missing the cut (and footing the bill for airfare, lodging, etc).

Just crazy.

    You call yourself a golf writer and you neglect to mention that those who missed the cut have sponsorships that cover a portion of their flights,  hotels, meals, etc.

    You’re no different than those “scabs” who left for LIV and turned their backs on the institution that allowed them to build their names, brands, and families.  Are you sucking off the Saudi teet as well?

    While we await what the real decision makers in this game have to say (Fred Ridley) those scabs have now filed a frivolous lawsuit to try and compensate for their lack of skills that they no longer posses, and diminish what credibility they still have left.

    No one complained prior to Tiger Woods turning the golf world upside down.  His success raised purses exponentially and allowed these scabs to play for more money that they could have ever imagined.   Now it’s not good enough,  somehow they were taken advantage of when they knew what was expected of them when they chose this profession.  🤔
